Dear Valued Customers,
Please be advised that the 2019 South East Asian (SEA) Games will be held in the Philippines from November 30 to December 11, 2019. In line with this, kindly expect some delays in the delivery and transportation of cargoes especially on locations that will be affected by the foreseen traffic jam.
While the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has been making all the necessary preparations to alleviate the imminent heavy traffic during the festivities, they also announced that a stop-and-go traffic scheme will be implemented when the games begin to ensure that athletes and delegates reach their destinations on time. This scheme is expected to affect the flow of traffic in the two-week event that will happen as we welcome the Christmas season.
MMDA also said that it will deploy 2,000 personnel across Metro Manila, and patrol motorcycles, mobile-car escorts, ambulances, and tow trucks will be on standby.
The agency has also identified all potential choke-point areas during the games.
