MMDA renews exemption for fuel tankers

Manila (10 November) -- In line with the ongoing excavation along the busted pipeline of the First Philippine Industrial Corporation (FPIC), the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) renewed the truck ban exemptions of the fuel tankers of Pilipinas Shell and Chevron Philippines, Inc. for another week.

MMDA Officer-in-Charge Emerson Carlos signed the Special Permit for the two major oil firms allowing its tankers to travel on major thoroughfares of Metro Manila from 10 am to 6 am, with the exemption to cover until November 18.

The MMDA agreed to issue special exemptions to the fuel-carrying trucks of Shell and Chevron after the Lopez-owned FPIC shut down its 117-kilometer Batangas-Pandacan pipeline following a gas leak in Bangkal, Makati City.

MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino said these fuel trucks should be allowed to travel freely so as not to disrupt Metro Manila's fuel supply.

The truck ban exemption shall cover only those tankers and lorries carrying petroleum products previously transported via the FPIC Batangas-Pandacan pipeline, Carlos reiterated.

This special permit is renewable for an additional seven-day period or until the busted FPIC pipeline is repaired, whichever comes sooner. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
