Mayor okays carless Session Road on Jan. 27

by Juliet D. Pilotin

BAGUIO CITY, Jan. 23 (PIA) -- Mayor Mauricio Domogan last week approved the temporary closure of Session Road to vehicular traffic on Friday, January 27.

The mayor said this is in line with a forum entitled, ‘Recreating People Friendly Session Road’ which will be participated in by residents, students and visitors from Manila.

Domogan said, ‘the temporary closure of Session Road during the conduct of the activity will popularize the concept of public space and road sharing.’

‘This will also entail people to have a feel of the city’s landmark structures so they can appreciate Baguio City as it is,’ he said.

The organizers of the activity has lined up an array of events which would spice up the forum at the University of the Cordilleras theater.

The main concept would focus on the dream of some stakeholders for a carless Session Road which would in turn be replicated in major cities around the country.

The temporary closure will affect the whole stretch of Session Road from its junction with Magsaysay Avenue up to its junction with Fr. Carlo Loop from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The junction of Session Road with Upper Lower Mabini street will be kept open as alternate route for private and public vehicles.

Meantime, Domogan also ordered the temporary closure of major roads in and around the Central Business District (CBD) come February for the 17th Panabenga Festival.

The South Drive Teachers Camp Gate to Military Cut-off rotunda to Lower Session Road and Harrison Road will be closed on February 1, 25, and 26 from 4:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for the Flower Festival Opening parade, Grand Street parade, and Grand Float Parade.

Upper Session Road (SM rotunda to Mercury Drug of Malcolm Square) to include roads and backstreets intersecting Session Road and Gov. Pack Road will also be closed on February 28 to March 6 midnight for the Session Road in Bloom. (PIA CAR/PR-Baguio City PIO)
