In the past few days, improvement and repair works commenced in a number of roads in the heart of St Julian’s and Paceville in preparation for the rise in tourist and entertainment activities during the summer.
After discussions with representatives of commercial groups, the Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects initiated a number of interventions aimed towards road improvements in these areas, as was done prior to the previous summer in the areas of Qawra and Buġibba.
This week, thanks to night-time work, the contractors completed the asphalting from scratch of Triq San Ġorġ, in Spinola Bay. Similar works will be carried out in several other roads in this area in the coming weeks, with the aim of boosting the zone’s infrastructure before summer.
Other works in preparation for summer are also being carried out along several routes which lead to popular bays, such as the roads leading to St Peter’s Pool in Delimara, and the main route which leads to Mellieħa, Għadira, Armier and Ċirkewwa, among others. Work on the rebuilding of roads leading to Għar Lapsi Bay in Siġġiewi is also well underway.
This is part of the substantial investment that the Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects is doing thanks to the continuous work being led by Transport Malta’s Roads and Infrastructure Directorate. In the near future, this directorate will move to join the new agency Infrastructure Malta, which will be planning and implementing the government’s €700 million investment in the coming years aimed at achieving a great leap forward in the efficiency, safety, and quality of road infrastructure in Malta and Gozo
