Muntinlupa, NGCP work on tilted tower

The local government of Muntinlupa City is coordinating with the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines for the restoration of the transmission firm’s tilted tower in Alabang after a residential fire there Wednesday.

Muntinlupa Public Information Officer Tez Navarro said the city’s Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office discussed the issue with NGCP’s officers to ensure the prompt restoration of the Biñan-Muntinlupa 230kV line.

MCDRRMO Operations and Warning Division chief Engineer Edward Arciaga urged the NGCP to make the tower upright as soon as possible as it poses a threat to motorists plying the South Luzon Expressway Alabang flyover and nearby residents.

Arciaga said MCDRRMO will assist NGCP in putting up a perimeter fence and securing the tower from informal settlers upon its restoration. As of Thursday, the SLEX Alabang Exit Northbound was still closed to motorists owing to the slanted tower.
