THE Baguio City Police Office Traffic Management Branch deployed additional personnel to man major thoroughfares to ensure a smooth flow of traffic during the Iglesia Ni Cristo medical and dental mission today.
In Monday's executive-legislative meeting, Mayor Mauricio Domogan instructed the BCPO to coordinate with INC officials to ensure parking spaces are available for thousands from the North Luzon provinces coming to Baguio City for the medical mission.
Domogan also lifted the number coding scheme in the city from March 31 to today to accommodate vehicles carrying those seeking medical assistance in today’s INC's Lingap Pamamahayag.
Councilor Joel Alangsab, who chairs the Sangguniang Panlalawigan's Public Utilities and Transportation Committee, said barangays must utilize the available assistance relating organizers assured there is enough aid to be given for all indigent patients in the city’s 128 barangays.
BCPO-TMB head Superintendent Evelio Degay, meanwhile, said road closures started yesterday for both lanes of Lake Drive while Harrison Road is closed as well.
Session Road, Kisad Road, Legarda Road and General Luna Roads will absorb most of the traffic from the closed roads.
Magsaysay and Rimando Road jeepney trunklines are rerouted to Malcolm Square without passing through the closed Harrison Road.
Lower Mabini public utility jeepneys parked at Carantes, Claudio and Lower Mabini Streets including Perfecto Street will be rerouted to Calderon and Diego Silang Streets to their loading areas.
He stressed TMB personnel will manually direct traffic in bottleneck areas and apprehend violators in No Parking areas to ensure smooth flow of vehicular traffic.
Parking areas for buses and private vehicles are at Naguilian Road to Sophia De Veyra Street, Magsaysay Avenue near the INC temple and near Lucban Elementary School and parking facilities at the Old City Auditorium, Hyatt Hotel and Athletic Bowl.
