Massive traffic to and from airport due to lane closure

A lane closure in Triq il-Kunsil tal-Ewropa in the direction of Marsa has caused massive traffic jams as people convene to their respective early morning and daily duties. 

Heavy traffic has formed to and from the airport area, with the site still undergoing construction for the bypass being built in the area. 

Try to avoid using the road if in a rush and if not completely necessary. Social media comments on pages like Maltese Roads Traffic Updates have touted waiting times of up to an hour, urging others to avoid the area and with some even calling for the now common calls for traffic management.

Protest by Nationalist Party with theme 'You deserve better', attended by thousands

The Nationalist Party organized a protest with the theme “You deserve better,” which was attended by thousands. PN Leader Bernard Grech expressed his gratitude to the attendees for making their voices heard for the second time that week in Valletta.

During his speech, the Leader of Opposition, Bernard Grech, spoke about the negative trend of corruption and stealing from public funds, stating that it has gone on for too long. He emphasized the importance of continuing to speak out because the people of Malta deserve better.

PN MP Adrian Delia also addressed the crowd, stating that the Maltese citizens have won back the three hospitals that were stolen from the public along with 4,000 million euros. He appealed to the government to retrieve the money given to Steward Healthcare and Vitals and return it to the people of Malta.

UHM Voice of the Workers President, Josef Vella, also spoke and appealed to the Maltese citizens to voice their opinions regarding recent national events. He emphasized that this fight against corruption is not a partisan issue but rather one that the country needs to win.

Finally, law student Michela Ann Bayliss appealed for a change in direction for the future of students and teens in Malta and Gozo.

Massive jellyfish carpet spotted at Golden Bay seabed

Local marine biologist Alan Deaden took to Facebook to share photos of what he called jellyfish carpets on the seabed at Golden Bay. 

The jellyfish covered marine landscape on the north-west coast of the Maltese islands forms part of the ‘ongoing swarm of mauve stingers laid during the calm weather experienced last December’, explained Deidun. 

Images show a purple-blue carpet stretching over vast distances beneath the waves. It is unclear whether this pattern will continue until this upcoming summer, with Deidun himself working to create more awareness about the marine fauna and how to deal with them given some of their species’ stings. 

Late last year and earlier this year, Deidun shared images of jellyfish populating the bays of the islands following the calm weather which befell Malta and Gozo.
