Barges eyed to transport cargo with 3-month Roxas Boulevard closure

The government is looking at barging containers to Cavite Gateway Terminal (CGT) to ensure continued flow of trade once a portion of Roxas Boulevard is rehabilitated and closed to vehicular traffic for three months.

The possible solutions and alternative routes for trucks and trailers that will be affected by the road closure were discussed on December 27 among the Department of Transportation (DOTr), Philippine Ports Authority (PPA), Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), and port operator International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) during an inspection at Manila International Container Terminal (MICT).

The southbound portion of Roxas Boulevard will be closed to vehicular traffic to give way to the rehabilitation of a damaged old drainage structure in front of Libertad Pumping Station in Pasay City.
