The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is set to open a zipper lane along White Plains Avenue in Quezon City on Thursday (Feb.25) for the celebration of the 35th EDSA People Power Revolution.

In a traffic advisory on Tuesday, the MMDA said the zipper lane will be placed along the eastbound directions of White Plains Avenue, with a zipper lane or counterflow scheme to be opened in front of Camp Aguinaldo Gate 5 to accommodate vehicles going to Edsa.

To guide motorists on the use of the zipper lane, it said plastic barriers and traffic cones will be installed along White Plains Avenue and at the sidewalk along Edsa in front of the People Power Monument.

“A simple and short program will be held at the People Power Monument at 8 a.m. (on Thursday) but there will be no road closure,” the MMDA said.

As part of its traffic management plan, the MMDA, in coordination with the Philippine National Police and the Quezon City government, will deploy traffic marshals to manage traffic flow along White Plains Avenue and other areas of concern as early as 4 a.m. on Thursday.

“Road clearing operations will also be conducted to remove illegally-parked vehicles at the areas of concern, including Temple Drive and EDSA Shrine,” the MMDA said.

To ensure the safety of the public, it said minimum health protocols set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases will be observed such as physical distancing and the mandatory wearing of face mask and face shield for all of its personnel. (PNA)
