Hal Qormi Road upgrade completed

Infrastructure Malta completed a €1 million upgrade of Hal Qormi Road, between Qormi and Hamrun, to improve its efficiency and safety to all road users.  

Through this project, Infrastructure Malta widened Hal Qormi Road to four lanes and installed a safer system of concrete crash barriers, to reduce the risk of cross-median collisions and other accident consequences. The new road design improves the approach and exit lanes linking it to the two roundabout junctions at its ends.

The agency’s contractors rebuilt the road’s pavements and added a new one in an area that did not previously have a safe pedestrian access. Overhead electricity, Internet and telecommunication wires in this road were replaced with underground cables.   

This upgrade also included a new roundabout in It-Tigrija Street, to improve access to the adjacent bus terminus and park and ride facilities.
