MMDA Truck Ban Lift (UNTV News)
MANILA, Philippines — Pansamantala munang aalisin ang ipinatutupad na truck ban sa kahabaan ng Roxas simula sa Miyerkules.
Ayon sa MMDA, simula December 17 hanggang December 22 ay maaaring dumaan ang mga truck sa Roxas Boulevard mula alas-dose ng hatinggabi hanggang ala-singko ng madaling araw.
Ito ay bilang tugon sa hiling ng Malakanyang na bigyang-daan ang mga truck na nagde-deliver ng supply ngayong holiday season at equipment para sa urgent road repair works.
Samantala, sa December 19 naman ay bawal dumaan sa Marcelino Street sa Maynila ang mga truck mula sa South Luzon Expressway dahil sa inaasahang build-up ng mga sasakyan sa huling araw ng Biyernes bago sumapit ang holiday season. (UNTV News)

“After less than three months of repair, motorists going to Antipolo can now utilize the eastbound portion of the bridge,” Garcia said.
He also said that zipper lane will be implemented on the eastbound side for those going out of Marikina due to larger volume of vehicles especially during rush hours.
The Quezon City Task Force for Transport and Traffic Management has launched ‘Bayanihan sa Lansangan’ which will dispatch more buses in Commonwealth Avenue.
Aside from the severe traffic, there are also not enough buses for an estimated 30,000 – 40,000 commuters in the area.
Rene Hanolino, one of the commuters, said he spends time just waiting for a bus ride every morning.
“Mga 15 minutes, pinakamatagal na sa akin iyon, pag-aabang. Kasi talagang madami namang pasahero. Tiyaga lang naman (Around 15 minutes, that is the longest time I’ve waited because there are a lot of passengers. It takes patience),” he said.
During the first day of the implementation on Tuesday (Aug 20), authorities directed the passengers to where they should wait for buses.
Traffic czar of Quezon City Task Force For Transport And Traffic Management Ariel Inton said the heavy crowd of passengers waiting for a ride have begun to block the roads.
“Sa dami nila, bumabara sa mga private vehicles. Iyong mga bus naman, sinasalubong nila kasi dumadating dito iyong mga bus, punuan na (Because of their sheer number, they block the private vehicles. Other passengers try to get ahead by catching the bus before it reaches the stop, so its already full by the time it gets there ),” he said.
Inton added that the ‘Bayanihan sa Lansangan’ will be able to provide enough buses for passengers.—AAC (with reports from Asher Cadapan Jr.)
