Heads Up: Closure of Main EDSA Intersection Is Scheduled This Weekend
...and the next.
(SPOT.ph) The weekend offers practically no respite from the terrible weekday traffic. But if you did have plans of going out, then you may want to plan your routes accordingly. The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority announced yesterday repairs on a main water valve along EDSA corner Shaw Boulevard from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. every night for the next two weekends, from June 21 to 23, and again on June 28 to 30.
The Manila Water Company, Inc. is set to repair a defective mainline butterfly valve on the outer southbound lane of the intersection. This is to address the worsening lack of water supplied to the Metro, according to a report by Philstar.
"The affected area is a critical intersection where drop-off and pick-up points for city buses are located along EDSA," Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Traffic Chief Bong Nebrija told Philstar.
