Traffic Rerouting Scheme for SONA and the Iglesia Ni Cristo's 95th Founding Anniversary, Monday, July 27, 2009

26 July 2009

This is the traffic rerouting scheme that will be adopted tomorrow, Monday, July 27, 2009. 

Closed to traffic from 7am to 12 midnight are the following thoroughfares:
Roxas Boulevard, northbound and southbound from P. Burgos to P. Ocampo St.
P. Ocampo St. from Roxas Boulevard to Taft Avenue
Adriatico St. from P. Ocampo up to Quirino Avenue
P. Ocampo St. is perhaps better known as Vito Cruz where the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex. This, I understand, is where the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) brethren from the Manila North Area will congregate tomorrow for their 95th founding anniversary celebration.  Those from the Manila East Area will hold their celebrations at the Araneta Coliseum.

This report by Igan Arnold Clavio actually covers only the Manila area primarily for the INC's 95th founding anniversary celebration. 

I'll try to get hold of the traffic rerouting scheme related to SONA and post it here as soon as I can. This will affect the areas near the Batasan area and Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City.

Traffic Rerouting During the 95th Anniversary of Iglesia ni Cristo

The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), in coordination with the local government units of the City of Manila, Pasay City, and Quezon City, will implement rerouting of vehicular traffic within the vicinity and areas leading to Rizal Memorial Coliseum and Araneta Coliseum on July 27, 2009 in line with the celebration of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) of their 95th Anniversary.

The Araneta Center will be closed to traffic starting noon until the end of activities at around 9:00PM. Members of the INC who will flock to the Araneta Coliseum will be allowed to use all parking areas located within Araneta Center and are advised to use the following drop-off points:

EDSA infront of Farmer’s Plaza;
Aurora Blvd. infront of Isetann; and
P. Tuazon Blvd. near Ali Mall.

At the celebration which will be simultaneously held at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum, in order to accommodate the large influx of people in the area, the following areas will be closed to vehicular traffic:

Roxas Boulevard, from P. Burgos St. to P. Ocampo St.;
P. Ocampo St.,from Roxas Blvd. to Taft Avenue; and 
Adriatico St., from P. Ocampo St. to Pres. Quirino Ave.

The whole stretch of the Southbound lane of Roxas Boulevard from P. Ocampo St. to Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue (formerly Buendia Ave.) will be closed to serve as parking area for vehicles of INC members that can no longer be accommodated in the parking areas around Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

With the closure of the identified areas, affected motorists are advised to take the following alternative routes:

Southbound vehicles in Roxas Blvd. must take a left at P. Burgos St., right at Ma. Orosa St., right at T.M. Kalaw St., then left at M.H. Del Pilar St., and finally left at Quirino Ave. towards Taft Ave. to point of destination; and

Northbound vehicles in Roxas Blvd. must take right at Sen. Gil Puyat Ave. or at Pres. Osmena Highway to point of destination.

Motorists are further advised that only two-wheeled vehicles will be allowed to pass along Buendia Extension going to the Manila Film Center and along Sen. Vicente Sotto St. going to Star City, Aliw Theater, and CCP.

I don't know how I missed this one; it's been out for quite a while.  It's Mike Enriquez's report on the traffic rerouting scheme on July 27, 2009 because of the SONA and INC 95th founding anniversary celebration.
