MANILA – There will be a traffic rerouting in parts of Manila due to the Shell Eco-marathon Asia this February.

Due to the marathon, motorists are advised that traffic along Roxas Boulevard, between T.M. Kalaw and P. Burgos Streets, will be diverted and re-routed.

From February 2 to 12, southbound motorists or those going to Pasay area from Bonifacio Drive should turn left to P. Burgos, right to Ma. Orosa, right to T.M. Kalaw, and left to reach Roxas Boulevard.

From February 2 to 5 and February 10 to 12 (12 a.m. to 4 a.m.), northbound motorists along Roxas Boulevard going to Intramuros or port area should turn right at T.M. Kalaw, left to Ma. Orosa, left to P. Burgos, and right to reach Bonifacio Drive.

The Shell eco-marathon, the first to be hosted by the Philippines, is "a competition where engineering students from across the region will outdo each other in developing vehicles of the future – cars that run on alternative sources of energy, and cars that excel in terms of fuel efficiency and smarter mobility."

The marathon is a joint project of the Shell companies in the Philippines, the Department of Tourism, and the City Government of Manila.
