The Department of Public Works and Highways – National Capital Region (DPWH-NCR) will undertake road reblocking and repair starting 10 p.m. Friday August 7, 2015 along C-5 Road in Pasig City.
DPWH-NCR has secured clearance from Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to undertake concrete reblocking at the innermost lane north bound direction of C-5 Road from between Petron Gas Station going to Lanuza Street.
Motorists are advised of the expected traffic slowdown and build-up brought about by the reduction in road lane. Repair works will be completed and road lane will be passable by 5 a.m. Monday, August 10, 2015.
Meanwhile, Secretary Rogelio L. Singson has directed NCR Director Reynaldo G. Tagudando to direct the contractor Northern Builders of the Blumentritt interceptor to deploy more resources and complete the project before October.
Singson ordered Tagudando that as soon as Maynilad completes realigning its seven-foot-tall water pipeline along Juan Luna Street and Hermosa Street in Tondo, Manila, starting Monday, August 10, 2015 which will take almost 5 days to complete, the contractor has to mobilize all working equipment and personnel to finish the project soonest.
The P560-million Blumentritt floodwater interceptor project which has an overall accomplishment of 82.57 percent to date alongside with the MMDA and LGUs efforts to upgrade pumping stations, unclog drainage, and clear waterways of informal settlers are expected to provide an improvement to the perennial flooding problem in Metro Manila.
