Works in Tri­ton Square com­mence

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Over the past weeks, the Grand Har­bour Re­gen­er­a­tion Cor­po­ra­tion, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Trans­port Malta and the Restora­tion Unit, has com­menced the works re­lated to the Tri­ton Square and the Land­front Ditch projects. These two projects will see the pedes­tri­an­i­sa­tion of the en­tire square around the Tri­ton Foun­tain re­plac­ing the ex­ist­ing bus park­ing area, as well as the for­ma­tion of a pub­lic gar­den in the ditch un­der­neath City Gate.

As part of this project, var­i­ous in­ter­ven­tions on the ex­ist­ing in­fra­struc­ture be­came nec­es­sary and these in­cluded the for­ma­tion of a round­about in front of the Ed­u­ca­tion Divi­sion, the up­grad­ing of ser­vices in the up­per part of Triq l-Assedju l-Kbir next to the Phoeni­cia Ho­tel, the up­grad­ing of the Biskut­tin area around the Christ the King Mon­u­ment, and other in­fras­truc­tural works in the Phase 1 Bus Ter­mi­nus ar­eas.

The pre­lim­i­nary works on site have been on­go­ing since the beginning of Oc­to­ber. As from to­mor­row it will also be nec­es­sary to close off ve­hic­u­lar ac­cess through a sec­tion of Triq lAssedju l-Kbir (next to Phoeni­cia ho­tel) so that a num­ber of ex­ist­ing ser­vices are up­graded, new ones added and the pro­posed round­about formed.

The fol­low­ing di­ver­sions will thus ap­ply:

Light to medium sized ve­hi­cles com­ing from Sa Mai­son or Triq Sant’Anna re­quir­ing ac­cess to Val­letta from Ex­cel­sior area will be di­verted through Ospizio, in front of the Cen­tral Pub­lic Li­brary Belt is-Sebh and back onto Triq l-Assedju l-Kbir.

Light to medium sized ve­hi­cles com­ing from Marx­am­x­ett area will be di­verted round the Ed­u­ca­tion Divi­sion prior to ex­it­ing Val­letta.

Triq l-Assedju l-Kbir will not be ac­ces­si­ble for heavy ve­hi­cles from the Ex­cel­sior to the Mall. Heavy ve­hi­cles will be di­verted to en­ter and exit from Val­letta from Wa­ter Front area (ta’ Liesse).

A turn­ing point for heavy ve­hi­cles will be formed next to the Mediter­ranean Con­fer­ence Cen­tre and St Michael’s Ditch.
