MANILA – The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) reminded motorists that some roads in Quezon City and Pasig will be closed for repairs.

Affected roads include parts of the southbound lane of the C5 road from Julia Vargas to C-J Caparas Street, parts of the southbound lane of Araneta Avenue from Del Monte Avenue to Maria Clara Street, and parts of the southbound lane of E. Rodriguez Avenue and C5 between Mercury and Eastwood.

Repairs will also be done in the northbound lane of Fairview Avenue from Dona Carmen to Winston Street, and the westbound lane of the Congressional Avenue from Mindanao Avenue to April Street.

Some roads will also be closed as workers construct a footbridge at Greenmeadows.

The MMDA said the footbridge construction on the southbound lane of C5 – Greenmeadows will start at 11 p.m. Saturday until 4 a.m. Sunday. The northbound lane will be closed at 11 p.m. on Sunday until 4 a.m. Monday.

"This will likewise prevent any unnecessary vehicular accidents," MMDA chairman Francis Tolentino said.

Tolentino said zipper lanes will be opened to guarantee smooth flow of traffic.

"We are optimistic that traffic will not be heavy as construction will be done over the weekend until Monday which is a holiday," the MMDA chief added.
