    Sucat Interchange closure on hold

    http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/624676/...-on-sucat-road

    DUMADAAN KA BA SA SUCAT INTERCHANGE BRIDGE? East-bound lane closed to traffic today, then on Aug. 2

    "Bridge project or no bridge project, Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez says he plans to impose a truck ban on the city's major roads

    MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Motorists south of Metro Manila can relax for now after the temporary postponement of a planned 45-day repair of the Sucat Interchange Bridge.

    The repairs were supposed to begin on Saturday, August 2 and end by September 15.

    In a statement earlier on Wednesday, July 30, Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez said the Department of Public Works and Highways advised city residents to brace for heavier traffic once the DPWH closes the east-bound lane of the bridge.

    In another statement released later on the same day, Olivarez said the city government and the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) put the project on hold “because the DPWH failed to notify the MMDA and the city government in advance.”

    “This should give us more time to prepare contingency measures and alternative routes to mitigate the effect of the bridge repair on our constituents and motorists,” Olivarez said, adding that they only knew about the project on Friday, July 25.

    According to Olivarez, areas that will be affected the most by the bridge closure include the entire stretch of Dr A. Santos Avenue (Sucat Road) and the East and West Service Roads of the South Luzon Expressway in both the Parañaque and Muntinlupa sides.

    Earlier, Olivarez said he told the city’s traffic management office to come up with alternative routes for motorists affected by the repairs. Even with the suspension of the project, the mayor said they are looking at introducing a truck ban in the city.

    “Even without the interchange bridge repair, traffic is already too heavy along Dr. A. Santos Avenue and other major thoroughfares in the city, so we are leaning towards the implementation of a selective truck ban along major roads in the coming weeks,” said Olivarez.

    The city’s major roads – Sucat Road, Ninoy Aquino Avenue, Quirino Avenue, and the East and West Service Roads – would be where the ban will take effect. Should the truck ban be implemented, it will cover heavy trailer trucks, container vans, transit mixers, and haulers of sand and aggregates.

    Olivarez added the planned truck ban is already under an existing city ordinance which has yet to be fully implemented because of traffic coming from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and the city’s many businesses.

    “Hopefully, this will help alleviate traffic in the city, and should contribute to lesser traffic jams if and when the DPWH resumes the repair work on the Sucat Interchange,” said Olivarez in the statement"

    Yes bro.,- dahil wala raw proper coordination, and to give more time for the local government and MMDA to advise the motorists to take on alternate routes,- pero, saan pa ito???

    Anyway,- kung talagang kailangan na dahil nga may safety issue,- huwag ng i-delay ng matagal... Tsaka papalapit ng nga ang Christmas Season,- lalong lalaki ang volume ng traffic....

    Iyan ang sinasabi kong lack of foresight ng DPWH... E kung naglagay sila ng ramp down from Skyway to SLEX northbound right after the Sucat Interchange, while widening the ramp up to accommodate a second lane - e di mayroong options ang mga sasakyan na umakyat ng Skyway at bumaba sa SLEX, decongesting the interchange....

    The same is true for Bicutan....

    Libre o P5,- call na ng mga motorista kung kakagat sila....

    Yes, it is money,- but the government can demand such from the subcontractor during the planning or even during the construction phase,- traffic na nga,- e di isagad na ang dapat gawin.

    One big miss of the government is this,- why didn't they connect the Skyway, a major thoroughfare with C5, another major thoroughfare? Simpleng logic, di ba? All major thoroughfares have to be connected to decongest the secondary roads.

    One other big miss,- na leche-leche na nila ang traffic sa lugar na iyon during the construction of the Skyway,- why didn't they connect C5 to the West Service Road to decongest Sales Bridge and Bicutan?

    Hay naku!

    Puro mga B*P*L ang mga taong iyan. Ang masaklap,- sila ang nagbibigay serbisyo sa taong bayan.....

    Again,- they are the Government and the Customer,- they can demand such to the subcontractor. Kaya nga subcontractor ang tawag e,- sunud-sunuran dapat iyan sa gustong gawing ng Customer.

    ang customer ata dyan e ung tinatawag din na contractor, motorist and residents are not considered.

    kung saan mapapataas ang project cost, itapon na sa bintana ang common sense.

    I emailed the former President of skyway about the C5-skyway connection, meron siyang sinabing dahilan nakalimutan ko lang...I will try to look sa email history ko kung ano sinabi na reason

    yun naman sa C5-west service road I'm sure another red tape reason diyan...diba putol ang C5 SB sa dulo? meron parang underground doon sa gitna before ka makarating ng toll? alam ko yun dapat ang connection from c5 to C5 extention so kasama na yun west service road pag natuloy sana
