An allnighter road fixing: Safeguarding people’s safety

After yesterday’s tragic accident which left 28 year old Ajay dead in the light of day, workers from Infrastructure Malta fulfilled their duty to safeguard the people’s safety in Triq Aldo Moro, Marsa.

They went the extra mile and spent an allnighter fixing all the necessary damages to ensure that people woke up this morning and were on their way to work or school in the safest manner possible.

By this morning all 10 lanes of this main arterial route were open.

Last fixes were resumed at 10am this morning ensuring that the morning rush has faded and commuters could travel safely and with the least traffic impact possible.

Immediately after the accident, Infrastructure Malta contractors were dispatched to replace the damaged crash barriers and light poles. Works started yesterday evening as soon as the police and magisterial inquiries on site were concluded and the vehicles involved were towed away. Cleansing and Maintenance Division workers also helped with the clean up, while Enemalta technicians intervened to reconnect the new light poles.

The swift works left drivers impressed, with many taking to social media to commend the authorities’ level of preparedness to tackle emergencies in Malta’s principal roads. This would not have been possible without prior planning for such eventualities, including the stocking of spare barriers, light poles and other equipment, which normally takes weeks to import into the Island, as well as the deployment of the required road workers and other technicians at such short notice.
