Yes, the month-long Kamuning Flyover closure in Quezon City was a major inconvenience to motorists—but authorities didn’t close an entire side of the bridge just for the sake of it. If you’ll recall, “large potholes and cracks” were spotted in mid-June, which resulted in emergency repairs.
Well, if everything goes as planned, the structure will finally reopen to motorists at 5pm on July 23. That’s Saturday, in case you can’t be bothered to check your calendar.
