MANILA, Philippines – Part of Meralco Avenue along Ortigas, Pasig City, is set to be closed effective Monday evening, October 3, until the fourth quarter of 2028 for the construction of the Metro Manila Subway project.

The closure covers the front section of Capitol Commons up to the corner of Shaw Boulevard.

Meralco Avenue will be the access point for the 33-kilometer subway’s Shaw Boulevard and Ortigas stations.

Here are the alternative routes while construction is ongoing:

  • Public utility jeepneys from Meralco Avenue going to Shaw Boulevard will be rerouted to Captain Henry Javier Street to Danny Floro Street
  • Modernized jeepneys are rerouted to Doña Julia Vargas Avenue to San Miguel Avenue
  • UV Express will take either Doña Julia Vargas Avenue to San Miguel Avenue or Andra Road to Camino Verde
  • All private vehicles can access all available routes
