MMDA opens Magallanes interchange southbound lane to all vehicles

Manila (10 November) -- Following a status and safety advice from the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has opened the southbound lane of the Magallanes Interchange to all kinds of vehicles early yesterday.

The interchange was previously closed due to safety concerns in relation to the diggings conducted by the First Philippine Industrial Corporation (FPIC) on the area.

In a letter addressed to MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino, DPWH Secretary Rogelio Singson recommended the opening of the southbound ramp of the interchange after compressive strength test results of the concrete core samples of the excavated portions under the wall foundation yielded positive results.

However, as a precautionary measure, heavy vehicles will only be allowed to pass through the inner (left) lane only pending full restoration of the excavated portions.

MMDA Officer-in-Charge Emerson Carlos said the agency has opened a satellite office right in front of the West Tower along Osmeņa Highway to ensure the smooth flow of traffic in the area.

Carlos said "Task Force Kaayusan", composed initially of forty two traffic enforcers, is directed to supervise and man the area on 24-hour basis until the situation normalizes.

"In addition to the task force, at least forty volunteers will also help our traffic personnel in ensuring the smooth flow of vehicles on the area. We have also put up directional signs and advisories along the area all the way to Quirino Avenue to inform motorists," Carlos added. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
