We’ve been seeing a lot of efforts to clear up Metro Manila’s roads lately. LGUs along with the powers that be (AKA the MMDA) have ramped up towing and apprehensions for those who are illegally parked and in Manila City’s case, those who sell wares on sidewalks as well. Here’s a list of stretches to avoid parking along, and those that strictly prohibit sidewalk vending.
16 stretches of No Parking roads in Manila, 2 stretches of No Vendor zones
The City of Manila, per Executive Order No. 07-A Series of 2022 created the Task Force Against Road Obstructions (TFARO). The Task Force has identified roadways including alleys where they will strictly enforce the No Parking-No Vending policy.
The following roads are designated as No Parking-No Vendor Zones:
|Juan Luna||Recto||Plaza San Lorenzo Ruiz|
|Blumentritt||Rizal Avenue||A. Bonifacio|
|Plaza Miranda Vicinity|
|Raon||Quezon Blvd.||Rizal Avenue|
|C. Palanca||Ayala||Plaza Lacson|
|Carriedo||Rizal Avenue||Quiapo Church|
|U.N. Avenue||Roxas Blvd.||Taft Avenue|
|Padre Faura||Roxas Blvd.||Taft Avenue|
|Pedro Gil||Roxas Blvd.||Quirino Avenue|
|Taft Avenue||Vito Cruz||Lawton|
|Zobel Roxas||Osmena Highway||Pasig Line|
This list, on the other hand, shows No-Vendor Zones with allowed one-lane parking:
|Kalaw||Roxas Blvd.||Taft Avenue|
In addition to the lists above, all Mabuhay Lanes that have been designated by the MMDA will also be subject to clearing per existing regulations. This new ruling follows Executive Order No. 15 Series of 2022 which identified the aforementioned streets and zones as those that disallow parking and/or vendors.
