Heads Up: Payday Weekend Traffic Might Be Worse in These Areas

For road repairs!

(SPOT.ph) Payday weekend is usually a double-edged sword for people in Metro Manila. Sure, you finally get your hard-earned bread, but you gotta work through hellish traffic to spend it, too. If you're really hankering to treat yourself this weekend—which, btw, you deserve—then you might want to avoid these roads. Metro Manila Development Authority announced a traffic advisory for road repairs and reblocking in several areas from July 12,11 p.m. to July 15, 5 a.m.
