Maynilad to replace old pipes along Andrews Avenue and Sales Road in Pasay; motorists advised to expect light to moderate traffic.
Motorists passing through Andrews Avenue and Sales Road in Pasay City will experience light-to-moderate traffic beginning October 19, 2012, as Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) implements its pipe replacement project in the area.
Due to their old age, the water lines in this part of Pasay have been prone to leakage and breakage. To address the problem, Maynilad is spending P140 million to install almost 5 kilometers of new primary and secondary lines along Sales Road and Andrews Avenue, from near Gozar Street to Domestic Road in Pasay City.
Once completed in March 2013, the project will improve water supply and pressure for over 26,200 households and establishments in Malibay, Maricaban and Villamor in Pasay.
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.
