Motorists passing through the Bicutan Interchange of the South Luzon Expressway surely have found it maddening to be tied up in traffic at any hour of the day in this area. To ease up the worsening condition, Parañaque City will enforce the Unified Vehicle Volume Reduction Program or the number coding scheme, as well as the truck ban on certain roads in the city starting Thursday, December 1, Thursday.
In a release by the City Information Office, traffic schemes will be effected on the following streets: 1) San Antonio Ave, Pres. Aguinaldo St., Dominique Savio St., Michael Rua St. and France St. in Barangay (Brgy) Don Bosco; 2) E. Rodriguez St. in Brgy Moonwalk, Doña Soledad Ave and Doña Soledad Ext. in Brgy. Don Bosco; 3) East Service Road from Dr. A. Santos Ave. up to FTI, and West Service Road from DASA up to Merville Park Subdivision Paranaque portion.
The UVVP bans vehicles with license plates ending in 1 and 2 on said streets on Mondays; 3 and 4 on Tuesdays; 5 and 6 on Wednesdays; 7 and 8 on Thursdays; and 9 and 0 on Fridays from 7:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m. with 'window hours' from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Said rule does not apply on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
Likewise, the truck ban for heavy motor vehicles with gross weight exceeding 3,600 kg used for transporting goods or materials will take effect between 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily.
