Minister for Transport, Dr Ian Borg, has announced that phase three of the Marsa Junction Project will be underway soon.

The 2nd phase, which saw the reconstruction of the Triq il-Gvern Lokali and Triq Ġużé Gatt, in addition to the rebuilding and expansion of the Triq Aldo Moro to ten lanes, was completed last night.

It is understood that the third phase of the project will start in the next few weeks, with Infrastructure Malta having already begun preparation for the building of seven flyovers to replace the traffic lights junction at the Addolorata Cemetery.

These preparations are also said to include the laying of further temporary lanes between the factories on Triq Aldo Moro and Triq il-Labour.

The Marsa Junction Project is costing €70 million, and is expected to allow for around 8,000 vehicles an hour every day on three kilometres of new and rebuilt roads.

The project has also seen the digging of six kilometres of trenches for water, electricity and telecommunication cabling.
