Engineering Equipment, Inc. (EEI), the contractor of the Skyway 3 work site along A. Bonifacio in Quezon City, is set to expand its worksite from 7th Avenue to Balintawak, following the completion of the repair and restoration work undertaken at the same site by Maynilad Water Services, Inc. EEI’s worksite currently occupies the road median and intends to use the inner travel lane on both sides of the road.
Citra Central Expressway Corp. (CCEC), the proponent of the Skyway Project, expects slower traffic flow along A. Bonifacio where the existing three standard lanes have to be narrowed or tapered during the Skyway construction. Motorists are advised to avoid the said stretch of A. Bonifacio during peak traffic hours and use the alternate routes posted on signboards around the Skyway worksite.
To ensure the safety of the motorists and the public in general, CCEC and EEI are closely coordinating with the traffic and safety authorities of Quezon City and the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA). They appealed for public understanding and cooperation. Traffic and safety devices were installed and adequate number of traffic enforcers were deployed around the construction area to keep the public safe and traffic flow manageable.
The Skyway Stage 3 project is a 14.8-kilometer elevated expressway that will connect South Luzon Expressway with North Luzon Expressway from Buendia in Makati City to Balintawak, Quezon City. The project aims to decongest traffic on Metro Manila’s major thoroughfares like EDSA, C5 and Central Manila.
