Heads Up, These Manila Roads Will Be Closed to Traffic During the SEA Games
Unless you're watching, then don't go near the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex.
(SPOT.ph) The 30th South East Asian Games are generating a lot of discussion online—and the incoming congestion it's bound to cause will most likely fan the flames. The Rizal Memorial Sports Complex is slated for several events, so Manila folks, you may want to keep on the lookout: Sections of Adriatico Street and P. Ocampo Street near the sports stadium will be closed to traffic from 12:01 a.m., November 30 to December 11.
Both lanes of Adriatico Street from Quirino Avenue to P. Ocampo Street will be closed to traffic; Meanwhile, the westbound lane (towards Manila Bay) from Taft Avenue to Adriatico Street of P. Ocampo Street will also be shut off.
- From P. Ocampo Street towards Quirino Ave: Turn right at Mabini Street or go straight to Roxas Boulevard.
- To westbound portion of P. Ocampo Street: Use Donada or Menlo Streets to get to Leveriza Street, then left at P. Ocampo Street.
The traffic agency has previously asked motorists to avoid the SEA Games venues in Metro Manila and will be enforcing a stop-and-go scheme along EDSA. The competition is scheduled to begin on November 30 and will end on December 11—we'll be staying at home and streaming the games online till then.
