Since Filipinos start celebrating Christmas in September, Taal Mayor Pong Mercado saw it fit to begin preparing for the holiday traffic rush as well.
Mercado, in a Facebook post, said he and Lemery Mayor Larry Alilio to discuss holiday traffic in their areas.
While traffic has not reached Metro Manila levels, they won’t wait for this to worsen before doing something, Mercado said.
Now the two mayors are laying down plans to prepare for the influx of vehicles and shoppers, so that their holiday would be a little merrier!
“Ber Months na! Mayor Pong and Mayor Larry Discuss Oplan Agap-Trapik to Avert Holiday Traffic in Taal-Lemery
Hindi kasing-lala sa Maynila pero hindi na po iintayin pa ni Mayor Pong na umabot sa ganoon ang traffic sa Taal. Kaya sa isinagawang inter-LGU meeting ng Taal at Lemery, inilatag ang mga plano para sa mas maayos na daloy ng trapiko bilang paghahanda na rin sa Christmas Season.
Para ang inyong Pasko, Patuloy PONG Hassle- and Traffic-Free!,” Mercado posted.
