Heads Up, Motorists: Part of Aurora Boulevard to Be Closed Nightly for One Week
But hey, at least the LRT-2 is getting new escalators!
(SPOT.ph) We all know Cubao is pretty much an entire city all on its own. So if you're heading for a night out at the transportation-slash-shopping-slash-eating hub anytime soon, or you live somewhere nearby, then heads up! A portion of the Aurora Boulevard near the Light Rail Transit Line 2 Cubao station will be closed starting at 12:01 a.m. until 5 a.m. every night from January 25 to February 1.
The affected portion will be between Oxford Street and Imperial Street. A big truck and a mobile crane will be in the area to transport 11 escalators for the Light Rail Transit Line 2 (LRT-2) Cubao station, according to a statement of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority. "Gagawin tuwing gabi ang paglilipat para iwas-aberya," noted the advisory.
Motorists heading towards Manila are advised to turn right at Yale Street or Oxford Street, left at Columbia, and left again at either Imperial Street or West Point to get back on Aurora Boulevard.
