Hi DaveS, oh no, it must be bad to stop a major project like this, it now explains why there's no one around, I've just looked up Maltese national holidays and festivals thinking that was the reason. I still think the world has a long way to go before we're done with Covid-19, most countries seem to be having a large second outbreak, hopefully everyone will come through it. Stay safe.
Just reading Infrastructure Malta has postponed the opening of new lanes and flyovers at the Marsa Junction Project, citing the infection of an unspecified number of workers with COVID-19. Wishing them all a speedy recovery and a return to work.
Hi JCC, it's a pity the system isn't up and running today because it looks like you've had some rain, according to my rain gauge over the last 6 days we've had over half of Malta's total rain fall for this year, I wish we could swap some of our rain for some of your sunshine. I remember a few years ago being caught in a deluge on Gozo, luckily we had rain jackets with us but the experience of warm rain water washing over our sandals felt weird.
Kevin - My guess is that they will be rain water retention hubs from the galleys that will be collected into reservoirs from the new roads. Water is precious on the Island
Hi JCC, a couple of days ago I saw some concrete rings being lowered in to the hole and placed on top of each other, it must be at least 12 feet deep, and some lengths of pipe were placed in the bottom of the same trench but I didn't see if they were joined together.
Still not sure what this tunnel is for. Could be for a service tunnel or part of the rain water catchment retention scheme for much needed fresh water in the dry months. Every drop helps.
Hi JCC, Do you know how are they constructing the tunnel, I'd expected to see preformed sections being dropped in to the trench then concreted in place but I must keep missing it or is there another way of constructing it?
Big trench for tunnel carrying power cables and rain water piping to reservoir for much needed catchment rain water.. A lot of tropical rain will now fall on the new roads.
The old sign bottom right had gone
Lots of activity today 21/8
Hi Peter, I look at all the cameras but for some reason the Infrastructure Malta cameras make my laptop very hot and the fans run hard to keep things cool so I only view them briefly. I notice that some of the roads are being cleared of debris and the surface graded so I'm guessing we'll be seeing the tarmac machine soon.
Infrastructure Malta webcams offer different views. But not as interactive as Skyline
Slow traffic day today 28/7
Just looked back on the older photos from 17/8/19 and 25/11/17 showing how it used to be. What a difference.
Infrastructure Malta website has some interesting camera views but not as versatile as skyline.
Hi Peter, Someone else said they thought it could be where the Park & Ride will be, if you look at the photo on the Infrastructure Malta website it looks as if they could be right. Having seen the traffic backed up in front of JCR furniture store this morning I guess the completion of the rest of the work can't come soon enough.
