On my way home last night (about 5:00 PM) from Makati City to Quezon City, I passed by Kalayaan Avenue and C5 to avoid the EDSA traffic.
Approaching the intersection of Kalayaan Avenue and C5, I was surprised to see barricades preventing the left turn to and crossing C5. All vehicles are directed to turn right to C5. Then, I saw the elevated U-turn already opened and operational. I understand it was opened last Friday night (August 1). This makes the travel definitely longer and increases the fuel consumption. I couldn’t say as yet if this could make the travel faster. Though I doubt it, let’s wait and see first.
