MANILA - The number coding scheme will be suspended starting 12 noon Thursday, ahead of the long weekend as Filipinos commemorate the Day of the Dead, the Metro Manila Development Authority said.
Malacanang earlier called off work in government offices starting 12 noon Thursday. Friday and Saturday are public holidays for All Saint's Day and All Souls' Day.
"Suspended na po ang number coding scheme simula alas dose ng tanghali (12 noon) para sa lahat ng uri ng sasakyan," MMDA spokesperson Celine Pialago said in a message to reporters.
