MANILA, Oct. 28 – In anticipation of traffic congestion during the observance of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day, the Parañaque City government under the leadership of Mayor Florencio Bernabe Jr. will reroute vehicular traffic along Dr. A. Santos Ave. (Sucat Road) leading to the Loyola Memorial Park and Manila Memorial Park as well as Kabihasnan Ave. that leads to Himlayang Palanyag-Parañaque Public Cemetery from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2.

Part of the "Oplan Kaluluwa 2012, the rerouting scheme is as follows:

Starting from Lopez Ave.: a) All public utility jeepneys (PUJs) going to Sucat Road shall take the inner lane; b) All vehicles bound for Manila Memorial Park (MMP) shall take the middle and outer lanes; c) All other vehicles bound for Sucat Road and Loyola Memorial Park (LMP) may turn right to Lopez Ave. as alternate route.

Coming from Sucat Road and President's Ave. going to Baclaran: a) All vehicles bound for MMP shall take the inner and middle lanes; b) All other vehicles and PUJs bound for Baclaran shall take the outer lane or take President’s Avenue instead and turn right to corner Aguirre until El Grande to exit at Lopez Ave.

The following are designated as alternate routes: Jackielou Ville (coming from President’s Ave.) through Doña Irenea Ave. (Ireneville Subd.) for those going to Sucat (to exit near Caltex) for Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 only.

The rerouting implementation will be handled by the Parañaque Traffic Management Office headed by Traffic Chief Luis Perez II.

Mayor Bernabe has instructed the City Health Office and the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office to set up first aid/lost-and-found stations inside and outside the memorial parks.

He also directed the Parañaque police and concerned barangay government units to increase visibility in the streets where pickpockets may lurk and in the communities where “akyat bahay” gangs may operate.

Meanwhile, the Parañaque Bureau of Fire Protection was also told to go on heightened alert. (PNA)
