12 roads to be upgraded
UP Diliman may soon offer quicker access to various parts of Quezon City and allow motorists to bypass congested areas like the Quezon Circle with the announced improvement of the UP Diliman Road Network Improvement.
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has begun construction and enhancement of 12 roads within the government-owned campus located in Quezon City.
"The UP Diliman Road Network Improvement involves the construction of 12 roads within the campus. This include the streets of Ylanan, Roces, Laurel, Archery, R.P. De Guzman, E. Jacinto, E. De Los Santos, Pardo De Tavera, Africa, Quirino Ma. Guerrero and the Rotunda,” said DPWH Secretary Mark Villar.
This follows the opening of the newly renovated Ylanan Road that will provide motorists a new route without going to Quezon City Circle from C.P. Garcia and Katipunan access to Commonwealth Avenue.
“The opening of the recently completed Ylanan Road provides students, motorists from C.P. Garcia and Katipunan access to Commonwealth Ave. without having to go to Quezon City Circle,” added Villar.
Currently, the DPWH has begun construction of the 826-meter Jacinto Road that will provide motorists access to C.P. Garcia. "When completed, an improved Jacinto Road would provide better access to UP Diliman, Katipunan, C.P. Garcia and Commonwealth Avenue," said Villar.
"The UP Diliman Road Network Improvement is the first step towards our goal of providing our students the best facilities. We look forward to a strong partnership with DPWH in executing an ambitious blueprint for UP," said UP President Danilo Concepcion.
