From 6 a.m. on Saturday, January 15th, The entire southbound lane of Roxas Boulevard will be closed to traffic to make way for a full repair of a damaged culvert in front of the Libertad Pumping Station in Pasay City.

The closure will cover the entire portion of the southbound lane HK Sun Plaza to the corner of Roxas Boulevard and EDSA.

In a virtual press conference on Wednesday, January 11th, Benhur Abalos emphasized the chairmanship the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) identified the need for immediate repair of the damaged box culvert, saying this would prevent a future worse scenario of major road damage along Roxas Boulevard due to a cave that could lead to a serious traffic accident.

“According to DPWH, the structure could be weakened due to the structural integrity of their project,” said Abalos.

The current situation is especially dangerous because heavy trucks regularly on the way and back to a large one on the Roxas Boulevard route Port in Manila are under way.

Mikunug Macud, district engineer for the DPWH South Manila District Engineering Office, said the closure and repairs would take 60 calendar days .

This means that drivers who regularly drive the route have to be content with alternative routes or drive as early as possible in order to avoid the monstrous traffic jams that are to be expected.

“Directional traffic signs are also being placed in strategic locations to better guide the public,” he said.

Engr. Neomie Recio, director of the MMDA Traffic Engineering Center, assured that the agency will use enforcers for traffic management in the region.

“After the closure, we will deploy additional traffic officers for the entire duration of the renovation. We will also implement a zipper-lane or counter-current regulation for light vehicles, but on a case-by-case basis, ”Recio explained Officials said the opening of a single lane zippered lane depends on the traffic situation on the north lane.

This means that there will be no zippered lane if the lane heading north of Roxas Boulevard is also congested.

Motorists will be notified of the opening of the zip lane through the deployment of MMDA personnel in the area.
