Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) said on Tuesday that it will resume the installation of its traffic signalization system at the Moonwalk – west service intersection on June 30.
The CIC has mobilized construction to install the traffic lights last March but was suspended due to the enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila.
During the stakeholder’s coordination meeting, CIC Head of Traffic Operations Carlo T. Hipol emphasized the importance of having traffic signals in the area.
“During peak hours, we are experiencing high traffic volume along the West Service Road-Moonwalk Intersection. Though we have on-ground traffic marshals, we deem it necessary to have traffic signals installed in the area to ease the traffic and ensure safe passage of vehicles, 24/7,” he said.
CIC has advised motorists to expect single lane closures in some portions of the intersection from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Apart from the installation of traffic signals, the CIC will also conduct drainage works in the west service road entry ramp area during the construction period, from 10:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m.
During drainage works, a portion of the west service road entry ramp will be closed to traffic, and Merville-bound motorists will be diverted to the west service road exit ramp, which will be converted into two-way traffic.
The succeeding phases of the traffic signalization project includes the installation of traffic signal poles and lanterns, application of pavement markings, installation of various road signs and electrical works.
The entire project is eyed for completion by August 2020. The traffic signals will be turned over to the MMDA for operations and maintenance.
Last year, the CIC facilitated the repairs on Kaingin Road in Parañaque City, which is one of the access points to the Cavitex C5 Link Flyover. The repairs included the leveling of the road pavement and the improvement of the drainage in the area.
The repairs were completed in October 2019. Since then, motorists and pedestrians have been enjoying safe and smooth passage on Kaingin Road.
The Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation is a subsidiary of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation. Aside from the Cavitex and the Cavite-Laguna Expressway, MPTC’s portfolio includes the concessions for the North Luzon Expressway, the Subic-Clark Tarlac Expressway, the NLEX Connector Road, and the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway in Cebu.
