Pavers busy with road surface to the Grand Harbour Albertown area.
Nice big puddle on the closed inside lane. 16/01
Cars already joining the new road from side roads today. 16/01
This is fine flow but what happens as one gets nearer to their destination? Bottlenecks I predict.
Hi Pauline Kimber, The traffic is flowing quite well using the two available lanes so maybe the nearside lane will be used as a designated exit and entry lane allowing slower traffic to use the three side roads at this point and maybe even a bus and cycle lane, I'm still expecting a speed restriction to appear on this road. A few years ago, it was the year that the old yellow buses were replaced by Arriva, we stayed in a hotel just outside Qawra, our balcony overlooked the main road and many hour were spent being entertained by the antics of Maltese drivers, no accidents but several near misses. There was a bus stop/bay just opposite which had room for at least two buses, a long queue of people would form as the buses always seemed to be running late, a bus would eventually arrive and everyone would climb aboard, the bus would pull out of the bay then stop a few yards along the road and loads of people would get off again, sadly during this short journey the actual bus they were waiting for had driven by without even stopping. There were a lot of complaints and I guess that's why Arriva didn't last long. Stay safe.
The two streets adjacent to JCR furniture are both one way, One flows off Triq ll Labour and one flows onto Triq ll Labour. Before the road works they were both very busy with traffic in and out of Marsa. It will be interesting to see if they remain one way when the re modelling of the junction is completed. The roads lead to and from the Fish Market and the Public Abattior.
I hope that this side road isn’t going to be used for drivers to enter on this main road...makes sense to use it to EXIT THE MAIN ROAD ONLY !
JCC........Nothing to do with the non existing Highway Code.....driving is bad .....
Pauline Kimber - Don't worry . The Maltese highway code is different from that of mainland Europe.
These roads are an accident waiting to happen .....
An early Christmas Gift to the Motorists who live at or near the Three Cities.
Monday 21/12/20 Surfacing finished and traffic now flowing along Triq II Labour and up to Paola along Sir Paul Boffa Avenue. The reduction in traval time from Valletta to the south will be welcomed.
Again we dig up the same hole yet again. 20/12/2020
wow, just looking at the Infrastructure Malta web site, A guy jogging down the ramp in the face of traffic, just by the where the wagons are parked on the new carriageway
Hi JCC, those deadline always seem so far away at the start of a project but at the end of the project all the small finishing jobs take forever to complete. It will be a wonderful Christmas present for the Maltese motorists and I hope it completely solves the traffic jams around Marsa. The Government are going to need a lot of wrapping paper and a very large bow.
It seems that they are frantically trying to meet the agreed deadline. It is the intention of the Government for this to be a Christmas present to the Maltese motorists.
