Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco has ordered the implementation of a one-way traffic scheme in the west coast to pave the way for the completion of the road widening and rehabilitation projects of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
Her directive was contained in Exective Order (EO) No. 486-2019, which she issued on July 29 and concurred by the Sangguniang Panlungsod Resolution 981 on July 30.
The city government said the EO directs the execution of a one-way traffic scheme along a portion of Zamboanga-Labuan Road, Datu Rajah Muda Mandi Road, Tabujur Taupan Road, and the entire stretch of Dona Mamerta Ledesma (Baliwasan Grande) Road for the duration of the road rehabilitation project and construction of a drainage system.
The one-way traffic scheme will be implemented 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays, it said.
Exempted from the termporary one-way traffic scheme are vehicles responding to emergency situations such as ambulances, fire trucks, and police/military vehicles while in hot pursuit of criminal elements. #
