Metro reblocking to continue

The weekend road reblocking and road repair in the metropolis will continue following the three-month moratorium imposed by the Metro Manila Development Authority last holiday season.

The MMDA gave the Department of Public Works and Highways-National Capital Region the go signal to proceed with the road works beginning Jan. 25.

The road works will be along the southbound lanes of Circumferential Road 5 (C-5 Road) before Julia Vargas Street, C-5 Road fronting SM Aura, Epifanio de los Santos Avenue fronting Home Depot to Kaingin Road and EDSA after Lagarian Creek to Ermin Garcia; and northbound land of Pureza Street and Ramon Magsaysay Boulevard Bridge. 

The MMDA also announced that Maynilad and Globe Telecoms would be conducting restoration and concreting works along Mindanao Avenue from Socorro Street to Mindanao Avenue, West Avenue Baler Street to Examiner Street, and Commonwealth Avenue corner Soliven. 

MMDA general manager Jose Arturo Garcia Jr. assured that all affected roads would be fully passable by 5 a.m. on Monday.

The DPWH-NCR is conducting the road works and repair in the metropolis for maintenance purposes.

In November, the MMDA imposed a three-month moratorium on road diggings and excavations in the National Capital Region in anticipation of the heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic during the holiday travel rush.

The MMDA has annually been imposing the moratorium since 2008.
