Tourists barely make flight: buses diverted due to unannounced roadworks

Tourists barely make flight: buses diverted due to unannounced roadworks
May 24 2023 Share

Taking to social media, independent electoral candidate Arnold Cassola shared the complaints he received by tourists which revealed that they barely made their flights due to unplanned roadworks. 

‘Simply time of the Flintstones’ said Cassola, likening the situation to the prehistoric animated show. 

‘Contacted by a group of tourists: “Hi, me and a group of travellers tried to reach the airport by bus, but all the buses turn before reaching the airport more than a km away and so we had to run to not miss our flights. It’s a sham”. You should be ashamed of yourselves’ wrote Cassola. 

Times of Malta confirmed with a Malta Public Transport spokesperson that routes 71, 72, 73, X3, X4, 218, 117, X1, X2 and 135 could not access Malta International Airport late on Tuesday afternoon. 

The MPT were not aware of the roadworks, resulting in six buses getting stuck on Triq il-Kunsill tal-Ewropa. 

The company aided the officials on site to move buses through concrete bollards partly blocking the road, with tourists walking through the rubbled roads.
