Flood interceptor project of the DPWH is 85% completed

The Department of Public Works and Highways has indicated that the flood interceptor project that will draw in water from flood-prone areas of Metro Manila will be finished by early next year.

Aside from refitting bigger pipes to drain floodwaters that caused the delay, the agency’s construction crew also had to deal with underground electric cables and water pipes that were in the way of the project design.

Now that the issue has been resolved, the DWPH will begin fixing Maynilad pipes as well starting August 10 before moving forward with the construction.

According to the DPWH, the flood interceptor project is already 85% completed and in on track to be finished by March 2016.
