Cars free to roam until April 2
Mar 30, 2010

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced the suspension of the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program (UVVRP), more popularly known as color coding, from March 30 to April 2.

"The suspension of the UVVRP is our way of ensuring the convenience of the public," MMDA chairman Oscar Inocentes said. "This way, they can travel without any delay, and there will be enough public utility vehicles to ferry passengers all day long."

The MMDA Traffic and Transport Management Office (TTMO) is also deplyong more than 1,000 traffic enforcers in main thoroughfares like EDSA and other Metro Manila exit points.

The MMDA has also identified potential choke points which will be closely monitored by the TTMO:

McArthur Highway
Ortigas Avenue Extension
Sumulong Highway
Marcos Highway
Coastal Road
Roxas Boulevard

The MMDA said its Roadside Emergency Group will also be on standby to assist troubled motorists during the Holy Week.
