( - October 29, 2017 - 9:54am

MANILA, Philippines — The Interior and Local Government on Sunday announced that they would implement lockdown and there would be affected roads during the conduct of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in November 2017

DILG Officer-in-Charge Catalino Cuy, who is also the concurrent chairperson of the ASEAN Committee on Security, Peace and Order, Emergency Preparedness and Response (CSPOEPR), sought for public’s understanding amid the scheduled lockdown and road closures.

"With less than two weeks before the event, I urge the public to steer clear of said lockdown areas so that they will not be trapped just in case there is a passing a convoy," Cuy said.

Cuy also advised the motorists and land travelers to refrain from passing through the North Luzon Expressway and EDSA as stop and go scheme would be implemented every time an ASEAN convoy passes through these two major highways.

The DILG said for the lockdown period,   pedestrians and vehicles without ASEAN IDs and decals would be allowed to enter the ASEA routes provided that they pass through the vehicle and pedestrian security areas.

On the other hand, on days with full lockdown schedule, only pedestrians and vehicles with ASEAN IDs and decals would be allowed to pass while the general public will be denied access to these routes.  

Cuy also asked the local chief executives of Metro Manila and Region III to provide support to the ASEAN delegates. He requested the local government units to remove unwanted elements on the streets that would create more traffic, and display information, education and communication materials that express support for ASEAN.

The acting DILG chief thanked LGUs that responded to the logistical needs of the ASEAN Summit.
