Triq il-Patrijiet Tereżjani, that links the urban side of Marsaxlokk to the rural side at Tas-Silġ, is expected to be completed by next week after it was rebuilt anew.
This was stated by Infrastructure Malta following questions put by TVM regarding this road after in recent days drivers using this road were experiencing problems when using the road.
The situation was further aggravated by a lack of sign posting while those succeeding in finding an alternative route have to pass through a narrow lane that makes two-way access difficult.
Infrastructure Malta explained that where possible work takes place in different phases to enable the road to remain accessible; however, sometimes it has to be closed and this means using a rural road nearby.
The authority said it had noted the difficulties being faced by residents in recent days and is acting to complete the works as soon as possible. The contractor has also been requested to ensure the placement of temporary sign-posting to clearly indicate the alternative route.
Infrastructure Malta said this is among 90 residential roads being rebuilt with many of them nearing completion.
