dc.description.abstractIn 2010, Transport Malta (2010) amalgamated the previous Malta Transport Authority, Civil Aviation Authority and the Malta Maritime Authority into a single regulator that is responsible for all the modes of transport in Malta. The role of Transport Malta is to plan and provide sustainable, high quality, safe, integrated and efficient transport service that will meet the travelling needs of commuters and the transport requirements for the movement of goods within the national framework. As the Authority is responsible for all the modes of transport, harmonisation between the directorates needed to be strengthened. Following an extensive Gap Analysis exercise across Transport Malta directorates to take stock of all the spatial data stored at the various directorates within Transport Malta and also to catalogue the operational systems, between 2011 and 2012, the Authority sought the means to justify the budget required to implement the platform required. A GIS Platform would consolidate operations within the directorates and facilitate transportation planning decisions in providing one common source to integrate, visualise and share spatial data. In view of this, a proposal was submitted to implement STREETS project (2016) in collaboration with academia and also Italian partners under the Italia – Malta 2007-2013 programme (Figure 1). This proposal was accepted as a STRATEGIC PROJECT under the Italia-Malta Programme.en_GB
