Infrastructure Malta is advising commuters to steer clear of St Andrew Road, situated between Pembroke and Swieqi, in the upcoming months due to extensive infrastructure works scheduled until February of the following year.
Two “hairpin” turns near the Luxol football ground are being constructed to alleviate traffic congestion from Swieqi.
These hairpin turns will replace the existing traffic lights, with the addition of a pedestrian crossing on the road. This alteration will also provide drivers with a more direct route, eliminating the need to travel to the end of the road to make a turn.
As the project advances, traffic is being redirected through an alternative route via Pembroke. To address existing and potential traffic concerns during this period, Falzon urged the public to explore alternative routes, including those in Burmarrad and it-Telgha t’ Alla u Ommu.
