UPDATED: Number Coding on Commerce Ave. to formally start this March 13

“There will be no window hours.” (Edited this statement as there now seems to be exemptions. – Ed)

This was the pronouncement of Barangay Ayala Alabang chairman Ruben Baes in a conversation with Alabang Bulletin today as he gave updates on the controversial Number Coding along Commerce Ave.

The update was a reply to numerous inquiries from motorists regularly plying the busy road.

Baes though reiterated that the Number Coding is still on an experimental basis at present and that barangay personnel stationed along the highway would only be giving advisories or warnings.

“Number coding on Commerce Ave. will be fully implemented on March 13, 2017,” he added this week.

Reposting details of the ordinance from one of our early articles below:

Also called “An Ordinance Providing for Vehicle Volume Reduction Along Commerce Ave. Within the Territorial Jurisdiction of Barangay Ayala Alabang, the provision was borne out of the observations that “Commerce Avenue at all times of the day are choked in vehicular traffic with barely-moving vehicles” and the “need to regulate traffic in said avenue to ease flow,” according to the ordinance.

As stated before, the Experimental Number Coding will be implemented from 7am up to 7pm from Monday to Friday — no coding on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

“Residents, schools and other providers entering/exiting the villages will be tolerated, including employees of Alabang Town Center, Madrigal Business Park and Molito,” explained Baes.

Barangay Ayala Alabang jurisdiction along Commerce Ave. is from the barangay marker (after Hyundai from Filinvest) until Daang Hari Road.

The ordinance also called for any motor vehicle not to park much more double park along Commerce Ave.

The following penalties were also drawn up:

First offense – P500
Second offense – P750
Third and succeeding offenses – P1,000

No confiscation of licenses will occur, mentioned Baes, and he said failure to pay the fine will result in a case filed in court.

Again, we will update everyone on new developments and when the trial stage is over and when the real implementation begins.

    Wait so does this mean I can still ply the road on coding days if our office is in Madrigal Business Park? If I’m apprehended I can show my company ID and such for proof?

  2. Rey says:

    What about those not working in ATC, Madrigal and Molito? Health workers going to Ospital ng Muntinlupa from Las Pinas in particular? So they are not “tolerated” since their workplace is not within these areas considering the relatively short distance?

    • AlabangBulletin says:

      We are afraid so. But please still have your ID’s on hand. Enforcer or Barangay personnel might “tolerate”.

  3. Rey says:

    Will the Barangay personnel honor the MMDA exemption certificates to be issued to health professionals?

    My company is located in 2107 Prime St., Madrigal Business Park, Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa and I have an ID to prove it. Does that include me in the tolerable private vehicles passing through Commerce? I was wondering lang kasi I’m in the other side of Madrigal Business Park. Baka magtaka yung mga enforcers kung bakit ako nasa commerce.

    • AlabangBulletin says:

      We are not sure about but you can ask barangay traffic enforcers manning commerce. They will just warn you if you’re a first offender anyway.
