UP reroutes traffic

MANILA, Philippines ? The academic oval, the circumferential road that connects University Avenue of the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City to Katipunan Ave. is now a one-way street.

University officials put into effect the new traffic scheme on March 26. The oval is bounded by the Administration Building, lagoon, the university library and the Sunken Garden.

Vehicles coming from Don Mariano Marcos Ave. and University Ave. must now turn right on Roxas Ave., passing the Faculty Center, Palma Hall, Palma Hall Annex, the College of Education and Vinzons Hall.

Vehicles from Katipunan must turn right on OsmeŮa Ave. where the College of Engineering, UP Theater, Carillon and the College of Music are located.

Roces Street, which cuts through the oval and connects the Faculty Center and College of Engineering, is still two-way.

Dr. Cynthia Grace C. Gregorio, vice chancellor for community affairs, said the one-way scheme was the initial phase in the implementation of the UP Traffic Management Plan.

The plan aims to lessen the number of vehicles passing through the university, subsequently reducing pollution and risks for UP students.

Ultimately, she said, the goal was a ?car-less oval,? as recommended by the UP Transport Committee.

Gregorio told the Inquirer that the one-way scheme was a result of a study conducted by the committee. Under the scheme, the university oval was divided into two: an outer lane for motor vehicles and an inner lane designated as a bike way.

Gregorio said the university assigned people in critical intersections and junctions, such as in front of Quezon Hall (Administration Building), to direct motorists.
