MMDA also stressed that during this period of time, the drivers also need to brace themselves carefully. The roads surrounding the New Clark Athletics Stadium will receive an intensive traffic volume which is especially EDSA and other main thoroughfares.

Also, the public, as well as private sectors, are also advised not to violate the yellow lane for a reason that, it will separate the road for a minimum of 114 buses with SEA Games delegates and their convoys to the venue.

“Convoys will use the yellow lane and inserts towards flyover, and tunnel/underpass while traveling along EDSA. Motorists are advised to avoid the yellow lane and give way to the convoy” 

With the effort to resolve the foreseen situation, traffic personnel will simultaneously be deployed in some major locations to facilitate the convoys and support motorists.
