In accordance with President Rodrigo Duterte's order to reclaim all public highways, the Taguig City government has embarked on extensive activities to clear the city streets and obstruction sidewalks.

A joint team, composed of Taguig’s Traffic Management Office, Public Order and Safety Office, Market Management Office, Business Permits and Licensing Office, General Services Office, and Solid Waste Management Office, City Engineering Office, Public Transport Office and Barangay Affairs Office together with the Philippine National Police and the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, conducted the operations to clear the roads of illegal structures, illegal vending and illegally-parked vehicles.

Mayor Lino Cayetano signed an executive order in Taguig City immediately after taking office, directing all city departments to "intensify their efforts to guarantee pedestrian and vehicular mobility, and access to public service operations using government highways and other comparable facilities" in order to guarantee public safety.

Cayetano said Taguig has been clearing the city’s roads for the past years to provide a “safe and healthy” community.

“As it is, Taguig is already a pedestrian-centered city, but we want to make it even more so. We want to make Taguig an even more walkable city,” Cayetano said.

“Walkable city, after all, is a safe and healthy city,” he added.

Upon his assumption of office, Cayetano has said making Taguig a safer and healthier city was of prime importance to his administration, making it part of his 10-point agenda.

“Our leadership has been consistent with its mandate in regulating the use of and access to streets, highways and public roads and has regularly implemented clearing of all public roads in the city of all obstructions that may endanger the safety and impede pedestrian and vehicular traffic flow,” he said.

For the past years, Taguig City has conducted five to seven weekly clearing activities to rid the roads and sidewalks of obstructions.
