Certain roads will be closed at night between Saturday and Wednesday for steel girders for the Kappara junction to be transported and welded onto the structure, Transport Malta has announced.

The remaining eight steel girders that will support the bridge deck and that will be placed throughout the whole extent of the flyover, will be transported from Marsa to Kappara at night on Saturday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

The trailers transporting the girders will leave Dock 7 in Marsa at 7:30pm, driving on the right side of the road through Triq il-Labour, Triq Aldo Moro, Marsa-Ħamrun bypass, Santa Venera tunnels, Triq Reġjonali and Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli.

The trailers will be driving on the right since it is easier to manoeuvre, Transport Malta said, adding that these roads will be closed in segments to allow drivers to drive through alternative routes.

On Sunday night, workers will be welding the girders on site. For this reason, Transport Malta said access to Kappara is expected to be closed between 9:00pm until early morning during the nights between Saturday and Wednesday.
