Heads Up on BGC's New One-Way Traffic Scheme Starting on September 17
Motorists passing through the Bonifacio Global City (BGC) is reminded of the new one-way scheme starting on Monday, September 17, 2018. The scheme is shown in the map below:
In order to guide motorists, additional marshals and on ground signage have been deployed to help motorists of this change in traffic flow. BGC also teamed up with navigation app, Waze for traffic re-routing.
Part of the BGC Masterplan, the one-way scheme is intended to address the large volume of vehicles that go to and pass through BGC. It is seen as the most efficient traffic circulation scheme for the city’s street grid network because apart from maximizing the width of the street, it reduces the conflicts between vehicles and pedestrians at intersections and minimizes the time that they are stopped at intersections.
BGC will also continue its existing wheel clamping and towing operations to keep major streets free of obstructions. Motorists may easily find parking spots through the BGC app downloadable on Android or iOS devices.
“We are hoping to make the transition to the new one-way scheme as smooth as possible. In the past few weeks, BGC has really stepped up its information drive to let motorists know of the changes being implemented,” said Bonifacio Estate Services Corporation General Manager, Jun Galvez.
