West zone Maynilad Water Services Inc. has completed the realignment, replacement and relocation of around 6.7 kilometers of water pipelines in 2020 to help speed up the implementation of several government infrastructure projects.
The reconfiguration of these primary and secondary pipelines were done in portions of Caloocan City, Quezon City, Valenzuela City, Parañaque City and Las Piñas City to give way to the ongoing construction work on new railways, drainage lines and other vital installations.
These include the construction of the Philippine National Railways North, MRT-7 and LRT1 Extension, which would help to ease travel for hundreds of commuters once completed.
“It is important to ensure that these vital government projects are not delayed. So we strive to support by accommodating requests to realign some of our existing pipelines with due consideration to Maynilad customers whose water supply may be temporarily affected by such realignments, as well as to motorists who pass by our construction sites,” Maynilad chief operating officer Randolph Estrellado said.
