MANILA, Philippines — Part of Aurora Boulevard will be closed to motorists from Jan. 25 to Feb. 1 to give way for replacement of 11 escalator units of Light Rail Transit-2 (LRT-2) in Cubao Station, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said Thursday.

MMDA said the closure will be on the westbound lane (Manila bound) from 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 25 (Saturday) to Feb. 1 (Saturday).
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) will “transfer the escalator units from a big truck to Cubao LRT-2 Station using a mobile crane,” MMDA said.
