Arson not cause for bendy buses fires

Article By: news

Bendy buses will not return to Maltese routes, the Minister for Transport said this morning, citing mainly safety and traffic congestion as the main reasons for this decision.

He also revealed that arson was not the cause of three fires on bendy buses after a technical report analysed the cause of the fires.

Talking on One TV breakfast, the Minister said that he will publish parts of the technical report once the Attorney General provides the requested clearance.

Referring to traffic congestion, the Minister said that Transport Malta will soon be implementing measures which are intended to ease the traffic flow in certain areas which are notoriously prone to traffic jams. Among these would be the redesign and rebuilding of the Addolorata Cemetry junction in Marsa.
