The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has announced that a portion of Regalado Highway in Quezon City will be closed from 11:00 p.m. on Monday, February 26, up to 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday, February 27.


Jojo Garcia, acting MMDA General Manager, said on Monday afternoon the closure will cover both northbound and southbound lanes of Bristol Street to Commonwealth Avenue.

“This is to give way to pile testing activities that private contractor EEI Corporation will conduct in line with the construction of the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) 7,” Garcia said in a statement.


The MMDA advised motorists to take the following alternative routes:

— Vehicles going to Quezon Memorial Circle may take Quirino Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue or may take Belfast Street and Mindanao Avenue.

— Vehicles going to San Jose Del Monte City (SJDMC) may take Mindanao Avenue and Regalado Avenue.

Lane marking on Commonwealth

Meanwhile, Garcia advised motorists that EEI Corp, would likewise conduct lane marking activities on Commonwealth Avenue – from University Avenue to Philcoa area – during the same time period.

No roads, however, would be closed for the contractor’s activity but it would limit the lanes available for motorists, Garcia explained.

“The contractors need to expand their work area in the middle but seven lanes will remain for motorists use,” the MMDA official said.                     /kga
