Two additional vehicular lanes will be added on top of the forthcoming flood control project.
Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has constructed a flood control project along Timog Avenue in Quezon City.
 
Last Friday, 31 March 2017, DPWH formally opened the 522-meter additional service road over the newly constructed reinforced concrete box culvert from Timog Avenue to Scout Boromeo Street in the area.

Mark Villar - DPWH Secretary said: “The construction of reinforced concrete box culvert increased the capacity of Anaran Creek for effective mitigation of perennial flooding at South Triangle area particularly at Mother Ignacia Avenue and Panay Avenue. The old open channel of 2.40 meters width by 4.30 meters deep from Timog Avenue to Scout Borromeo Street was replaced by a reinforced concrete box culvert 5.30 meters width by 4.35 meters deep”.
 
The agency believes that movement of vehicles along Timog Avenue will considerably improve with the opening of these additional lanes on top of a completed flood control structure.

“With the completion of Timog Avenue to Scout Borromeo Street segment, DPWH will continue to step-up and take advantages of the good weather in completing similar activities at the 583 lineal meters on-going segment from after Scout Borromeo Street to near Sgt. Esguerra Street," added Villar.
