Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary Rogelio L. Singson instructed the DPWH National Capital Region Office including Quezon City Second and Metro Manila Second District Engineering Offices to closely monitor activities of the contractor undertaking the concrete reblocking at some portions of EDSA and C-5 Road starting at 10 PM tonight, October 30, 2015.
Singson said that post-activity cleanup through proper disposal of construction debris has to be undertaken immediately to minimize traffic disruption.
Those that will undergo reblocking on EDSA include some southbound lanes between Estrella Street to Senator Gil Puyat Avenue (Buendia) in Makati City and first lane from sidewalk (Service Road) between Sct. Borromeo and Timog Avenue; and the northbound lane between Aurora Boulevard and K-10 Street specifically the first lane from sidewalk.
On C-5 Road, the affected area would be the northbound innermost lane between SM Warehouse to FR Cement going to Lanuza Street.
Affected road lanes will be opened again to traffic at 5 AM Monday, November 2, 2015.
Meanwhile, DPWH Lakbay Alalay personnel were deployed on strategic locations of national highway to assist travellers and respond to any road emergency situation as people flock to the private and public cemeteries in Metro Manila and the provinces to pay their respects to their dearly departed.
