ABS-CBN correspondent Alvin Elchico reports that a traffic jam has started to build up in the streets connected to Osmeña highway in Makati city since May 21 due to the First Philippine Industrial Corp's (FPIC) construction of a fuel pipeline segment.
According to the report, "a portion of the Osmeña service road has been closed from May 21 to mid-July" to allow FPIC to connect a new segment of the fuel pipeline to replace a defective part that was fixed a few years ago. The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has asked FPIC to speed up its repairs as the agency expects the traffic situation to worsen in the area when school opens in the first week of June.
"Since a portion of the Osmena service road is now closed to traffic, the MMDA advises motorists to take inside streets of Lacuna, Apolinario, Belarmino, before getting out again on the service road or Magallanes or EDSA," the report said.
