TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - MMDA‘s solution to NLEX traffic is to open it for counterflow

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority has come up with a temporary solution to address the worsening traffic situation caused by the cargo trucks that congest the roads leading to the ports of Manila, particularly those coming from the north.

Effective immediately, all Class A to Class D vehicles, including shuttle buses, will be allowed to "counter-flow" on the North Luzon Expressway, while the Balintawak toll plaza will be temporarily closed to give way to private vehicles. The counter-flow traffic scheme will also be allowed at Del Pan Bridge in Tondo, Manila, "to hasten the flow of trucks and trailer vans," while two lanes along R-10 Road will also be opened to trucks.

The agency added that it will take over the traffic management of all roads in Metro Manila that have been adversely affected by the port traffic "from here on until September 21."
