Off limits na! Bistek approves truck ban in Sauyo Road
Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista has signed into law an ordinance banning trucks and other heavy motor vehicles from using the stretch of Sauyo Road and Old Sauyo Road.
The move, which is in accordance with the modified truck ban policy of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), is meant to ease congestion along Sauyo Road and Old Sauyo Road, from Mindanao Avenue to Dahlia Street in Barangay Fairview and Quirino Highway in Novaliches.
The truck ban will be implemented from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Sauyo Road and Old Sauyo Road are being used by motorists as alternate routes and short cut to and from Tandang Sora, Mindanao Avenue, North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), Fairview, Quirino Highway, Commonwealth Avenue, Caloocan City and Bulacan.
As provided for under Ordinance 2572-2017 introduced by Councilor Eric Medina, violators shall be dealt with a fine of P5,000 or an imprisonment of one year or both at the discretion of the court.
The city’s Department of Public Order and Safety (BPLO), QC Police District – Traffic Department and the MMDA have been tasked to oversee the strict implementation of the ordinance.
Meanwhile, motor vehicles owned by or under contract with the government will be provided exemption from the city’s truck ban policy along Sauyo Road.#
