Founded in 2016, it became a registered foundation and voluntary organization in 2018. In Malta, there is a lack of consolidated information regarding speed limits. The information is fragmented (partly available in the Speed Management document) and much of what is implemented on the ground (by local councils) seems arbitrary and not based on any scientific/technical analysis. This leads to many wrongs with regard to speed management on the island, indirectly increasing the potential for accidents, based on over-speeding. This project aims at closing this information gap through the mapping of speed limits on primary roads. The resulting information can be used for a variety of purposes ranging from transport research, demand responsive transport planning, traffic data collection and vehicle tracking
Welcome to Project Aegle Foundation; a voluntary organisation with a simple but effective mission – to enhance the quality of life and environmental conditions through improved mobility. Here and now the Maltese Islands are facing the ever-growing problem of traffic congestion and parking shortages. The latter is linked to massive costs for the Maltese economy, healthcare, and well-being. The main aim of this foundation is to provide a platform where people from any social strata can share their knowledge and propose ideas and solutions that will result in better and improved mobility.
