The landscaped roundabout, with two carriageways, will permit uninterrupted traffic flow from Gzira to Sliema and vice versa and facilitate access to Manoel Island. This proposed junction was a condition imposed by Transport Malta in the master plan for the Manoel Island project approved in 2021. The new traffic infrastructure also foresees the removal of part of the existing central strip, the introduction of two carriageways, the widening of public pavements, six zebra crossings and a new bridge to connect Manoel Island to the mainland. KARL AZZOPARDI GOVERNMENT has put forward legal amendments to protect ar- tistic expression from spurious criminal complaints based on laws that make it illegal to utter insults and threats. The two amendments will intro- duce a new proviso in the Crimi- nal Code and the Electronic Com- munications Act to clarify that the law "shall not hinder artistic, satirical or comic expression".
