MANILA, Philippines—The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority announced Thursday that the traffic coding scheme will be lifted Friday in Metro Manila as the country observes Eid ul Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice, a Muslim holiday.

President Benigno Aquino III issued Proclamation No. 488 declaring Oct. 26, 2012 a regular holiday throughout the country, the MMDA said in its Twitter post.

Under the number coding scheme, vehicles with plate numbers ending in 9 and 0 are barred from major thoroughfares in Metro Manila from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m every Friday.
