If you work, live, or pass through Makati City, then you should take note that they're holding their traditional New Year's Eve Countdown Party on the corner of Ayala Avenue and Makati Avenue once again. This means that as early as 12:01AM of December 29, 2012 (Saturday), both directions of Ayala Avenue (from Paseo de Roxas to Parkway Drive) and Makati Avenue (from Dela Rosa Street to Paseo de Roxas) will be closed to vehicular traffic until January 1, 2013 to make way for stage construction, equipment placement, and fireworks display preparation.
So to avoid the hassle, here's the traffic rerouting scheme that will be implemented (see map for reference):
