MMDA clarifies “crossing” on Alabang-Zapote Road with regard to Number Coding scheme
“Crossing” in AZ Road means just that…crossing.
Following an apprehension by MMDA personnel of an Alabang villager last week for crossing Alabang-Zapote Road, Alabang Bulletin sought to clarify what “crossing” meant in the Unified Vehicle Volume Reduction Program or Number Coding scheme.
It can be recalled that an Inter-Agency Council on Traffic or i-ACT was formed with representation from the Department of Transportation (DOTr), MMDA, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, Land Transportation Office, Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group and the Metro Manila Council.
This agency, sensing no improvements on vehicular traffic in the metro, extended the Number Coding scheme from 7am to 7pm to 7am to 8pm with some roads (those with heavier volume and traffic) not implementing window hours.
Alabang-Zapote Road was one of those roads.
Alabang-Zapote Road traverses from Las Pinas to Muntinlupa.
Las Pinas employs the Number Coding scheme while Muntinlupa does not — now, except for Alabang-Zapote Road (and Commerce Ave. as implemented by Barangay Ayala Alabang).
Part of the announcement of this new time coverage was that “crossing” the road was allowed.
So since the incident of the said villager happened in Muntinlupa, Alabang Bulletin reached out to the Muntinlupa Traffic and Management Bureau.
They informed us that since they do not implement Number Coding in all Muntinlupa roads (again, except for Commerce Ave. — which, again, is under the jurisdiction of Barangay Ayala Alabang), they do not apprehend violators as well — even on Alabang-Zapote Road.
So we contacted MMDA and here was how the conversation went:
So this statement by the MMDA should clarify it.
Only straight crossing (BF Resort to Casimiro in Las Pinas, for example) is allowed.
As mentioned by the MMDA, even traversing less than five meters is already a violation and not considered “crossing”.
Las Pinas City also does not have window hours, by the way.
Some groups are now seeking an audience with MMDA to see if there can be some exemptions to this “Crossing Rule”.
Let us all stay tuned.
any updated news on crossing alabang zapote rd? incidentally, i tried to ask through messenger, MMDA — if bridgeway ave. is part of the coding implementation. So far, i did not get an answer. I need to know if crossing commerce ave is allowed .
If you’re crossing Bridgeway Ave. to Northgate then that should be allowed since that is just straight crossing.
I would just like to clarify if I pass Paranaque (Cananay Ave- Tionquiao – Aguilar-Alabang Zapote) going to SM southmall..is there window hours?
No window hours on Alabang-Zapote Road but direct crossing is allowed.
