MANILA, Philippines — Traffic flow is expected to remain normal on Tuesday, Feb. 25, but motorists and commuters can expect a slight buildup on Edsa during the 34th anniversary commemoration of the People Power Revolution on Tuesday, Feb. 25.

Bong Nebrija, traffic czar of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), said Monday that the traffic buildup could be expected during the program for the anniversary, which runs from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Edsa People Power Monument at the corner of Edsa and White Plains Avenue.

“We won’t have any road closures as we don’t want to disrupt the regular routine of our fellow Filipinos on that holiday. Maybe just expect a buildup when the program starts,” he said, talking partly in Filipino, in a press conference in Camp Karingal in Quezon City.

“Tomorrow, we will perceive it as a normal traffic flow in Edsa,” he added.
