Infrastructure Malta has announced yesterday’s opening of three new flyovers at the Marsa Junction Project.
The three flyovers are providing new direct connections from Aldo Moro Street, Marsa, to two major southbound routes at this junction.
In a statement Infrastructure Malta explained that the first two flyovers will take you from Marsa to Vjal Santa Luċija, which has recently reopened in a South bound direction towards Santa Luċija and Tal-Barrani Road, Ħal Tarxien.
The third flyover structure connects Aldo Moro Road with Giuseppe Garibaldi Road, in the direction of Ħal Luqa, Gudja, the Airport and the Kirkop tunnels. This flyover provides two direct lanes between these two roads and eliminates narrowing in the temporary lanes.
With the opening of the three new flyovers toward the South, Infrastructure Malta said that it will be able to use the other three flyovers, completed last year, in their Northbound direction. Until last Sunday, they were being used in the opposite direction, as routes to the south of the country.
These flyovers are now closed for a few weeks and will receive a last layer of asphalt. Project contractors will also install the expansion joints and make the necessary line markings and signs to indicate their final directions.
It was reported that later this month, Infrastructure Malta will also open the northern carriageway of St. Lucija Avenue, from St. Lucija to Marsa. The agency will then also be able to open the seventh (and final) flyover structure of the new Marsa junction.
This flyover, which was completed a few weeks ago, will connect the north lane of St. Lucija Avenue with the Addolorata Cemetery and with the area where the park and ride facility will be held as part of the same project, towards Local Government Street, in the direction of Ħal Qormi, where the Turkish Cemetery is located.
The Marsa Junction Project is co-financed by the Cohesion Fund and the European Union’s Connecting Europe Facility. This € 70 million investment includes more than 12 kilometres of new lanes that will cross each other separately at three different levels.
