“From November 5, 2018, until January 14, 2019, all SM Supermalls, Ayala Malls, and Robinsons malls located along EDSA, Marcos Highway, Commonwealth Avenue, and C5-Libis will open their doors to shoppers at exactly 11am.
“Closing times are entirely up to the mall operators’ discretion, but Pialago said that the agency has recommended that they keep their doors open for as long as possible. 'The later they stay open, the better,’ she told us.”
“The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has announced that there will be a moratorium on roadwork in Metro Manila beginning November 5, 2018. Under this policy, road repairs and utilities projects that will affect the flow of traffic—whether it’s water pipes, telephone poles, or electric lines—will be limited to 11pm to 5am.”
“The bill’s conditions include: That passengers have the right to be picked up and dropped off ‘regardless of the length of the journey or traffic condition by any available on duty driver’; that the vehicle be regularly serviced and checked by the Land Transportation Office (LTO); and that passengers complaints to the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) must be resolved no later than seven working days after due mediation and adjudication.”
Here’s everything the Department of Energy (DOE) is doing to combat the recent fuel price hikes.
“Minority Floor Leader Franklin Drilon and Senators Francis Pangilinan, Bam Aquino, Risa Hontiveros, Antonio Trillanes, and Leila de Lima submitted Senate Joint Resolution No. 15 earlier today, emphasizing the need for Congress to lessen the burden of rising fuel prices on Filipinos by suspending the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion Law’s (TRAIN) excise tax increase on fuel products.”
“There will be no delays to the Philippine government’s PUV Modernization Program (PUVMP). This was the assurance delivered by Department of Transportation (DOTr) secretary Arthur Tugade earlier today, following various reports saying the overhaul was set to be postponed.”
“The DOTr says the parking area will be open to motorists 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Perfect! This is just in time for the 2018 holiday rush. Thanks to developments like this and the NAIA Expressway, which cuts travel time to the airport terminals by a considerable chunk, things are finally looking up.”
