MANILA, Philippines – Despite the influx of passengers queuing at various terminals for a bus ride to their provinces for the Holy Week, traffic remained normal at the South and North Luzon Expressways Monday morning, Radyo Inquirer 990AM reports said.

Officials of the Manila Toll Expressway System Inc. (MATES) said that traffic along the 36-kilometer SLEX from Alabang to Sto. Tomas, Batangas remained normal at around 9 a.m.

The report said that no accidents have been reported as of this morning along the said expressway.

There were three minor accidents along SLEX on Sunday, it added.

MATES said that it will start implementing “Ligtas Oplan Cuaresma 2012” on Wednesday in cooperation with the Department of Transportation and Communications.

Likewise, traffic was also normal along the NLEX with an average of 1,000 vehicles plying the said expressway every hour, another report said.

The expressway’s Traffic Operation Center expects more vehicles to drive through NLEX by Wednesday and pegs the number to be around 200,000.

The NLEX TOC is prepared for possible emergency situations and will deploy additional personnel, tellers, and assign express lanes from April 4 to 5.
