To give way to opening of classes
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has decided to temporarily suspend ongoing road works on Metro Manila's major roads for two weeks to prevent traffic congestion that's expected once classes officially resumes next week.
Reports indicate that road rehabilitations that will be affected will be the ones along the stretch of EDSA, specifically on the city of Pasay, Mandaluyong, and Makati. Other areas also include Sampaloc, San Marcelino, and Vito Cruz in Manila; Rizal Avenue Extension in Caloocan, and some areas in Sucat Paranaque.
DPWH ensures that all necessary measures were implemented to ensure smooth flow of traffic including the removal of obstructions on all national roads, sidewalks. Pedestrian lanes were also painted near school crossings.
