The dry run for the re-routing of traffic in Boracay will be held Friday, October 26.
This is in preparation for the arrival of the Carribbean Cruise "Legend of the Seas," Saturday, October 27.
The re-routing, according to P/S Insp. Joeffer Cabural, the Chief of Boracay Tourist Assistance Center (BTAC), is to avoid heavy traffic on Saturday when the more than 2 thousand tourists from the cruise ship will go to Boracay Island.
Related to the preparations will be the posting of Personnel from the Police, Army, Municipal Auxiliary Police (MAP), village watchmen, and other Non-Government Organizations in Boracay for the security of the visiting tourists.
Cabura also requested for cooperation and understanding from motorists, especially tricycle drivers. He included in his request the compliance to the re-routing which will be implemented starting Friday for a smooth flow of traffic.
Meanwhile, since Cabural was newly instated as the Chief of BTAC and this will the first major event in which he will be taking care of security as BTAC’s Chief, he considers it as a challenge and believes that everything will be orderly.
He added nevertheless that things were all set for the deployment of friendly forces of the government for Saturday.
