Creating a chain of easy and safe walkable/cyclable routes - Rabat to BuskettThere is plenty of amazing walking paths and beautiful places in Malta but unfortunately one has to take the car or bus to most of those places. The ideal would be to connect parks and recreational spots by creating walking/cycling-friendly allocated routes.
For example they are planting trees on the way from Rabat to Buskett but unfortunately there is no appropriate space for walking. Can you imagine this road being transformed into a marked route for pedestrians and cyclists? For me, right now, unfortunately it’s a bit of a challenge to choose this road because it feels dangerous with the cars. With the introduction of safe lanes I would definitely feel encouraged. Let’s put our focus on connecting these beautiful spots that will create a chain of easily walkable/cyclable routes.
My proposition is to connect Rabat/Mdina through Dingli to Buskett which is also highly popular with tourists. This would create less necessity for car and bus usage making this area less noisy and polluted. What are your ideas to make this route more accessible for pedestrians and cyclists? What other similar connections would you like to see?
