Melvin - It seems to me that the extensive digging in the pedestrian area is laying the foundations for the new public toilets. Waiting in anticipation to see the result. The trees will be back with a reduced density.
Paola is an important hub and market town. The Grand Harbour to the North, the airport and the container port to the SE and Valletta to the NW. Reason for the heavy traffic. Badly needed a revamp. What seems to be missing in the plan is parking facilities. Opposition to this plan is understandable due to motorists are opposed to charges. Parking in the nearby streets is a headache to the residents and the local council.
The area is being upgraded to resemble a more pleasing area, although due to it's popularity the central kiosk will remain untouched. For some months before work started an artists rendition of the completed scheme could be seen on fencing up towards the Police section of the works
Please tell me what is being built here. This was always my favourite spot, mixing with Maltese families and the border was tree lined with benches. Mel UK
Wednesday pm and no workmen,must be a holiday regarding the anniversary of Malta going alone.

Big dig in the recreational area. I wonder what for? Also national flag in full flight at the Labour Party Club down hill on RHS. Today is 43 anniversary Republic day
Builders should be finished perhaps before Christmas,the job looks near finished.
Fred in London we have rules and breaking these rules will land you with a big fine, so we try and avoid breaking the rules.
hi Victor yes I saw that in Canada we have all the rules that you would like to impose over there and we still have lots of accidents more than they have over there for sure
Pedestrians are just walking through the cordoned off area of the worksite,whilst machines are working.
Fred have you been watching cars parked on the zig zag lines?
y watching the traffic .I did observed that's like a poetry in motion ,pedestrian and drivers seem that they trust each other rules do not make you safe
No work today. It is a public/religious holyday. A nice long weekend for the Maltese. The Immaculate Conception is celebrated down the road in the distance near the oil rigs.
