MMDA conducts clearing operations along Mabuhay Lanes for scheduled partial closure of Kamuning Flyover


The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) today conducted sidewalk and road clearing operations along the identified alternate routes in preparation for the scheduled partial closure for the by-phase retrofitting of the southbound portion of EDSA-Kamuning Flyover in Quezon City.

MMDA Assistant General Manager for Operations Asec. David Angelo Vargas led the operations, together with Sidewalk Clearing Operations Group (SCOG) head Director Francisco Martinez, and Special Operations Group-Strike Force (SOG-SF) Officer-in-Charge Gabriel Go.

According to Vargas, the sidewalk and road clearing operations were necessary in ensuring that all alternate routes are accessible and obstruction-free for motorists.

In the road clearing operations at Panay Ave., Scout Borromeo, Sgt. Esguerra, Samar Ave., and other locations within the area, a total of 105 vehicles were issued violation tickets for illegal parking, while four vehicles were impounded.

“The SOG-SF has conducted information campaign in the area days prior to today’s clearing operations. We have advised motorists as well as residents to avoid parking on sidewalks and roads,” said Vargas.

Penalties are P 1,000 for attended illegal parking and P 2,000 for unattended illegally parked vehicles. Towed vehicles were brought to the MMDA impounding area in Tumana, Marikina City.

Aside from the road clearing operations against illegally parked vehicles, sidewalk clearing operations were also carried out to address illegal vending, stall/store extensions, sidewalk encroachment, and illegal dumping of garbage that may hinder the use of sidewalks by pedestrians and that may cause traffic congestion.

The partial lane closure of the southbound portion of the EDSA-Kamuning flyover will start on May 1.
