MMDA Monitors Traffic Situation Amid Timog Flyover Closure

To check the initial impact of the closure of the entire Timog Flyover southbound, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), together with representatives from the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), PNP Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG), and Inter-Agency Council for Traffic (I-ACT), today monitored the traffic situation along Edsa southbound.

The total closure of the bridge, which commenced on Saturday, June 25, is implemented to give way to its one-month repair.

MMDA Chairman Atty. Romando Artes said that based on initial assessment, the traffic situation on EDSA Kamuning service road is still manageable.

"There are four identified alternate routes for motorists. Vehicles coming from EDSA southbound may turn right at either Mother Ignacia Avenue, Panay Avenue, Scout Albano, or Scout Borromeo. Motorcycle riders and bikers are likewise urged to use these alternate routes for their safety," said Artes.

Artes added the agency deployed additional personnel to manage traffic in the affected areas.

"Around 100 additional enforcers have been deployed to better manage traffic along Edsa. We will be assisted by the PNP-HPG as well as the local government unit of Quezon City at the inner roads," Artes said.

"MMDA is also considering making adjustments on the traffic lights, if necessary."

According to the MMDA Chief, the agency will intensify its clearing operations to get rid of any type of road obstructions, including illegally-parked vehicles, to ensure that alternate routes are passable.

Additional directional signages were also installed to guide motorists along the alternate routes.

Based on the vehicle traffic count conducted by the MMDA Traffic Engineering Center in May. 109,124 cars per day traversed the aforementioned section of EDSA. The flyover was utilized by 57,354 vehicles, while the service road was used by 51,770 vehicles.
