The Tripa De Gallina Bridge or the Buendia Bridge in Pasay City will be closed starting 12 midnight Holy Wednesday to 12 noon on Easter Sunday.
This was announced by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) in a press conference Tuesday afternoon.
The bridge has to be closed in order for it to be fully rehabilitated
“The rehabilitation has already started but private contractors required the bridge’s full closure for some concrete pouring works,” Jose Arturo Garcia, MMDA general manager, said.
The agency advised motorists to take Emilia Street.
A counter flow lane, Garcia said, will be opened on a portion of Buendia Avenue to accommodate public utility buses and cargo trucks along the major thoroughfare.
MMDA also said that reblocking works will be executed on Katipunan Avenue after FB Dela Rosa Street (truck lane) in Quezon City from Friday, April 17 at 11 p.m. to Monday, April 22 at 5 a.m.
