DPWH CONSIDERS ONE-WAY TRAFFIC AT KENNON ROAD

Top  

 
 

The Department of Public Works and Highways considers implementing one-way traffic flow at Kennon Road, a scenic highway from Rosario, La Union to mountain city of Baguio this Holy Week.

Secretary Rogelio L. Singson instructed DPWH Cordillera Administrative Region (DPWH-CAR) Director Edilberto Carrabacan to conduct traffic study that will only allow light vehicles to use Kennon Road in going up to Baguio City this coming summer season particularly during the Holy Week.

Singson said “implementing one-way traffic at Kennon Road will prevent the re-occurrence of severe vehicular congestion starting from the junction of Kennon Road and Manila North Road in Rosario, La Union experienced last December 2014 as travelers are expected to trek Baguio City for the summer break on Holy Week”.

Aside from possibly solving crawling traffic problem due to some road repairs and maintenance works including the blocked lane by counter flowing vehicles, a one-way traffic flow at the 41-kilometer Kennon Road will lessen the occurrence of vehicular accidents as motorists negotiate the steep and winding climb up to Baguio.

Marcos Highway which is the other access road leading to Baguio City from Manila will remain open to two-way traffic especially as it is also the route travelled by public utility buses and trucks.

With the proposed one-way traffic at Kennon Road not yet implemented, Director Carrabacan warned motorists and the travelling public of the strict implementation of 10- ton limit at Kennon Road to safeguard the weak bridge at Camp 5.

Trucks loaded with vegetables, sand and gravel from La Union to Baguio and vice versa and from Camp 4 going up to Baguio and vice versa are restricted at Kennon Road and instead advised to take the Marcos Highway route.

DPWH will however allow sand and gravel concessionaires from Baguio City that derive their aggregates from Camp 6 to take the route because they are not passing the Camp 5 Bridge.

The road rehabilitation works involving concreting of pavement and drainage improvement at Dimasalang Street in Sta Cruz and Sampaloc, Manila has started.

According to DPWH-North Manila District Engineer Medel Chua, the construction area covers some Dimasalang road sections spanning V.G. Cruz, Cristobal, A. Maceda, Blumentritt, Becerra and Maria Clara Streets.

Medel also said that construction period will take two (2) months and is targetted for completion on April 17, 2015 or within 60 calendar days.

To minimize traffic snarl as a result of lane reduction, DPWH has divided the project implementation into two (2) stages.

Stage 1 involves the reconstruction of concrete pavement at southbound inner lane within the area of District 3 - Sta. Cruz side from Dimasalang bridge to the vicinity of Maria Clara Street.

It also includes concreting works at northbound outerlane from V. G. Cruz to Cristobal and at the one-way road portion of Blumentritt, all within the area of District 4 – Sampaloc side. Stage 1 is expected to be completed within the first 30 calendar days.

Stage 2 which will commence upon completion of Stage 1 has similar project limits in the first stage but covers the other road lane with drainage improvement and repair of reinforced concrete manholes.

Upon instruction of Secretary Rogelio L. Singson, ten (10) MMDA-trained traffic aides with two-way radio communication will be employed by the contractor to augment existing Traffic Enforcers of MMDA and Manila City Hall.

Manning the Dimasalang corner Maceda are four (4) traffic aides while two (2) traffic aides each are assigned at Dimasalang at the corner of Maria Clara, A.H. Lacson, and Aurora Boulevard.

Top  

 
 



Construction activities for the 880 lineal meters Senator Gil Puyat Avenue/Makati Avenue – Paseo de Roxas Vehicle Underpass Project is set to start this April.

Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio L. Singson said that civil works will immediately start after the completion of pre-construction activities by March.

“As early as now, I appeal for the understanding of the motorists and commuters on any inconvenience the project may cause as I have directed the contractor to maximize project time schedule. The Department is also coordinating with the MMDA and the Makati officials for the traffic management within the vicinity,” said Singson.

The project, approved by President Benigno Aquino III and NEDA Board, aims to address traffic congestion within Makati Central Business District and its surrounding areas.

Costing P1.27 Billion, the underpass with 22 months construction duration is expected to provide uninterrupted traffic flow along Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue passing through Makati Ave. and Paseo de Roxas Ave. by January 2017.

The project involves the construction of a four (4) – lane, (2-3.5 meters each direction) divided vehicle underpass along inner most lanes of Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue passing through Makati Avenue and Paseo de Roxas intersections including a covered tunnel portion of about 570 meters.
