(SPOT.ph) The cleanup of Manila Bay is long overdue by now, but we're glad to see the government finally initiating the much-needed rehabilitation. However, if you're heading to Manila this weekend, you might want to take note: According to an advisory released by Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Danilo Lim, some portions of Roxas Boulevard will be closed to traffic on January 27, Sunday, to give way to the launch of the Manila Bay rehabilitation as well as the Fiesta Del Sto. Niño happening in the area.
From 5 a.m. to 9 a.m., the south-bound section of Roxas Boulevard from T.M. Kalaw to President Quirino Avenue would be closed to motorists for the launch of the Manila Bay rehabilitation project headed by Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
Meanwhile, from 3 p.m. onwards, the northbound section from P. Burgos to V. Sotto will be closed for the Fiesta Del Sto. Niño.
Motorists from A. Bonifacio Drive or R-10 are advised to turn left at P. Burgos Avenue or at T. M. Kalaw, then right at M. H. Del Pilar or Taft Avenue to destination.
