Infrastructure Malta has announced that two of the seven flyovers for the Marsa Junction, will open at the end of next month.
The two flyovers are expected to connect up the northbound carriageway between the roads of Triq Giuseppe Garibaldi with Triq Aldo Moro and will be run in reverse fashion between the Airport and Aldo Moro.
IM said that today, drivers will start to experience a change in how the Northbound lanes which connect Triq Aldo Moro and Alddolorata traffic lights junction are configured.
‘As of tomorrow, road users will start noticing changes to the existing configuration of the northbound lanes connecting the Addolorata traffic lights junction to Triq Aldo Moro,’ IM says.
A second configuration will take place once workers have completed a new set of concrete decks for the second flyover.
Along with the change of road configuration and the continued works, IM says that Traffic Police and Transport Malta have been called in to, ‘monitor the roads leading to the Addolorata junction and to take immediate action in case of difficulties,’
The agency has also explained that the first flyover is almost complete, with 56 of its pre-stressed concrete beams already set in place along with the casting of its road deck.
In the coming weeks, the concrete beams for the second flyover will be arriving from Turkey.
In addition to the flyovers, IM has also explained that around 15 kilometres of cabling for electricity, Internet and telecommunications, as well as piping for water and sewage duct routes will be placed. This is in addition to a storm water reservoir.
The captured water would nourish the trees and greenery in the newly landscaped areas.
Engineer Fredrick Azzopardi has said the Marsa Junction Project is expected to be completed in December 2020.
So far 35% of the €70 million project has been completed.
