Mambaling un­der­pass done by March 2019

Cebu Daily News - - PROPERTY - /RE­PORT ER MOREX-

THE P638-mil­lion Mambaling un­der­pass pro­ject on N. Ba­calso Av­enue is 80 per­cent com­plete.

En­gi­neer Roy Dela Cruz, Depart­ment of Pub­lic Works and High­ways in Cen­tral Visayas (DPWH-7) pro­ject en­gi­neer, said in an in­ter­view on Fri­day that the pro­ject would be com­pleted and op­er­a­tional this March 2019.

“We are now wrap­ping up Phase Four of the pro­ject and may en­ter Phase Five be­fore De­cem­ber,” said Dela Cruz.

“In Phase Five, we will be start­ing the ac­tual dig­ging of the un­der­pass it­self. Do­ing so, we can now open the side roads of the un­der­pass,” he added.

He said they would open the ser­vice lanes of the Mambaling un­der­pass in De­cem­ber, which would help alle­vi­ate the wors­en­ing traf­fic con­ges­tion, which was caused by the on­go­ing work on the un­der­pass pro­ject.

“This is be­cause our con­struc­tion is al­ready ahead of sched­ule. The fair weather we’ve been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing re­cently have helped the con­trac­tor (WT Con­struc­tion Inc.) to work faster,” added Dela Cruz.

This devel­op­ment is a wel­come news for com­muters and mo­torists es­pe­cially those from south­ern barangays of Cebu City and from south­ern Cebu.

Presently, Cabreros Street is closed for traf­fic since the con­struc­tion of the un­der­pass’ foun­da­tion has reached there.

In the mean­time, the one lane of N. Ba­calso Ave. that re­mains open for traf­fic will ac­com­mo­date north­bound ve­hi­cles while those south­bound will be di­verted to ac­cess roads con­nect­ing the high­way.

“Cabreros Street maybe re­opened to traf­fic by mid-Novem­ber,” said Dela Cruz.
