No number coding in Makati on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday
The city government of Makati on Monday (April 10) announced the lifting of the number coding scheme on April 13 (Maundy Thursday) and April 14 (Good Friday) in observance of the Lenten Season.
City spokesperson, lawyer Michael Camiña said number coding will remain in effect until Wednesday, April 12, and resume on Monday, April 17.
“Since Monday to Wednesday are still regular work days, we will only lift the number coding scheme for vehicles in Makati this Thursday and Friday,” Camiña said.
With a daytime population of around four million, Makati has taken a strict policy against suspending number coding on regular work days to avoid aggravating traffic congestion in the city.
Camiña also advised motorists to take note of road closures during the Holy Week, particularly in Barangays Poblacion and Guadalupe Viejo where “kubols” or “kalbaryos” are put up as part of Makati’s Lenten tradition.
