Quezon City and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority personnel on Tuesday conducted a clearing operation at Balintawak Market and other areas to allow the smoother flow of traffic.

The city’s Department of Public Order and Safety, acting on the orders of Mayor Joy Belmonte, with the help of the MMDA would continue to remove all forms of obstructions in the city to minimize traffic woes and ensure the safety of both pedestrians and motorists.

The operation was carried out for two straight days as the city government vowed to maintain law and order in the city.

In Tuesday’s clearing operation, illegal sidewalk vendors were removed from the front and the back of Balintawak Market.

Apart from asking vendors to move elsewhere, the clearing teams also picked up piles of garbage left on the roadside.

There were no reports of any untoward incidents during the early morning operation which started at 4:30 a.m.

On Monday, the MMDA and the city government towed and issued citation tickets to the owners of illegally parked vehicles on East Avenue and nearby areas.

At least 14 vehicles were towed, including ambulances illegally parked in front of Philippine Heart Center.
