The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced that the southbound portion of Roxas Boulevard near Libertad Pumping Station in Pasay City is already accessible to motorists after it was partially closed to vehicular traffic for rehabilitation works.
In his report to Secretary Roger G. Mercado and Senior Undersecretary Rafael C. Yabut, DPWH National Capital Region (DPWH-NCR) Director Nomer Abel P. Canlas said vehicles with the exception of trucks are now allowed to pass on the southbound direction of Roxas Boulevard from V. Sotto to Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) after completing works for the 54.9 linear meter replacement of damaged old Libertad box culvert or drainage main structure and dilapidated road pavement.
The improved road pavement of Roxas Boulevard southbound direction will facilitate safer and smoother movement of people, goods, and services.
Meanwhile, the new drainage main box culvert will allow a more efficient water flow to Libertad Pumping Station, thus alleviating the flooding occurrence in Pasay City and nearby area of Makati City.
Similar rehabilitation works will be undertaken by DPWH South Manila District Engineering Office on the northbound direction of Roxas Boulevard, initially doing the repair works on the first two (2) lanes.
Round-the-clock work will be observed to expedite project completion.
Motorists are then advised to use the northbound service road or other possible alternate routes.
