MALTA | Urban Transport Compilation

Updated | Tram services among alternative transport means being studied

Government seeking studies on ‘best options analysis and cost benefit analysis’ of a tramline

The government has launched a call for offers for studies that include ‘best options analysis and cost benefit analysis’ on the possibility of a tramline in Malta.

The best offer for the study will be chosen in the coming days, and will examine the options and costs of designing, developing and operating a tram service on the island.

Speaking at an event to mark European Mobility Work, Transport Minister Joe Mizzi said Transport Malta and its stakeholders will be benefitting from €1.9 million in EU funds to finance urban mobility plans in Valletta.

Mizzi also announced that the government will be launching a call for offers – to grant a concession – to interested parties who want to take part in a car-sharing scheme on a national level.

“The concession is open to transport operators and private companies to invest and operate the service on a national level,” Mizzi said. “Basically, the fleet of vehicles will be granted exclusive parking in public car parks. The service must be offered as soon as possible.”

Transport Malta also plans on offering a concessions for bicycle sharing and e-bike sharing services. The service must be spread all over the island.

In a reaction to the minister’s statements, the Nationalist Party said opposition leader Simon Busuttil had already recommended a tram system to alleviate the traffic problem and to provide a direct link between Malta and Gozo.

The PN said it was pleased to see the government’s reaction but noted it took Mizzi three years of being stuck in ‘a traffic jam of ideas’ to commission a study on the viability of a tram system.

Once again, the PN said, the opposition had shown it was the only party with a vision for the country and able to implement that vision.

Options for a mass transport system around Valletta’s two harbours will be analysed in a study the government is expected to commission shortly.

Quote:
...
The report identified two potential routes, which would have required a capital investment of €206 million to €325 million and an annual operating cost of €7.5 million. Based on the Halcrow findings, then transport minister Austin Gatt shunned the tram option and the government shifted its focus to revamping the bus service, which later turned out to be a massive failure.
...

Route 1


Route 2

So, what's the outcome of this?
Malta badly needs better public transport. For now, there are only buses, while it used to have trams and trains. Quite a pity, it's definitely blocking the development of the island that way. There's heavy traffic jams all around and the urban area is so densely packed, it's amazing there's merely road infrastructure.

And btw, there's a Malta project thread missing at the City/Metro Compilations forum.
