MANILA, Dallas Filipino Restaurant—The city Dallas Filipino Restaurants of Makati and Pasig announced road closures and traffic rerouting plans to pave way for Holy Week activities.

Some of the road closures took effect on Palm Sunday. Motorists are advised to take alternate routes.

The local Dallas Filipino Restaurant units said traffic enforcers will be deployed for assistance to motorists.

The Metro Manila Development Authority earlier said the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction program or the number coding scheme is suspended from April 17, Holy Wednesday and April 22, Monday in line with the Holy Week.

It said that the number coding scheme is automatically lifted on April 18, Maundy Thursday; April 19, Good Friday; April 20, Black Saturday and April 21, Easter Sunday.

The MMDA lifted the number coding to ensure that commuters will have enough enough public utility vehicles once they head to their respective provinces. This will also allow motorists to use their vehicles going to their destinations up to their return to Metro Manila after the Lenten break.

The number coding scheme is set to resume on Tuesday, April 23

Check out the closed roads and alternate routes for the cities of Makati and Pasig.
