Improvements to slip roads also planned
Cannon Road in Sta Venera is to be linked to the Marsa Ħamrun bypass to facilitate the flow of traffic from Birkirkara, Sta Venera and Ħamrun to the south of Malta, Infrastructure Minister Ian Borg announced on Tuesday afternoon.
He said in a Facebook post, that the plans, prepared by Infrastructure Malta, continue to build on the project carried out last year to improve the bypass.
He said that traffic flow towards Ħamrun and Qormi will also be improved thanks to the addition of another lane on the sliproad linking the bypass to the roundabout near the Maltapost depot.
Another lane will be added to the bypass by utilising space created in the project launched last year.
