The truck ban in major roads in Metro Manila will remain suspended until further notice, the MMDA said Friday, citing the need to support the further reopening of the economy.
The suspension of the truck ban will prevent delays in deliveries of essential goods according to the MMDA. Also suspended is the uniform light truck ban in EDSA from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. and in Shaw Boulevard from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., the MMDA said.
“Pinapaalalahanan naman ng ahensya ang mga truck drivers na sumunod sa mga regulasyon at manatili lamang sila sa itinalagang lane upang hindi maging magulo ang daloy ng trapiko sa Kamaynilaan,” the MMDA said on Facebook.
