A street severely affected by various excavations by utility companies over the years in Pasig City was already rehabilitated, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said.
The deteriorated concrete pavement of the four-lane Capt. Henry Javier Street, which is located in a highly commercialized area in the city, have been replaced, DPWH-National Capital Region Director Ador Canlas said.
According to Canlas, temporary asphalt patching was only done in the past on top of it being severely affected by excavations by utility companies.
The road project involved the removal of the 756-meter dilapidated pavement and replacement with 300-mm thick Portland concrete cement pavement,. It was implemented under a P29-million budget.
Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar, on the other hand, said that “the rehabilitation of this busy road will surely be a relief for motorists coming from Ortigas Business District going to E. Rodriguez Avenue, Pasig Boulevard and C5 Road as they can now have a more comfortable and faster travel time.”
