TEAM operations head Arnold Malig-on, led the rerouting of vehicles after a portion of M. C. Briones Street was closed due to the damaged Maguikay skywalk.

The road closure starts from the traffic light at the corner of U. N. Avenue and M. C. Briones, particularly near Pacific Mall, up to the corner of G. Ouano Street or near KFC.

TEAM Executive Director Edwin Jumao-as said that they have yet to identify who hit the skywalk rendering it weaker and risky.

“Wala mahibaw-e kon kinsay naka bangga kay kadlawon na ug dile maklaro sa cctv,” said Jumao-as.

Jumao-as also said that they would conduct a post-evaluation of the rerouting scheme in the area tomorrow, March 31. He also said that the road would be closed until the DPWH would finish fixing the skywalk.

According to Malig-on, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will start to repair the skywalk this evening and will try to finish it within a few days.    /rcg
