Streets from Aguinaldo to Lacson, from west to east, eastward can only pass through thirteenth, fifteenth, seventeenth, nineteenth, twenty first, twenty fourth streets (Diagonal Parking southside only).
Secondly, truck-ban hours.
According to BTAC they will have a 6-9PM truck-ban hours with no window hour for all trucks passing through the Circumferential Road and there are only 14 exemptions to the truck-ban as stated by the City Ordinance 542.
Lastly, clamping and towing for illegal parkings around the city. This strategy is yet to be finalized with the city’s third party contractor but will surely be implemented once everything is settled.
This new traffic plan will take effect starting Monday, Dec. 12.
