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