Residents of Quezon City, take note: The Katipunan Avenue Extension project is set to open this year.
According to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), the new 3.38km extension of the major thoroughfare in Quezon City is targeted for completion in 2021.
Updates and progress of the project
“We are fast-tracking the construction of Phases 1 and 2 from Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) Property and Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) Properties to Vista Real Subdivision, which are now 60% and 90% complete, [respectively],” said DPWH secretary Mark Villar.
DPWH Quezon City First District engineer Loida Busa also said that the agency has already delivered the 800-meter road extension and the 22.5-meter permanent bridge along Vista Real Classic Subdivision in Barangay Batasan Hills.
An alternative route from Katipunan to Batasan and Rizal
Once complete, the new road will provide an alternate route from Katipunan to Batasan, toward Rizal Province to ease traffic along Katipunan Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue. The latter is also expected to be decongested by at least 10,000 vehicles thanks to the new road.
