Motorists told: Brace for INC event
At least 500,000 Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) members are expected to descend on Manila on Sunday for the sect’s fund-raising activity.
The event would lead to the closure of roads.
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority had already closed both lanes of Roxas Boulevard from Buendia to P. Burgos for the event which would start at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and end at the Quirino Grandstand.
Motorists would have to take alternate routes. While service roads on Roxas Boulevard would remain open, motorists were advised to avoid areas that would be affected by the INC event until late Sunday afternoon.
The event was also expected to cause traffic bottlenecks in parts of Diosdado Macapagal Avenue, Buendia and Taft Avenue. —Jovic Yee
