MANILA, Philippines — The city of Manila will implement several road closures and traffic rerouting this Wednesday (Nov. 18)  and Thursday (Nov. 19) to ensure the safety of the APEC delegates’ spouses, who would tour around the city on Thursday.

“We can say that this is one of the most historic events to be held in the country and in our city. We should make sure that everyone will be safe,” said Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada in a statement.


The tour, dubbed as “walk through time,” would take the spouses to Intramuros in Manila. President Benigno Aquino’s four sisters would be their hosts.

The following are the roads that would be affected by the closures starting 8 p.m. on Wednesday, November 18.


· Muelle del Rio to Postal Road

· Magallanes Drive to P. Burgos

· Anda to P. Burgos

· Victoria to P. Burgos

· Lagusnilad to P. Burgos

· Finance to Taft Avenue

· Ma. Orosa to TM Kalaw


· Bonifacio Drive to 25th Street

· Anda Circle to A. Soriano

The traffic unit advised motorists coming from Jones Bridge to go straight to P. Burgos, then straight to Taft Avenue to point of destination. While those from Muelle del Rio should turn left to Postal Road, left again to Magallanes Drive Extension, then right to P. Burgos.

All vehicles coming from the McArthur and Quezon Bridge are advised pass through P. Burgos street to Lagusnilad, then straight to Taft.

Vehicles coming from Ayala Boulevard could either turn right or left to Taft. Those coming from eastbound of TM Kalaw should turn left to Taft Avenue while vehicles coming from A. Delgado must turn left to 25th Street, then make another left to Bonifacio Drive.
