1.        Background

The Maltese Government has invested heavily in the transport sector along the years, including moving towards more efficient transport infrastructure and sustainable transport modes. In line with this, within the framework of the CIVITAS DESTINATIONS Project (September 2016 - May 2021), which sought to integrate sustainable tourism and mobility strategies in six European island locations, the Valletta Region started to develop a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). The Valletta Region is made up of the Northern Harbour and Southern Harbour Regions and thus incorporates the localities of Birgu, Birkirkara, Bormla, Fgura, Floriana, Gżira, Ħamrun, Isla, Kalkara, Luqa, Marsa, Msida, Paola, Pembroke, Pieta, Qormi, San Ġiljan, San Ġwann, Sliema, Santa Luċija, Santa Venera, Swieqi, Ta’ Xbiex, Tarxien, Valletta, Xgħajra and Żabbar.

​Phase I of this project included stakeholder engagement through which the transport challenges were identified and a set of measures were developed. Following extensive consultation with the local councils concerned, inter-governmental entities and stakeholders, the second phase was initiated where the drafted measures are revisited following the feedback received and new data and studies that have now become available. The public is now being invited to submit feedback on the measures being proposed.

This exercise forms part of a larger project where a SUMP will be developed for each of the remaining Regions in Malta and Gozo. The SUMP for the Valletta Region carries a 31st December 2022 deadline, linked to Milestone 2.4 under Malta’s Recovery and Resilience Plan (Reform C2-R3: Expediting the finalisation and implementation of a SUMP for the Valletta Region).
