HEAVY traffic is expected this weekend as seven major roads in the
Metro Manila are repaired.
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said on Friday the reblocking will cover roads in the cities of Mandaluyong, Quezon, Pasay, and Caloocan.
The reblocking started on Friday and will end Monday, July 1.
The roads to be repaired:
EDSA from Reliance St. to Libertad St. (northbound lane), Mandaluyong City; Along EDSA – A. De Jesus U-Turn Slot before J. Mariano St. (southbound lane 3),
Caloocan City; along Edsa between G. De Jesus St. and Malvar St. (NB),
EDSA from Malibay Bridge to C. Jose St. (NB, 5th lane),
Pasay City; along EDSA from Seminary Road to Rena Road (NB, 5th lane), Quezon City; along EDSA from Kaingin Road to Dario Bridge 1 (SB, 3rd lane), Quezon City.
Along Commonwealth Ave., the reblocking would be conducted from North Susana to Luzon Ave. (SB, 3rd lane).
The road reblocking and repair are on top of the drainage improvement projects of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
The DPWH vowed to hasten the drainage improvement and road repair to finish them before the rains come.
The MMDA has blamed the unfinished projects of DPWH for the sudden flooding in several areas in Metro Manila during heavy rains.
