Here we go again
An unusual vigorous road-marking exercise was seen in several strategic points in Malta in the last few days. Worn and faded lines suddenly got a long-overdue fresh coat of white and yellow paint, including road-markings close to Auberge de Castille in Valletta.
A number of main junctions, including the exit from the Santa Venera tunnels, also received a fresh layer of asphalt.
Such exercises often coincide with high-profile events and international visits, like the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and the Pope’s visit.
Some could not help wondering whether the enthusiastic road embellishment project had any connection with last night’s Notte Bianca event in Valletta or, more probably, the Euro Mediterranean 5+5 meeting in Malta the coming weekend. Or just coincidence perhaps?
