Heavy traffic expected in Pasig due to INC event on June 28
MANILA, Philippines – Motorists and commuters should expect heavy traffic in areas surrounding the PhilSports Arena (ULTRA) in Pasig City on Tuesday, June 28, due to an evangelical mission by the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC).
INC members will gather for the "Lingap Pamamahayag" event at the PhilSports Arena, with officials and delegates expected to arrive at the venue around noontime.
Authorities warned the public to expect heavy traffic in the following streets:
- Captain Henry Javier Street
- St Martin Street
- Meralco Avenue
- Lanuza Avenue
- Julia Vargas Avenue
- St Paul Road
Streets surrounding the PhilSports Arena have been designated as parking areas, especially for buses that will bring INC members to the event.
Commuters and motorists are advised to take alternate routes.
Traffic rerouting and parking plans are specified in this Facebook post from the Pasig City government:
Just last week, the INC held a "Lingap Pamamahayag" event at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay City, with motorists also warned of heavy traffic in the area.
Then last May, traffic slowed down along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City after a stretch of the highway was closed for a whole-day outreach mission. – Rappler.com
