If you ever passed through Don Alejandro Roces Avenue in Quezon City, you might have noticed that the road condition was really bad, especially in the past year. Worse yet, it wasn’t just on one side. Both the roads heading to Tomas Morato Avenue and the newly opened rotunda were in dire need of repair.
Now, after repair works commenced last July, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has officially completed the rehabilitation of Don Alejandro Roces Avenue. Better yet, the DPWH says that the project was completed five months earlier than its targeted accomplishment. The P18.44 million project, funded under the 2019 General Appropriations Act (GAA), involves the upgrading of damaged concrete pavement.
According to DPWH National Capital Region (NCR) Director Ador G. Canlas, the Quezon City II District Engineering Office intently hastened construction works in order to address the mass number of motorists that pass through Don A. Roces Avenue.
“Since the road upgrading commenced in July, the implementing office has been working tirelessly to complete the project earlier as the Avenue serves as an alternate route going to Tomas Morato, Mother Ignacia, as well as Scout Streets, and vice versa,” Canlas added.
With the road rehabilitation complete, motorists can now pass through Roces Avenue from the end to end without having to take a detour via the side streets of the Scout area. The completion of the project will also help reduce traffic congestion in the area.
