TEN T Project – Triq Dicembru 13 to Menqa Roundabout Marsa

The GRTU would like to thank Transport Malta for a fruitful presentation held at Transport Malta Offices on Tuesday 22nd November 2011 informing all concerned with the phasing and the traffic management for the Triq Dicembru 13 to Menqa Roundabout Marsa Ten T Project commencing shortly.

 

GRTU on behalf of all stakeholders concerned informed that it continues to support the projects being carried out but would like to bring to the attention of the Authority their concerns and what the GRTU is proposing on their behalf;

Road works in Triq Patri Felicjan Bilocca, Marsa

  • GRTU requests Transport Malta to re-consider the decision to commence the imminent road works scheduled for the above road and postpone the commencement date by a month till Monday 26th December 2011.
  • The planned road works and restriction to one-way traffic will seriously impinge on the logistics of the three to four daily container and trailer loads servicing the business community.
  • One must also take into consideration the concurrent exit on a daily basis of many heavy vehicles distributing goods to vari-

ous outlets around  Malta and Gozo with deadlines, many of which are perishable goods and need to be refrigerated immediately not to break the chill chain.

Due to the festive season ahead these retailers are also responsible for the delivery of thousands of pre-ordered Christmas hampers and during the coming month these are expecting thousands of customers who purchase pre-packed or customised Christmas hampers from their premises which is open on a daily basis, including weekends.

While GRTU as agreed during the meeting held on Tuesday 22nd November 2011 offered its full support once the project commences, it urged Transport Malta to take into consideration our concerns and that works will be postponed by one month as requested.
