MANILA, Philippines— The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) reminded the public on Monday that the number coding scheme was suspended until Wednesday.

Charlie Nosares of the MMDA said that number coding was also lifted in the cities of Las Piñas and Makati throughout the long weekend to ensure that motorists have easy access to major roads.

The coding scheme bars vehicles from major thoroughfares in Metro Manila depending on the last digit of their plate numbers.

Under the scheme, vehicles with plate numbers ending in 1 or 2 on Monday, 3 or 4 on Tuesday, and 5 or 6 on Wednesday are not allowed on major thoroughfares from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Normal coding rules will resume on Thursday, Nosares said.
