Bonifacio Global City's new traffic rerouting scheme to take effect on March 1

 
bgc main
Bonifacio Global City (BGC), also known as 'The Fort' to others, is rapidly growing into a major business and lifestyle hotspot in the metro. And with the growth comes extra vehicular traffic, that if left unmanaged, can quickly turn any city into a parking lot. So starting today, March 1, 2013, BGC is implementing a new traffic rerouting scheme that will hopefully ease the traffic flow along McKinley Parkway which leads to and from Forbes Park. (See map)
 
Vehicles coming from Forbes Park through McKinley Road can no longer drive straight to McKinley Parkway. Instead, they'll have to either turn left or right to 5th Avenue and onto their destination.
 
Meanwhile, vehicles from McKinley Park going to EDSA can no longer drive straight to McKinley Drive. They'll have to turn right to 5th Avenue and find their own way from there. One option is turn left at 32nd St. and take Kalayaan Avenue to either northbound (take Kalayaan flyover) or southbound lanes of EDSA. But those who insists on taking McKinley Drive can turn right to 24th St. (now one-way) and make a left onto 5th Avenue before making making a right to McKinley Drive.
 
On top of these changes, BGC has also turned Rizal Drive and 24th St. into one-way traffic. Rizal Drive will now be one-way going towards the Manila American Cemetery, while 24th St. will be one-way from McKinley Parkway going towards 5th Avenue.
 
BGC did not announce until when this new traffic rerouting scheme will end. But if it proves successful, they could probably make it permanent.
