A P55-million road widening project that will decongest vehicular traffic along Katipunan Avenue fronting the University of the Philippines-Diliman campus in Quezon City is now being rushed for completion by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar, after inspecting the on-going construction of two additional concrete lanes between Shuster Street to C.P. Garcia Avenue (South Bound), Quezon City, said that the 720-linear-meter road project will help alleviate perennial traffic congestion in the area, especially during rush hours.
Part of the DPWH efforts to alleviate traffic woes is to embark on widening the existing road network to improve road capacity. Villar assured the DPWH Quezon City Second District Engineering Office is working hard to expedite construction of additional road lanes on Katipunan Avenue.
“We intend to finish the widening of Katipunan Avenue before December, 2017, just in time for the Christmas Holiday Rush,” he said.
Meanwhile, DPWH has also officially started the Katipunan Avenue Extention Project, a 5.85-kilometer road from Katipunan Avenue to Batasan-San Mateo Road which includes 1.146 kilometer portion of Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) property.
The road with alignment within Vista Real and Loyola Grand Villa is DPWH Quezon City First District Engineer Roseller Tolentino’s action to the instruction of Secretary Villar to find an alternate route for areas encountering heavy traffic. Both Katipunan and Commonwealth Avenues have this perennial problem especially during rush hours.
