MANILA, Philippines—The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced that the Katipunan Avenue bypass road will open by the end of 2021.
The Katipunan Avenue bypass road, according to the DPWH, is already 70% complete. Once opened, it will shorten travel time from Quezon City to Rizal province from more than one hour to 40 minutes.
DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said motorists from Rizal can traverse the new bypass road instead of plying through Commonwealth to ease traffic.
“This will benefit Quezon city, Marikina, Rizal it’s an alternative route and its a new alignment in Metro Manila,” he said.
Around 10,000 motorists are estimated to benefit from the bypass road once it is opened to the public. The DPWH also said motorists do not need to pay any toll fees the road becomes operational. AAC (with reports from Joan Nano)
MANILA, Philippines — Manila Water Services is imposing tariff reduction on its clients’ January water bill.
Based on the company’s computation, a 14-centavo cubic meter tariff reduction is possible following the foreign currency differential adjustment (FCDA) which at present has reached 19-centavos per cubic meter.
This means residential customers with average consumption of 30 cubic meters per month will have P3.06 savings in their January bill.
Likewise, those who consume an average of 20 cubic meters per month will have P1.70 savings and P0.76 savings for those consuming an average of 10 cubic meters per month.
Meanwhile, lifeline customers or low-income residential consumers who consume 10 cubic meters or less per month are exempted from the FCDA.
This means that their lifeline rate will remain at P87 per month.
