Metro Manila, travel, things to do, weather

The middle of September is a normal week for most commuters and tourists in Metro Manila. The biggest thing to anticipate this week might be the consistent downpours that can lead to thunderstorms. Along with the bad weather, the condition of the traffic in Metro Manila will also remain slow-moving and heavy due to the upcoming holidays. However, projects like road clearing and prohibition of illegal parking methods are implemented to improve commuting. To get the complete details on these travel updates, read on.

Weather: More frequent thunderstorms to occur in Metro Manila

Weather this week is predicted to be generally rainy and wet, so expect less sunshine in Metro Manila during the day. Along with expected thunderstorms, the temperature for the entire week is anticipated to range between 30 to 31°C [1].

Roads during rainy days are expected to be slippery and accident-prone, so motorists are advised to be more cautious when driving. Flight cancellations are also expected to be frequent during heavy downpours. Check the social media pages and website of airlines for updates on flight cancellations. During the rainy season, people are also more exposed to health risks such as leptospirosis and dengue—especially those living in flood-prone areas. Make sure to avoid exposing yourself to floodwater, especially if you have wounds on your feet and to put on insect repellents.

Priority roads in Quezon City now clear from obstruction

Several “priority roads” in Quezon City have been cleared from obstruction. Some of these roads are Culiat in Old Balara, Quirino Highway, Susana Road, and General Luis Street [2]. This comes as a result of the local government’s program to get rid of illegal vendors along several roads in Metro Manila. The clearing operation ensures roads will be more accessible to commuters and residents. About 60 to 70 percent of the priority roads have been cleared.

MMDA: ‘One-side’ parking is illegal

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) reminds motorists that ‘one-side’ parking is not allowed if there’s no ordinance involved. Previously, several areas in Quezon City such as Barangay Bagong Lipunan and inner roads along Camp Crame allowed one-side parking, but the MMDA cleared that it is generally not allowed, especially now that clearing operations are being made in Metro Manila [3].
