In the last weeks the Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects through the Public Works Department together with Infrastructure Malta were implementing repair works on structures forming part of the Balluta promenade in St Julian’s. This work could be done without impacting the use of the promenade as it included repairs from beneath the ceilings in the said promenade.
On Monday 7th October the phase of works affecting the passage of people in this part of the promenade will begin. The work will consist of the removal of broken tiles, the installation of waterproofing membrane on the ceilings were structural repairs were carried out, new paving and the replacement of structural elements which suffered deterioration throughout the years, with new reinforced concrete ceilings. In the same period, work on the quay beneath this part of the promenade will also be carried out.
This is being done after the authorities carried out the necessary studies before planned works began and are now being continued.
Because of the necessities of this project and the works to be done, the public is informed that public access from Neptunes WPC to Barracuda Restaurant needs to be temporarily closed. There will be on site signs indicating that the public should use the pedestrian crossing near Neptunes WPC and walk on the pavement on the other side of the road until reaching the traffic lights near Old College Street.
The bus stop named Balluta in the direction to Valletta will be closed for the duration of these works. This stop will be suspended until further notice.
The Ministry would like to thank the public for their cooperation during these works and to apologise for any inconvenience.
