MANILA - San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora has suspended pay parking in more streets following President Rodrigo Duterte's order for local governments to reclaim public roads to ease traffic in Metro Manila.
Zamora signed an order on Thursday formally banning pay parking in some of the city's most traffic-choked roads effective August 5.
These roads are:
- Annapolis Street
- Eisenhower Street
- Club Filipino Avenue
- Connecticut Street
- Missouri Street
- Xavier Street
- Grant Street
- Washington Street
- Madison Street
- Pinaglabanan Street (Filoil Flying V Center)
- Santolan Road (Filoil Flying V Center)
- All other Streets in the City of San Juan used as pay parking by the City Government or Barangay
Vehicles parked along these streets will be towed and their drivers issued citation tickets, Zamora said.
"Likewise, I have directed all our Barangay Chairpersons to implement this order in their respective jurisdictions," Zamora said.
The San Juan mayor said traffic along Greenhills "greatly improved" last week after the local government banned parking in streets near the commercial center.
