Too many road works are taking place at the same time, former Prime Minister Alfred Sant writes today.

In a post on Facebook, the Labour MEP said that this is causing endless frustration as people get stuck in traffic jams.

The Pieta area has been mentioned in recent times but there are many other arteries that are affected, he said.

Worse than this, there are times when projects get started but stop midway through without any explanation.

It is wrong if whoever is leading such projects thinks that people will forget once the projects are completed, sometimes taking triple the time that is originally estimated.

This way of thinking does not show respect to the citizens, he said.
