As the massive Marsa Junction Flyover project gets closer to completion, with the first flyover of seven being inaugurated during a ceremony last Friday, Joseph Muscat took the time this morning to discuss the larger meaning of the project during an interview with ONE radio.
Speaking about the infrastructure as well as the energy sector, Muscat referred to the importance of the Marsa project.
“It makes a difference,” he said. “Primarily for the people of the south. That is the busiest junction in the country.”
He went on to praise the speed with which the work is being done and reiterated his government’s pledge to redo every road in Malta during this legislature.
“We are continuing with our €700 million project to redo all the roads in the country. Apart from this €700 million, we have other similar projects like this one, worth €70 million,” he said in reference to the Marsa project.
“We are preparing the country for the future, and that is an important point. I believe this is a game-changer for the country,” he said, reminding listeners that this was just the first part of the project and that the rest of the flyovers would be finished next year.
The unveiling of the road included a spectacle that featured vintage cars driving over the virgin flyover.
One person even had a bit of fun with footage from the unveiling and created a faux-flashback that is hilariously believable.
