THE local government of Muntinlupa will implement a one-way traffic scheme at East Service Road not later than October 13 in a bid to address heavy traffic due to the construction of the Skyway extension project.
Muntinlupa Traffic Management Bureau chief Danidon Nolasco led a consultation meeting with representatives from San Miguel Corp. (SMC) Tollways, EEI, transport groups, and subdivisions and companies situated in East Service Road to discuss the traffic rerouting plan last September 30.
Nolasco said SMC Tollways anticipate at least 14 weeks to finish the construction of the extension project with the currently imposed stop and go traffic scheme. He added that construction period will be reduced by half if a one-way traffic scheme will be enforced.
Motorists are advised that a northbound one-way traffic route will be implemented at East Service Road from Alabang Viaduct going to Sucat Interchange on or before October 13, while, the West Service Road and Baybayin will remain two-way.
Representatives from business establishments located in the area agreed to the new rerouting plan and requested that the new traffic scheme be disseminated and implemented immediately.
EEI project manager Joe Ilagan said at least 41 columns will be erected for the Skyway Extension Project along East Service Road. The bored piles and columns will be situated in between the service road and expressway.
