To streamline the flow of traffic in Baclaran, the Parañaque City Government, through its Traffic Management Office, by virtue of the powers and prerogatives provided by City Ordinance No. 05-04 (56), Series of 2004, also known as the “Parañaque City Traffic Management Code”, will implement a rerouting scheme in the area effective Monday, August 30, 2010.
Known as one of the best centers for dry goods, droves of shoppers, traders, bargain hunters troop to Baclaran daily for best buys.
Added to this throng are hundreds of Catholics who visit the National Shrine of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help for their petitions.
The number is doubled and tripled on Wednesdays when novenas are scheduled at the Redemptorist Church.
Following Traffic Circular No. 01, Series of 2010, all Public Utility Jeepneys (PUJ) emanating from the south and whose endpoint, turnaround point or junction as indicated in their franchise issued by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board is at Baclaran, shall take the following route: Northbound from Quirino Avenue, turn left at Redemptorist Road and take another left at Roxas Blvd. Service Road.
Turn left at Airport Road then make a right turn at the southbound lane of Quirino Avenue towards Tambo.
Private vehicles and taxis coming from the north headed towards the Redemptorist Church may make a U-turn at the intersection of Roxas Blvd. and Airport Road.
They can then make a right turn at Redemptorist Road and from that junction also at their option, make a left or right turn at the Roxas Blvd. Service Road.
This rerouting scheme will be on an experimental basis, subject to further review, modification and/or ratification by the Parañaque City Council.
Please feel free to communicate with the Parañaque Traffic Management Office through telephone 829-1458 for more information or any question on the rerouting scheme.
