Were you one of those who had to endure today’s monstrous traffic in Cagayan de Oro City’s eastern area? Motorists coming from the eastern part bound for city had to spend more than 2 hours of bumper-to-bumper traffic along the National Highway after security procedures at the Tablon checkpoint became very tight with several activities related to the city fiesta celebration now starting.
The long line started as early before 7:00AM and continued toward the night. A traffic advisory from the city’s Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) stated traffic resumed to normalcy at 8:40PM.
At some point, the line reached as far as Tagoloan town which is 7 kilometers away.
Fortunately, RTA deployed several personnel to the area to prevent counter flowing of vehicles. More photos below.
