As we all know, today, the 30th SEA Games will make its last day in the Philippines. With the imposing of the “Stop and Go scheme” earlier, the very first phase of the event has not caused so many problems to the traffic overall.
That’s why when it comes to an end, we definitely have to worry about the worsening traffic. Foresee this, an excessively important announcement has been made by MMDA!
MMDA: Heavy traffic expected on SEA Games closing event and what to be cautious
The closing ceremony is going to begin at 5 PM at the New Clark Athletics Stadium. For the event, all delegates from many places in the country are expected to show up and will join the traffic throughout the day. For details, the MMDA stated that the delegates will make their ways to the Stadium “after lunchtime” yet, there is still no exact time.

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.
