Tagaytay has been rather congested lately, more so when it's a long weekend. To manage the problem, city officials reckon a one-way scheme will help ease traffic, and they will be implementing it by tomorrow, April 13, Saturday. Given that Holy Week is just around the corner, the new scheme will be put to the test.
So where will the one-way scheme be imposed? Local officials have put out maps as a guide for those who will go there during Holy Week. Mahogany Road (J.P. Rizal Street), starting from the Petron at Maharlika East Intersection, will now be one-way for vehicles coming from Metro Manila, Bacoor, Dasma, Silang, and Sta. Rosa going to Nasugbu and other Batangas cities.
Meanwhile, the Tagaytay-Nasugbu Road will be a one-way, starting at the Hagdang Bato Intersection for vehicles coming from Nasugbu, Indang, and Alfonso heading to Tagaytay-Sta. Rosa Road and Metro Manila.
The new one-way traffic scheme is similar to the one recently implemented by the administration of Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Taguig. From what we’ve observed in BGC, the flow of traffic has improved over the previous months. Given the number of tourists who will be visiting Tagaytay during the Holy Week vacation, the one-way scheme could help ease the ever-worsening traffic in the area.
It was not mentioned whether the one-way scheme will be made permanent or simply for the duration of Holy Week.
