The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority on Thursday said it would deploy more than 1,600 traffic personnel from April 17 to 22 on major thoroughfares, transportation terminals, and other key areas in Metro Manila to manage traffic during Holy Week.

Under its Oplan Metro Alalay Semana Santa, a “no day-off and no absent” policy will also be enforced on traffic personnel from Wednesday to Sunday, said Roy Taguinod, MMDA Traffic Discipline Office director for enforcement.

“Traffic personnel will be fielded to traffic chokepoint areas in Metro Manila, such as near bus terminals, roads leading to seaports, harbors, and airports, and major churches,” Taguinod said.

MMDA personnel will also conduct random breathalyzer tests on bus drivers. Those who fail these tests will not be allowed to drive.

Clearing of illegal vendors from sidewalks within the vicinity of major churches, where devotees make their Holy Week pilgrimage, will also be done this week.
