One way lane in Boracay, included in Malay Transportation Office’s plan

A possible one way lane in Boracay is now included in Malay Transportation Office (MTO)’s plan.

This is to lessen the difficulty brought about by the heavy traffic in the island particularly on weekends.

According to Malay Transportation Officer Cezar Oczon, they already have their initial plan, but its finalization has to wait because of the on-going formulation of the traffic code.

Meanwhile, Oczon calls upon all delivery vehicles and mini dump truck operators to use the circumferential road in order to minimize the buildup of traffic at the main road.

However, the circumferential road is not 100 % finished as of the moment as parts of the road still needs to be completed.

Heavy traffic caused some dilemmas in Boracay this past weekend when tricycle color coding was temporarily canceled after shortages of units, which in turn resulted from the influx of thousands of tourists.
