All works will in the first phase effect only the lower part of Valetta so traffic circulation will not be affected – The Valletta Local Council together with the GRTU held further meetings in order to ensure that the upgrading of St Paul's street happens with the least impact to residents, to the business community and to the visitors of the city.
GRTU's communication with the Local Council has to our satisfaction improved and we aim to maintain this communication and collaboration and further improve it for the benefit of all.
An agreement was reached on a modus operandi which will allow the works to occur whilst ensuring that both access and parking availability is preserved. In fact, the contractor was instructed to work on a block at a time in order to keep parking losses to an absolute minimum. The traffic management plan was discussed and agreed upon as well.
Even though the imminent works focus on St Paul's street, the resurfacing of adjacent streets such as St Nicholas Street, Old Hospital Street, and North street were also discussed.
All the details will be published in the coming days through a press conference. Residents or shop owners in the streets mentioned above should inform the Valletta Local Council through a written note if they think they will be affected by the said works so that due consideration is taken about each case.
