In his Facebook post, Sotto said the rehabilitation of the roads include the installation of 45 LED lights, asphalting of pavements, and the declogging of sewers.

The mayor also visited Topaz Road in Barangay San Antonio, which is also undergoing repair due to a huge crack that appeared in the area last August.

“Thanks to Ortigas, OCAI, and Brgy San Antonio. With everyone’s cooperation, progress is fast and it looks like the road will be on service in November,” Sotto said in his post.

Prior to this, the LGU (local government unit) also started the rehabilitation of Kenneth Road and Mercedes Avenue.

Sotto explained that the OK project aims to give excellent service to the citizens of Pasig.

In May of last year, the LGU started constructing additional bike lanes and sidewalks around the city.

“We are introducing bike lanes and extending sidewalks starting in the following areas: Market Avenue (Pasig Mega Market Area), Caruncho Avenue (around the City Hall Complex), and Amang Rodriguez Avenue (East Bank to Marcos Highway),” the LGU said in another Facebook post.
