Nonetheless, these roads were passable to all types of vehicles, Puya said.

Meanwhile, traffic was heavy along the northbound lane of EDSA, with the bumper-to-bumper line of cars starting from Malibay, Pasay all the way to Santolan, caused by the implementation of the Yellow Lane Policy along EDSA, Chris Almeron of MMDA’s Metrobase said.
