MMDA postpones Marcos Bridge closure again

The Metro Manila Development Authority has postponed the closure and rehabilitation of the eastbound portion of the Marcos Bridge in Marikina City until further notice.

“The private contractors of the Marcos Bridge rehabilitation project failed to install signages and carry out the necessary preparations for the agreed traffic rerouting plan in the area that might cause traffic chaos should the project push through,” said the MMDA in an advisory on Thursday.

MMDA general manager Jose Arturo Garcia Jr. said he would meet with private contractors of the project next week to discuss updates on their preparations and to decide when the repairs on the bridge would start.

The eastbound portion of the Marcos Bridge was supposed to be closed on May 11 for rehabilitation works that would have lasted for four months, while private contractors of the Department of Public Works and Highways worked on the opposite direction for another four months.

The MMDA deferred the start of the project originally scheduled for May 4.

Earlier, Garcia explained the bridge was already overdue for rehabilitation as the structure was built more than three decades ago.

Around 3,000 motorists will be affected by the closure, according to MMDA estimates.
