THE CITY Transportation and Traffic Management Office (CTTMO) will close 21 intersections from traffic for the Indak-Indak and Pamulak sa Kadayawan float parade

CTTMO head Dionisio Abude said during the iSpeak Media forum that they have already submitted to the Sangguniang Panlungsod the routes for closures for the Kadayawan Festival.

These are based on the parade route provided by the City Tourism and Operations Office.

Naa ta’y expanded regulated closure na mag-start along Jacinto corner Aurora, Pag-asa, corner Padre Gomez, corner Padre Faura then Zamora. Regulated sila kay kung dili mu-cross diretso sa Roxas so pwede sila makasulod pero kutob ra sila didto (We will have expanded regulated closure, starting with Jacinto Corner Aurora, Pag-asa, Corner Padre Gomez, Corner Padre Faura, and then Zamora. This is regulated because if they will not cross Roxas Avenue, they will be allowed to enter the road but only until the closed intersection),” he said.

Abude said they saw the need to expand the road closure because, in the past, vehicles that entered Jacinto tended to be trapped due to the closure of Roxas Boulevard toward CM Recto.

He added that the 21 intersections that will be closed are the ones leading to Roxas Boulevard for Pichon: the corners of Bolton, Anda, and Pelayo; for Mabini: Aurora Quezon, Padre Gomez, Pag-asa, and Padre Faura. Also included are the corners of Ramon Magsaysay and Camus.

Abude said the areas for the Indak-Indak exhibition are Veterans Rotunda, located on the corner of C. Bangoy St., Ramon Magsaysay Ave., and Roxas Ave, the corner near Apo View and San Pedro Square.

“With the duration of the activities sa Kadayawan, naa ta’y 980 ka personnel (For the duration of the Kadayawan Activities we have a total of 937 personnel),” Abude said.

He said that the CTTMO forms part of the integrated safety and security plan for Kadayawan.
