Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benhur Abalos has ordered the removal of obstructions at the ground level of three EDSA flyovers to maintain orderliness.

Abalos ordered the removal and clearing of all types of clutters and obstructions at EDSA-Kamuning, Timog and Quezon Avenue, including illegally-parked and abandoned vehicles, mostly involved in accidents.

“Hindi puwedeng gamiting impounding ito. This is a national highway… kalye ito. Maski sino, bawal gumamit nito. We will coordinate with the proper authorities on this matter,” he said.

No parking and tow away signages will be placed on the said areas.

Abalos also appealed to the vehicle owners to refrain from parking on the ground level of flyovers, saying these should be open spaces.

“I will make sure that violators will be sanctioned and issued violation tickets for illegal parking,” he said.
