MANILA, Philippines — Barangays in the City of Manila have been told to keep the Mabuhay Lanes clear, or free from any obstruction or any street vendor.

The Manila Public Information Office (MPIO) reminded the city’s barangay officials that they must keep their lanes open and clear on a non-negotiable basis.

The Mabuhay Lanes project is a program of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority that reduces traffic congestion in Metro Manila’s major thoroughfares by providing alternate routes for motorists.

In Manila, at least 18 major and minor roads are included in the said scheme.

“The Manila City government reminded all of the city’s 896 barangay chiefs to keep Mabuhay Lanes free of obstruction, telling them that the policy remains ‘non-negotiable’,” MPIO said.

“In a memorandum, Manila Barangay Bureau (MBB) director Romeo Bagay informed all barangay officials and workers to implement ‘No Obstruction’ and ‘No Vendor’ policies in the following Mabuhay Lanes,” it added.

Among the roads that form part of the Mabuhay Lanes, which the city government mentioned are:

Abad Santos Avenue
Juan Luna (Asuncion St. to Recto Ave.)
Soler
Blumentritt (Antipolo St. to Aurora Blvd.)
Raon
Taft (Vito Cruz St. to Ayala Bridge)
Ayala Ave. (Taft Ave. to C. Palanca Sr. St.)
Palanca (P. Casal St. to Plaza Lacson)
Nicolas Zamora (Tayuman St. to Moriones St.)
Moriones (Nicolas Zamora St. to R-10)
Escolta (Plaza Cervantes to Plaza Sta. Cruz)
Recto (Legarda St. to Asuncion St.)
Carriedo
Pedro Gil
Padre Faura
Angel Linao
Paz (Pedro Gil St. to Escoda St.)
A. Lacson

MPIO said that Bagay warned barangay officials that failure to comply with the directive could lead to administrative cases and the issuance of show-cause orders.

“Insufficient responses to show cause orders shall result to the filing of appropriate administrative cases’ pursuant to Section 60(c) of Republic Act No. 7160 or the Local Government Code of 1991,” MPIO said.

“The implementation of the non-negotiable policy is among the directives of Manila City Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso to decongest the nation’s capital and ensure the smooth flow of foot and vehicular traffic along streets and major thoroughfares,” it added.
