MMDA TRAFFIC CAM
THE EASTBOUND side of Marcos Bridge in Marikina City will be closed starting Saturday, May 4, at 11 p.m. for rehabilitation work that is expected to last for eight-months, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced on Tuesday. MMDA General Manager Jose Arturo S. Garcia Jr., in a press briefing, said the “long overdue” rehabilitation will start on the eastbound lanes and will last for four months, after which it will be reopened while the westbound side will be closed, also for four months. The bridge is part of Marcos Highway that stretches from Katipunan in Quezon City to Antipolo City.
Meanwhile, MMDA also reported that the dry run on the ban of provincial bus terminals along EDSA continues with 4,000 provincial buses and 96 provincial bus terminals in Metro Manila affected. The formal implementation of the ban will start in June. — Vince Angelo C. Ferreras
