MANILA – The U-turn slot, both northbound and southbound, in front of Quezon City Academy along Edsa will be closed to motorists starting Oct. 12 to give way to the busway project, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced Wednesday.
Directional signage will be installed within the vicinity of the affected U-turn slot starting Oct. 5 to notify motorists of the impending closure.
Early this week, the U-turn slot near Trinoma Mall and North Avenue was also closed to motorists.
Motorists are advised to take the following detour routes:
— From northbound going southbound, affected vehicles may take U-turn slot after Congressional Avenue (in front of Landers)
— From southbound going northbound, affected vehicles may take U-turn slot after Quezon Avenue Service Road (under Quezon Avenue flyover)
“The eventual closure of U-turn slots along Edsa will make commuters travel through the Edsa Carousel easier, more convenient, and faster,” MMDA Chairman Danilo Lim said in a news release.

More traffic enforcers would be deployed to guide motorists and manage traffic flow in affected areas. (MMDA PR)
