Roads up for repair


Road repair and reblocking resumed on three sections of Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) and five other roads in Metro Manila over the weekend, the Department of Pubic Works and Highways (DPWH) said yesterday.

DPWH-NCR Director Melvin Navarro said that repair works were undertaken starting noon Friday and would continue today and tomorrow.

Affected were southbound from Arayat Street to Ignacio Diaz, fourth lane from sidewalk in front of Francesca Tower to Scout Borromeo, and third lane from center island northbound from Vertis to Trinoma Mall.

Road works were also undertaken southbound of Nagtahan Bridge Service Road, from J. P. Laurel to Ampil Street; northbound of Batasan Road, from Commonwealth Avenue to Kalinisan Street; A. H.

At least a day of curing concrete meant that the affected road lanes will be closed till Sunday and will reopen at 5 a.m. on Monday.
