As part of MMDA’s clearing operations, business owners and operators in the area would be informed that vehicles parked illegally in front of their establishments would be towed and impounded if these are not removed.
MMDA is set continue its operation along Roxas Boulevard's service road up to T.M. Kalaw in Manila
MMDA General Manager Tim Orbos as quoted as saying “Like what we did in Baclaran, we had informed them that the service road should be cleared of obstruction to allow the unhampered flow of traffic. They have no choice but to comply.”
MMDA personnel will dismantle road obstructions, such as stalls, bollards and unauthorized signages.
With all the road obstructions and structures cleared, motorists can now use the four lanes of the service road from Vito Cruz up to T.M. Kalaw. The agency also plans to clear the whole stretch Roxas Boulevard from Baclaran to T.M. Kalaw, which is about 6-kilometers long.

Orbos added that in the long term before the year ends, the MMDA eyes clearing Balintawak, Cubao, Quiapo, Alabang, Monumento and Divisoria in order to decrease congestion in Metro Manila.
“We have been informing them of President Duterte’s directive to decongest not only Roxas Blvd. but also the rest of the roads and streets in Metro Manila to ease the traffic condition. We want to continue these operations and to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak, and while we have the momentum on our side,” said Orbos.
