GRTU takes Rabat (Malta) Mayor to Court—Court issues injunction against Rabat Council

The GRTU has filed a Warrant of Prohibitory Injunction in which it asked the Court to provisionally prohibit the Rabat Local Council and the Malta Transport Authority from implementing a new traffic management system in Parish Square, Rabat. 

The new traffic management system will prohibit traffic which entered the square via St. Rita street and Triq il-Kullegg, to go through St Paul Str towards the Roman Villa. The Business Community feels that such a diversion will cause the locality to be split into two thus causing detrimental and prejudicial financial losses through loss of business.During meetings held with the Rabat Local Council, the GRTU and the Rabat Business Community proposed the introduction of a traffic light system, similar to that utilised in several European historic centres in order to alleviate potential congestion. The Rabat Local Council however recently informed the GRTU that it had discarded this proposal.The First Court, Civil Court provisionally upheld the GRTU's request pending a Court hearing being scheduled in the forthcoming weeks.
