Abstract: Until the 1970s, the City of Valletta was the most important centre for the administrative, cultural and the commercial sector of Malta. From early morning, until late at night, for seven days a week, our capital was a vibrant hub of continuous activity. However, with the development and growth of our tourism industry, other localities, such as Sliema, Saint Julians, Bugibba, Qawra and Marsascala, were also attracting both locals and foreigners for their modern entertaining and commercial facilities, with the consequence that the importance of Valletta as the island’s main cultural and commercial centre, started to diminish. The increasing number of private vehicles meant that the Maltese could now travel to various destinations without the eleven o'clock curfew imposed by the public transport.
