White Plains zipper lane on EDSA anniv




The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will open a zipper lane along the eastbound direction of White Plains Avenue in Quezon City on Thursday, 25 February, for the celebration of the 35th EDSA People Power Revolution.

The zipper lane or counterflow scheme will be opened in front of Camp Aguinaldo Gate 5 and will accommodate the volume of vehicles going to EDSA.

Plastic barriers and traffic cones shall be installed to guide motorists on the use of the zipper lane along White Plains 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., but there will be no road closure.

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

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

The MMDA shall observe the minimum health protocols set by Inter-Agency Task Force, such as physical distancing, and the mandatory wearing of mask and face shield among its personnel, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease amid the general community quarantine status in Metro Manila.
