Heads up motorists commuters!

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) released on Saturday, June 25, road closures and traffic rerouting that will be implemented starting 12:01 a.m. Sunday, June 26, as part of the security measures for the inauguration of President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.

The road closure and traffic rerouting plans were crafted in consultation with the security cluster and the City Government of Manila, according to MMDA Chairman Romando Artes.

Artes said they will be deploying 2,000 of its personnel to assist in managing the traffic flow in areas that will be affected by road closures, as well as personnel that will focus on road clearing and emergency responses.

More or less 1,200 guests, including incoming Cabinet members, diplomats, legislators, members of the Judiciary, international and local media, and other guests are expected to attend the inauguration to be held at the National Museum grounds before noon.

“Tow trucks and ambulances will also be dispatched to strategic locations for quick response when needed,” said Artes.

“The MMDA, in close coordination with the Presidential Security Group, City Government of Manila, Manila Police District, and National Capital Region Police Office, is tasked to ensure the participants’ seamless movement and traffic management,” he added.
