METROPOLITAN Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Romando Artes said the flow of traffic on Edsa-Kamuning service road is “still manageable” even after the closure of the southbound portion of the Edsa-Timog flyover to pave the way for road repair works which the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) closed the flyover last June 25.
It is said that the road works will be in effect for 30 days and bound to end near the 3rd- to the last week of July if there will be hindrances.
The MMDA is stationed traffic enforcers to help traffic flow and guide vehicles and motorists going southbound , they may turn right at either Mother Ignacia Ave., Panay Ave., Scout Albano, or Scout Borromeo.
“We have deployed around 100 traffic personnel to manage the traffic flow along Edsa,” Artes said, adding the agency is also being assisted by the Quezon city government.
The agency said around 140, 000 vehicles passing through the flyover daily will be affected by the closure and would intensify clearing operations from road obstructions and illegally parked vehicles to ensure that traffic flow will remain manageable.
