If you plan on heading out tomorrow, November 14, bring extra snacks, power banks, and things to entertain you in traffic, not to mention tons of patience. The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced that they’ll be testing the traffic plan for the upcoming Southeast Asian Games opening ceremony on EDSA and other major roads.
The yellow lane on EDSA will be used by the convoys going to the Philippine Arena in Bulacan, where the opening ceremony will be held. The convoys will come from different points in Metro Manila, as well as Southern Luzon, Clark, and Subic. During the dry run, the stop-and-go traffic scheme will be in effect.
The SEA Games will be held from November 30 to December 11 in different venues in Metro Manila, affecting traffic in the metro and surrounding areas. The MMDA previously announced the expected choke points and the areas affected by the stop-and-go traffic scheme. Take note and be prepared!
