Steel gird­ers to sup­port Kap­para bridge deck ar­rive from Spain

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The steel gird­ers that will sup­port the bridge deck and that will be placed through­out the whole ex­tent of the fly­over, have ar­rived in Malta from Spain, Trans­port Malta said yes­ter­day. The au­thor­ity said eight of the six­teen gird­ers would be trans­ported from Marsa to Kap­para between last night and Sun­day at night.

The trail­ers will leave Dock 7 in Marsa at 20:00hrs and will pro­ceed through the planned route that has al­ready been tested ear­lier this month, that is, from Triq il-Labour, Triq Aldo Moro, Marsa-Ħam­run by­pass, Santa Ven­era tunnels, Triq Reġjon­ali and Triq Mikiel An­ton Vas­salli.

The trailer will be driv­ing on the right hand side car­riage­way since it is eas­ier to ma­noeu­vre. The road will be closed in seg­ments to al­low driv­ers to drive through al­ter­na­tive routes.

Once in Kap­para site, the gird­ers will be un­loaded and welded in place im­me­di­ately, there­fore, ac­cess to Kap­para will be closed between 22:00hrs and 06:00hrs.

Po­lice and Trans­port Malta of­fi­cers will be clos­ing the seg­ments and guid­ing driv­ers to by­pass the closed seg­ments through al­ter­na­tive routes.

Per­son­nel from Civil Pro­tec­tion, and the con­trac­tor will be mak­ing the route as well to cater for even­tu­al­i­ties, Trans­port Malta said.
