Almost 300 Maltese roads to be upgraded this year

The latest €70 million upgrade of Malta’s roads has been hailed as ‘good news for families and motorists’.

Another 170 streets across Malta are to be resurfaced and rebuilt over the next 12 months as part of the scheme, bringing the total number of roadworks this year to almost 300.

Malta’s transport minister Ian Borg said streets in Mosta, Birkirkara, Paola, Pembroke, Mellieha, Mgarr, Zebbug, Mtarfa, Zejtun, Qormi, Sliema and St Julian’s would among those to benefit.

Speaking in Zabbar where two roads have completely been rebuilt, he said today’s announcement was positive for everyone in the community.

He told 89.7 Bay: ‘I’ve come to visit these roads less than a month since the work began.

‘It’s not just about a fresh layer of asphalt but also about installing new services, building new foundations and creating new pavements.’

He said the work would include new drains, asphalt, road signs and extra safety measures such as barriers and speed bumps.

Dr Borg told reporters that the total investment was estimated to be around €70 million.
