The underpass leading to Gzira and Carpark 10 from the University of Malta will be finally re-opening next week. 150 parking spaces will be accessible as from next week as well as a key tunnel for cyclists and pedestrians to access university.
“Day in and day out students embark as early as possible in order to successfully park within the grounds of the University of Malta, and most likely than not fail in doing so. From next week, previous underpass users can make use again of the underpass that leads to Gzira and vice versa, with a more accessible and safe environment for both car users and those who cycle or walk to and from,” student-based University organisation Pulse said in a statement.
This was announced just weeks after Minister for Transport Dr. Ian Borg announced the Kappara Junction Project had reached its final phase.
From next week, University students can make use again of the underpass that leads to Gzira and vice versa, with a more accessible and safe environment for both car users and those who cycle or walk.
New safety precautions like the installation of new lights in the tunnel have been undertaken for the reopening.
With the scholastic year starting months ago, and the issue of not enough parking for students arising as usual, many students were frustrated as 150 less parking spots were available this year.
However, with the reopening of the tunnel, the frustration should now be lessened to a degree.
