Commuters, Here's Where Traffic Will Be Worse This Weekend

Due to road repairs along EDSA, C5, and Batasan Road.

(SPOT.phWith just a few more days left before Christmas, you can bet traffic will be even heavier than usual. Weekends will see the rush of people going to malls or, more likely, Christmas bazaars to do their holiday shopping. Many would argue that Manila dwellers have become immune to the traffic, but that doesn't mean it's not frustrating. If you have plans for the weekend, you might want to avoid passing through some sections of EDSAC5, and Batasan Road because the Department of Public Works and Highways just announced this week's scheduled road repairs. Road reblocking will start from 11 p.m. of December 7 to 5 a.m. of December 10.
