The City Traffic Management Office (CTMO) defended its decision not to allow passenger multi-cabs to enter Malvar Street.
Engr. Bong Magay said the street is not in the “actual route of the multi-cabs.”
“We previously allowed them to enter the street the past few days because of the traffic congestion in the WesCom Road all the way to Junction 1 as it’s is being repaired,” Magay said.
Magay also denied the claims of some drivers that the traffic enforcers were “selective of vehicles entering the street.”
He said the entry of vehicles is “case to case basis depending on the congestion in the main street.”
“We only remind them and we do not issue any violation tickets to those caught violating the non- entry policy,” he said.
Magay appealed to the drivers to “have more patience with the traffic because the ongoing road repairs is aimed to the city’s road efficiency.”
Meanwhile, he said the city traffic lights are now functioning which helped to alleviate the current traffic congestion in the city.
