The Metro Manila Development Authority will deploy more than 2,000 traffic enforcers starting October 27 to ensure an orderly observance of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day on November 1 and 2, respectively.

MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia said Chairman Danilo Lim banned all traffic enforcers from taking a leave or being absent when “Oplan Undas 2018” between October 27 to November 3.

The number coding scheme is suspended on November 1 and 2, which are declared special non-working holidays.

Major cemeteries under the MMDA’s watch are Manila North in Manila City, Manila South in Makati City, Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City, Bagbag Public Cemetery in Quezon City, and Manila Memorial Park in Paranaque City.

Aside from helping in traffic management, Garcia said the MMDA will set up tents for Public Assistance Centers at the four cemeteries and dispatch ambulances to provide emergency medical services to cemetery goers.
