The bridge includes ramps and lifts to facilitate accessibility and has a direct connection with bus stops, footpaths and cycle lanes in this main road. The project began in the second half of 2019.
Apart from the structure itself and accessibility and safety facilities, the bridge includes new lighting while the surrounding areas now have more than 15 indigenous trees and around 130 bushes planted by Infrastructure Malta.
