Maynilad to lay pipes along Andrews Avenue in Pasay; motorists advised to expect light to moderate traffic from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Beginning March 11, 2013 (Monday), Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) will implement the second segment of its pipe replacement project along Andrews Avenue in Pasay City—from Circulo de Mundo Rotunda to Domestic Road. Maynilad completed the first segment of its pipe project along Andrews Avenue, from Sales Road to Circulo de Mundo Rotunda, in December 2012.
To minimize traffic and public inconvenience, the contractors of Maynilad will only be allowed to work from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. The work sites will also be temporarily restored daily to make the street passable during the day.
Maynilad is closely coordinating with the local government of Pasay and the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority to manage traffic flow along the project area.
To help ensure public safety, the work site will be fully enclosed by board-up barricades, with appropriate lighting and traffic/warning signs. Motorists and pedestrians passing through the area are also reminded to strictly observe traffic rules and road safety regulations.
Maynilad allocated P140-million for the project, which will involve the replacement of almost 5 kilometers of primary and secondary lines. The company decided to replace the existing lines since they have become prone to leaks and breakage because of old age. The project’s target completion date is July 2013.
Once completed, the project will improve water supply and pressure for over 26,200 households and establishments in Malibay, Maricaban and Villamor in Pasay.
