This Is How Imsida Will Look Like

Infrastructure Malta has introduced the transformative Msida Creek Project, a significant road development venture that also encompasses a 10-year operational and maintenance phase. 

This initiative focuses on redesigning and reconstructing the key road network between Msida and Ta’ Xbiex, aiming to ease traffic congestion while promoting more sustainable urban spaces. 

With 60% of the area dedicated to open public spaces, the project places emphasis on pedestrian-friendly environments and eco-friendliness. It incorporates provisions for alternative transportation modes, as well as a covered communal parking area adorned with solar panels. 

Beyond road reconstruction, the project incorporates a new seawater channel to combat flooding, enhances public transportation links, and incorporates eco-conscious features, such as over 5,200 square meters of landscaped gardens.

Infrastructure Malta’s Msida Creek Project marks a significant advancement in the nation’s road infrastructure. Spanning a decade of operations and maintenance, the project reimagines the arterial road network from Msida to Ta’ Xbiex, focusing on enhancing traffic flow and urban livability. 

A primary goal is addressing traffic light congestion that has impeded smooth commuting. By allocating 60% of the project space to open public areas, the endeavor prioritizes pedestrian comfort and a greener urban environment. 

Aligned with Malta’s sustainability objectives, the project integrates provisions for alternative transportation, introduces secure communal parking equipped with solar panels, and introduces a vital seawater channel to mitigate flooding. Augmented public transport connectivity and the integration of sustainable design elements, including extensive green spaces, further underscore the project’s holistic approach to urban improvement.

The Msida Creek Project announcement has been met with enthusiasm by Maltese residents who recognize its potential to alleviate long-standing traffic challenges and enrich the overall urban landscape. 

However, their optimism is balanced by a plea for effective traffic control and management throughout the project’s implementation. Past instances of prolonged road maintenance and construction undertakings have left commuters and residents contending with disruptions that have occasionally escalated into protests.

They’re even on track for a remarkable quintuple crown for the first time.

Jokovic’s three early goals and Younger’s contributions helped secure the win. San Ġiljan led throughout the match, with Sliema catching up three times. 

Despite a tense first session, San Ġiljan maintained a slight lead.

The second session saw fewer goals due to rushed shots, and the woodwork saved San Ġiljan from a potential goal. 

Jokovic’s goal increased their lead, but Sliema fought back. Younger’s goal reestablished the lead before halftime. The match remained closely contested, even when Sliema had advantages.

Sliema made a comeback in the third session, but San Ġiljan stayed ahead. In the final quarter, despite Sliema’s efforts, San Ġiljan’s defense held strong. Goals from Nikolai Zammit and Younger secured a four-goal lead, ending the match 12-9.

Maltese Cross Features In Netflix Series 'At Home With The Furys'

The recently released ‘At Home With The Furys’, which details heavyweight champion Tyson Fury’s retirement from boxing, featured a familiar cameo for us Maltese.

During episode 7, which has Tyson Fury and his wife on vacation in Cannes France, the Maltese cross features for a brief moment as a flag flows in the air on the boat they are on. 

The flag appears behind the couple as they enjoy some food and drink together. 

Meanwhile, the series itself was massively praised by critics for its depiction on mental health, as it showed the boxer’s day to day struggles. 

This is due to Fury being diagnosed with bipolar back in 2017, with the athlete struggling with depression, anxiety and substance abuse with alcohol and cocaine. 

The nine-episode reality series, released earlier this week, follows the heavyweight world champion as he retires from boxing and embraces family life.
