Buses, trucks temporarily prohibited from taking Q. Ave. flyover U-turn

Scaffolding will limit U-turn slot's vertica clearance to 2.5 meters

MMDA Advisory

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will temporarily prohibit heavy and tall vehicles such as buses and trucks from taking the U-turn slot under Quezon Avenue (Q. Ave.).

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • When will the temporary bus and truck prohibition on Q. Ave. flyover U-turn commence?

    The temporary bus and truck ban at the Q. Ave. flyover U-turn will begin on June 22.
  • Why is the MMDA prohibiting buses and trucks from taking the Q. Ave. flyover U-turn?

    The agency is prohibiting buses and trucks from passing through Q. Ave. flyover U-turn due to an upcoming roadwork.
  • Starting June 22, 2023 (Saturday), the agency will only allow light vehicles to pass through the U-turn slot to give way to the installation of scaffolding under the flyover.

    The scaffolds will limit the vertical clearance of the U-turn slot to 2.5 meters only.

    According to the MMDA, the upcoming roadwork is part of the Department of Public Works and Highways-National Capital Region’s on-going project of retrofitting and strengthening of permanent bridges, including the Epifanio de los Santos (EDSA) Q. Ave. flyover.

    MMDA Advisory 1

    Affected vehicles are advised to take the following alternate routes:

    From EDSA Southbound:

    • Left turn to Q. Ave.
    • Left at Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago Ave. (formerly Agham Road)
    • Left at North Ave.
    • To Mindanao Ave. or EDSA

    From EDSA Northbound:

    • Straight towards North Ave.
    • Take a U-turn in front of Quezon City Academy

    The roadwork — MMDA pointed out — is expected to be finished by August 4, 2023.
