Matinding trapik asahan

MANILA, Philippines — Matinding trapik na naman ang mararanasan ng mga motorista, dahil ngayong araw na ito (Martes) ay isasara ng Metropo­litan Manila Development Authority (MMDA)  ang bahagi ng North Avenue sa Quezon City.

Sa press briefing kahapon sa tanggapan ng MMDA,  pinayuhan ang mga motoristang bumabagtas ng North Avenue patungong  Quezon Memorial Circle, na dumaan na lamang sa mga alternatibong ruta.

Mula North Avenue ay kumanan ng  Agham Road,  kaliwa ng Quezon Avenue hanggang  Quezon Memorial Circle  at  destinasyon.

“We want to address the chokepoint area on the Elliptical Road with this road closure,”  ani MMDA General Manager Jojo  Garcia.

Ayon sa MMDA Traffic Engineering Center, nasa 8,728 sasakyang bumabagtas sa  Elliptical Road-Quezon Memorial Circle, samantalang  1,419 behikulo mula North Avenue hanggang  Quezon Memorial Circle tuwing morning rush hour.

Sabi pa ni  Garcia na ang dry run para sa yellow lane policy  sa  Elliptical Road ay tuloy ngayong linggo.

“Starting Monday, we will start apprehending violators through the no contact apprehension policy,” ani Garcia. Please stay-in-your-lane while driving along Elliptical Road. A major cause of traffic congestion in the area is motorists swerving, criss-crossing or making a sudden change of lane that create a chain reaction,” ani Garcia.
