Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan has banned the closure of Lake Drive and other roads within Burnham Park.
The Baguio politiko signed a city council resolution prohibiting the road closures for more than one day.
The measure stated that road closures within Burnham Park result to traffic congestion especially in the Summer Capital’s central business district.
“It was observed that every time Burnham Lake Drive is closed, traffic jams occur within the central business district, causing inconvenience and lost opportunities to the public,” it stated.
“This usually happens during the conduct of commercial trade fairs or other activities that last for a month or more,” the measure added.
