Rehabilitation of the east service road could follow soon

The access road from SLEX southbound which leads to Bicutan via the West Service Road(before Merville exit) will be temporarily closed until further notice. The short strip of road found under the Sales Bridge will be rehabilitated by the Department of Public Works and Highways by cementing the whole strip and give it a proper grade elevation to minimize accidents there caused by trucks due to the previously steep inclination of the ramp. Road safety devices will be installed on the area as well.

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority has also stated that rehabilitation of the East Service Road which intersects Philippine National Railway's railroad tracks could be a possibility as the parties involved are already discussing about it.

No completion date was announced by the government sectors involved in the project and advises the affected vehicles to take the Villamor cloverleaf route as a detour until all civil works are completed.
