MANILA — The Metro Manila Development Authority and the Department of Public Works and Highways have agreed to begin the rehabilitation of Edsa next year.

MMDA Chair Francis Tolentino and DPWH Secretary Rogelio Singson have agreed in a meeting to begin the P3.74 billion project after the completion of two other infrastructure next year.

The repair of the Dario Bridge in Quezon City and the renovation of the Magallanes Interchange will be finished early next year.

Waiting for other on-going projects to finish was seen as the best move as Tolentino said that adding more projects will create more massive traffic jams.

This is because of the ongoing major works including the Skyway Stage 3 project.

Tolentino has remained firm on its decision  not to give permit to the Edsa rehabilitation pending the ongoing road works. Check out essay help here.

Without the permits, the DPWH could not push through with the implementation of the rehabilitation which was started in 2005.

“Actually, the Edsa rehabilitation project should have started way back in 2005 but it never pushed through because it would cause disorder along the major thoroughfare,” he said as quoted in a Philippine Daily Inquirer report by Maricar Brizuela.
