MANILA, Nov. 4 — Heavy traffic is expected within the vicinity of the University of Santo Tomas (UST), the venue of the 2011 Bar examinations, particularly España Blvd., Lacson St., Padre Noval St. and Dapitan St., on Bar examination dates Nov. 6, 13, 20, and 27, 2011, according to an advisory of the UST.

The heavy traffic may even extend to Quiapo and Blumentritt.

The advisory also said that all UST gates, except the Lacson gate and the P. Noval Gate, which are nearest to the UST Hospital and to the Santisimo Rosario Church, respectively, will be closed on the said dates.

A parallel advisory from the Office of Associate Justice Roberto Abad, Chair of the 2011 Committee on Bar Examinations, said that the España gates will be open only to Bar candidates and Bar personnel; the P. Noval gates for parishioners and only during mass hours; the Lacson gates, for hospital patrons; and the Dapitan gate only for lunchtime.

Street parking "along the corners of UST" would not be allowed also.

The Bar advisory also announced that Bar examinees assigned to Room 412 of St. Raymund's Building (AB Commerce) will be transferred to Room 116 of the same building.

Likewise, it also reiterated the ban against Bar operations within UST's vicinity such as the setting up of banners, streamers, or tents "along the corners of UST," loud music or any kind of noise, and loitering.
