MANILA, Philippines — Traffic buildup is expected in several roads in Metro Manila this weekend (March 15 to 17, 2024) due to the transport of tunnel boring machines  for the construction of the Metro Manila Subway Project (MMSP).

According to the DOTr, the following roads will experience a slow down on March 15, 9 p.m. to March 16 at 4 a.m. and March 16 at 9 p.m. to March 17 at 4 a.m.:
