What roads will be closed as emergency leak repairs start in EDSA-Shaw
Starting today, Manila Water will undertake leak repairs near the EDSA-Shaw Boulevard junction, southbound, 24 hours daily until August 20, 2018.
Because of this, the outermost lane of EDSA in front of Starmall will be closed to traffic in the duration of project. Two lanes at the service road will remain open to traffic.
Repairs will entail the laying of 210 linear meters of new 500mm steel pipe along EDSA southbound running up to the intersection with Shaw Blvd.
The newly-laid pipe will be interconnected to the existing 500mm steel pipe at its north end and to the existing 800mm steel pipe at its south end.
Manila Water said point repair was not considered as the damaged pipe is located under a foundation of the MRT, and may compromise the strength of the structure.
Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is moving the affected bus stop to two temporary locations along EDSA southbound: one approaching Starmall near the footbridge and another after Shaw Blvd.
Vehicles turning right from EDSA to Shaw Blvd. will temporarily pass through the Starmall premises, to allow southbound buses and private vehicles to use the service road exclusively.
