The road safety audit for a proposed mixed-use development in Triq il-Kbira, Mellieha was requested by Transport Malta. The Scheme proposed a mix of commercial outlets, dwellings units and basement garages. Access to the basement garages is off the main road through Mellieħa town centre. This road is a 2-lane single carriageway with parallel on-street parking along the kerb opposite the Scheme egress.

Traffic data was collected with the help of an Automatic Traffic Counter. The ATC provided data on vehicle flows, vehicles types and speeds.

The road safety audit took note of driver visibility and vehicle swept paths at the Scheme egress. Safety issues were highlighted and suggestions put forward to minimise impacts on road safety. These included modifications to the egress geometry and kerb alignment, provision of signage and drop kerbs and the removal of some on-street parking.
