Vehicles transporting relief goods exempted from truck ban, color coding, says MMDA

All vehicles delivering relief goods and materials to identified relief repacking centers for affected victims of super typhoon “Yolanda” are exempted from truck ban and Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program (UVVRP) or number coding until the end of the month.

This was according to Metropolitan Manila Development Authority General Manager Corazon Jimenez, in a memorandum signed by MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino, the exemption covers trucks and other heavy vehicles ferrying relief goods to three identified relief repacking centers: Ninoy Aquino Stadium, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) relief station located at NAIA Road, Pasay City and Air 21 Warehouse in Old MIA Road, Barangay Vitalez, Parañaque City.
She added that the exemption from the two traffic programs implemented in the metropolis will be until Nov. 30.
Jimenez said the exemption would help in the faster delivery of much needed relief goods in areas worst hit by the super typhoon.
The modified truck ban policy is implemented between 6 to 10 a.m. and 5 to 10 p.m. every day except Sundays and holidays.
UVVRP, on the other hand, bans vehicles from major thoroughfares once a week depending on the last digit of their registration plates.
The number coding aims to lessen the number of vehicles in the metropolis by barring vehicles from major thoroughfares from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
