In a previous story, we made a brief mention of the imminent traffic works to be made near and along the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) to address the current traffic situation. Fortunately, we now have more details regarding that.
First, motorists are advised that the Alabang northbound entry toll plaza will be relocated further north of the tollway to help decongest the bottleneck along the Alabang Viaduct. The operator of the southern tollway, Manila Toll Expressway Systems, Inc. (MaTES), released a more detailed statement via social media. You can check out the tweet below:
At the same time, the management has confirmed that there will indeed be a new one-way northbound traffic scheme to be implemented along the East Service Road. It has advised vehicles headed for Alabang to instead take the West Service Road or the Sucat Southbound Entry along SLEX. Like the relocation of the Alabang offramp, this one-way scheme will take effect starting October 8, 10pm.
Since the Skyway O&M Corp. said in a recent statement that the situation is expected to improve by the end of November, we can expect that these new schemes will be effective until then.
Do you think these will help ease the situation for the time being?
