MMDA and DPWH will close EDSA-Timog flyover SB for 1 month

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) have announced that the southbound lane of the EDSA-Timog flyover (near GMA7) will be closed for at least 1 month, starting June 25, 2022.

“We are advising the public to plan their trips and take alternate routes as the DPWH repairs the flyover,” said MMDA Chairman, Romando Artes, during an inspection at the flyover with DPWH-Quezon City Second District Engr. Eduardo Santos today.

The repairs, spanning 30 meters, include the reconstruction of the damaged bridge diaphragm and the construction of a new bridge deck slab for the flyover.   

“Total closure of the bridge has to be implemented considering that the construction works have to be done without any vibration movement. Repairs will be done manually without heavy equipment,” said Artes.

The full closure of the flyover will take effect starting at 6:00 AM on June 25 (Saturday). EDSA Carousel buses and private vehicles may use the service road and take alternative routes. Around 140,000 vehicles passing through the flyover daily will be affected by the closure.
