The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has announced that the planned rehabilitation of the Magallanes Interchange will begin as soon as permits for the required road closures are acquired from the City of Makati.

A portion of the southbound land of the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) coming from Manila headed towards the Magallanes Interchange will be closed for 10 days as part of the project under the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) with an expected completion date of December 2014.

“This southbound lane of SLEX will be closed as soon as the DPWH secures the appropriate permits from the city government of Makati,” said MMDA Traffic Engineering Center (TEC) Director Neomi Recio.

Upon approval of the 10-day road closure, the wall separating the service road and the SLEX will be torn down to allow all the southbound and northbound traffic to be diverted to the service road.
