PNP-HPG will be manning various areas in Metro Manila

As traffic is expected to worsen at the approach of the Christmas weekend and the lifting of the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program (UVVRP) or the number-coding scheme, the government is taking extra measures to ensure that motorists will be assisted and that major choke points in Metro Manila will be managed properly.

The Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG) will be deploying personnel on roads going to and from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminals in Pasay City in order to manage traffic and for peace and order as Filipinos are expected to fly in and out to celebrate the Holiday season with their loved ones.

Aside from the NAIA area in Pasay City, PNP-HPG will also assist in traffic management along C-5, Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City, and other major thoroughfares in Metro Manila except for EDSA.
