the only problem might be that if parking becomes easier more people will be attracted to Sliema............and the driving will become even crazier

Building more roads encourages more cars eh - leaving roads as they are discourages cars eh - head in the sand if you ask me.

Any road/car parking enhancement is surely to be applauded.

You are both correct in what you say, I think the answer is to completely avoid Sliema at all times unless arriving or departing by boat, that is always the most pleasant way to visit Sliema in my opinion not that we go over that much it's much too busy and built up these days for our liking.

I've never had the delight of travelling by boat to Sliema from Siggiewi - must try it during the next storms.

You would be better boating from Birkirkarra , down Valley Road . round the Msida roundabout and into Msida Creek. and on to Sliema.

Best to try punting from Qormi in a downpour, just catch the storm water as it shoots towards Marsa, navigate past the golf course and steer towards Marsa, cross Grand Harbour go through the breakwater, past St Elmo and you will be in Sliema in minutes, well most bits of you will be with any luck.
