The road linking the two southern towns of Żabbar and Żejtun has re-opened for traffic after major reconstruction works were completed a month ahead of schedule.

Known as Triq taċ-Ċawsli for the mulberry trees that were planted along its length, the road had to be rebuilt from scratch with an investment of €4 million.

The new road includes a segregated two-way cycling lane and was partially funded by the EU.

It was formally opened by Transport Minister Ian Borg and Prime Minister Joseph Muscat on Thursday evening.
