The ‘most beau­ti­ful’ €53m road flooded with wa­ter again

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Coast Road, de­scribed by Trans­port Malta as the most beau­ti­ful road in the coun­try, was again flooded with wa­ter in parts of it yes­ter­day morn­ing, driv­ers told The Malta In­de­pen­dent.

The €53 mil­lion project was opened by the Labour gov­ern­ment with much fan­fare, but it is not the first time that sec­tions of the road end up col­lect­ing rain wa­ter, slow­ing down traf­fic.

The project had been billed as hav­ing been one which was built in such a way to elim­i­nate flood­ing caused by rain wa­ter.

But part of the road close to Magħtab was flooded af­ter the early morn­ing rain, with driv­ers send­ing in pic­tures. One of them has termed it “Lake Magħtab”.

It is not the first time this has hap­pened. In De­cem­ber, the road had been flooded with Trans­port Malta say­ing that the cause was a faulty storm wa­ter sys­tem at Tel­għa t’Alla w’Ommu.
