TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - DPWH hopes to start next phase of Magallanes Interchange repair

Now that the Department of Public Works and Highways has completed the repair of the 301-lineal-meter Manila-Alabang southbound lane of the Magallanes Interchange, it is now getting ready to complete the repair of the entire road network on schedule.

"We hope to start the next stage of the Magallanes Interchange repair soon, as we aim to finish it on or before the expiration of the project clearance," said DPWH secretary Rogelio Singson.

The agency official added that the road repair clearance granted by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority is valid only until February 28, 2015, with the construction time limited on weekdays from 11pm to 5 am. This means that, unlike the recently completed work on the Manila-Alabang southbound lane, there will be no total closure as the agency plans to do the repair one lane at a time.

As for the succeeding repair works, it will cover the 345.95-lineal-meter Ayala to Roxas Boulevard, 410.35-lineal-meter Alabang to Ayala, 405.65-lineal-meter Ayala to Manila/Alabang, and 345.95-lineal-meter Roxas Boulevard to Ayala lanes.

According to the DPWH, the last repair conducted on the Magallanes Interchange was carried out way back in the '80s.
