Sec­ond sec­tion of Kap­para fly­over opens this morn­ing

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - NEWS -

Trans­port and Cap­i­tal Project Min­is­ter Ian Borg yes­ter­day an­nounced on Face­book that the sec­ond newly-built Kap­para fly­over will be open as from this morn­ing.

He said that the project is two weeks ahead of sched­ule.

The first fly­over was opened in July and it is ex­pected that these two fly­overs will help the flow of traf­fic when stu­dents go back to school on Monday, 25 Septem­ber.

In his Face­book post, Borg had a dig at the PN lead­er­ship elec­tion, say­ing: “Some want to open a new road, oth­ers want to open the right road. To­mor­row at 9am we will open the Kap­para fly­over, 15 days ahead of sched­ule. This is a govern­ment which is work­ing and keeps de­liv­er­ing suc­cesses. Thanks to Trans­port Malta chair­man James Pis­copo and all work­ers.”

The Re­gional Road project started un­der the pre­vi­ous Labour ad­min­is­tra­tion in April 2016, at which time the min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble was Joe Mizzi. The project falls un­der the EU Co­he­sion funds al­lo­cated for the years 2014-2020 and will cost a to­tal of €35 mil­lion.
