Motorists and commuters aren’t the only people dreading the traffic during the upcoming Southeast Asian (SEA) Games. The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has got its hands full as well.
Just a couple of weeks ago, the agency already released a traffic advisory regarding which areas will be most congested when the games begin. It has also announced that a ‘stop-and-go’ scheme will be observed to ensure that delegates and guests will arrive at all their respective destinations on time.
Now, the MMDA plans to conduct a simulation to see how this planned scheme will play out in real-life traffic situations. It announced via Facebook that a dry run will occur tomorrow, November 14, from 2pm to 4pm. You can check out the official post below:
There will be no roads closed, but the stop-and-go scheme will be implemented to make way for the convoys coming from various parts of Metro Manila, Southern Luzon, Clark, and Subic headed to the Philippine Arena, where the games’ opening ceremonies will be held. The agency specified which routes will be affected come tomorrow’s trial—see more details below:
If you’re driving in the metro or around these areas tomorrow, consider this a warning—traffic will definitely be heavy in the afternoon.
