San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora said he expects to finish the clearing of obstructions on the city’s streets before the two-month deadline set by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

Yun ang target natin na bago pa umabot ‘yung deadline ay nasaayos natin ang Lungsod ng San Juan (That is our target that the City of San Juan is already in order before the deadline),” Zamora said.

The mayor said that he met with the barangay captains to find ways on how to address the demand of motorists for parking space as the local government banned pay parking on all of the city’s streets on Monday.

“Sabi ko [sa mga barangay captains], lahat ng mga lupa dito sa San Juan na kasalukuyang hindi nagagamit, na nakatiwangwang lang, pwede nating kausapin ‘yung mga may-ari para gawin muna ‘tong parking facilities,” Zamora said.

“Pwede tayong magbigay ng incentives sa mga may-ari nito upang buksan nila at gawing mga parking facilities ito (We could give land owners incentives in exchange for them to open their areas and make them into parking facilities),” he added.

DILG Sec. Eduardo Año earlier gave Metro Manila mayors 60 days to clear their respective cities of obstructions.

The two-month deadline was set after President Duterte ordered during his Fourth State of the Nation Address the reclamation of roads and the clearing of its obstruction to ease the traffic congestion in the metropolis.
