Traffic gridlock hits Roxas Boulevard

Trucks have turned Roxas Boulevard in Manila into a huge parking lot amid the slow processing of shipments in Port Area.

The Philippine Ports Authority said the strong winds and heavy rainfall resulted in the slow processing of containers at the Port of Manila. Heavy traffic was also observed in R10 and other roads going to the area.

Manila Mayor Francisco Domagoso, in a social media post, advised motorists to avoid plying Roxas Boulevard, R10 and other roads leading to the Port of Manila.

He said the traffic jam in the area could last until Friday evening.

“Inaasahan po namin na tatagal ang trapikong ito hanggang mamayang hapon, at maaari ring abutin hangang mamayang gabi,” Domagoso said.

The mayor also urged truck drivers to avoid completing their journey towards the pier if they were still outside the city.

Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) General Manager Jay Daniel Santiago was quoted as saying that port operations at the South Harbor had stopped since Thursday afternoon because on the inclement weather as Typhoon Hanna enhanced southwest monsoon.

Santiago said wind speeds of up to 16 meters per second had forced the port to stop using its cranes.

Intermittent wind speed patterns and uncertainty in safety meant operations at the South Harbor were suspended at the discretion of operators, Santiago said.

Reports said that no ships were coming in or going out of Manila Port Area and that all cointainers were on standby until ships resume trips.
