The Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) will end today, January 19, its 5-day traffic dry run and the JR Borja Bridge will be closed starting tomorrow until its official inauguration on January 23,
As of today, all diverted PUJs are already back in their original routes.
Initial info gathered revealed most private vehicles use the new bridge thereby easing load and traffic at the decades old Ysalina (Carmen) Bridge. Many re-routed PUJ drivers complained because they get many of their passengers at Divisoria, City Hall and even Vamenta Boulevard. Accordingly, RTA is set to make some adjustments especially in the Carmen side to lessen the traffic at the bridge junction along Vamenta Boulevard.
