MANILA, Philippines—The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority on Monday said its Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program (UVVRP), or the number-coding scheme, will not be lifted in Quezon City despite President Benigno Aquino’s State of the Nation Address (Sona) at the House of Representatives in Batasan, which is located  in that city.

Barred to travel in major thoroughfares every Monday are vehicles with plate numbers ending in 1 and 2.

MMDA said it will deploy 1,200 of its personnel to ensure orderly traffic near the Batasan complex.

The MMDA is also set to deploy about 100 crowd control and management personnel for the Sona.

Emergency personnel, fire trucks and ambulances will also be on standby.

Traffic Advisory

Meanwhile, the MMDA advised motorists to take alternate routes as certain sections of Commonwealth Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic.

Starting at 5 a.m. traffic was rerouted from U-turn slot in front of Jocfer Building and Omni Tire Supply passing south-bound up to San Simon U-turn slot (1-6 km counter-flow).

Four south-bound lanes will be used by motorists leading to north-bound (Fairview) direction via reverse flow of traffic.

Motorists coming from Tivoli Royale and other plush subdivisions at the back of Ever Gotesco shall use the Jocfer U-turn slot.

The available U-turn slots prior to Jocfer will be used as the alternate U-turn slot for motorists traveling toward Fairview areas.

Motorists from Capitol Estates 1 will be used as the U-turn slot fronting St. Peter Church to get to the north-bound (Fairview area) or south-bound (EDSA areas).

At 12 noon IBP road becomes one-way traffic (the road leading to HoR). It will be cleared for vehicles coming from Commonwealth, Filinvest 1, Sinagtala, San Mateo Road, Filinvest 2 on their way
to HoR, Fairview and Commonwealth Avenue (all right turns only).

The opposite direction leading to Sandiganbayan underpass and Commonwealth Avenue shall be for the exclusive use of vehicles coming from the House of Representatives until the Sona is concluded.

Meanwhile, members of Congress coming from San Mateo will be allowed to turn left going to Batasan.

An alternate route that motorists may take to decongest Commonwealth Avenue is the Congressional Avenue, from where they turn left  to Mindanao Avenue, turn right to Sauyo Road, turn left to Chestnut, turn right to Dahlia and turn left  to Regalado Avenue to reach Fairview Center Mall where motorists can proceed either to northbound and southbound direction.

For motorists from Fairview area, they may take the same route (opposite direction) on their way to Quezon Memorial Circle or EDSA.

IBP Litex Road will be closed for motorists coming from Montalban/Rodriguez Area. They can  take Soliven St. in going to Commonwealth Ave. and Fairview area.

At 6 p.m., traffic flows along Commonwealth Avenue and IBP/Batasan Road will return to normal.
