To motorists who often use the Manggahan Bridge in Pasig City, take note, as the local government unit will be implementing a new traffic scheme in the area.

Starting MondayAugust 2, a one-way traffic scheme will be implemented along Manggahan Bridge. The bridge will be exclusive to all Ortigas-bound vehicles, meaning only vehicles coming in from the side of East Bank Road headed towards West Bank Road will be allowed passage. Those looking to go north towards Marcos Highway along Amang Rodriguez Avenue will have to take Ortigas Avenue and do a U-turn towards East Bank Road. 

Those who regularly pass through the area may be familiar with the usual heavy traffic that builds up around the bridge. This thoroughfare is a common route for people coming in from Rizal and Marikina headed southbound towards Ortigas. It’s also a bottleneck area for those living in Manggahan, Santolan, and Rosario.
