Parking of all kinds of vehicles, food, taking pictures, hanging out, and honking in Kaybiang Tunnel will be banned
Kaybiang Tunnel, the longest subterranean road tunnel in the Philippines, has been declared as a “no tourism zone” by the local government of Cavite.
Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla announced via a Facebook post that starting Friday, March 19, tourists will be banned from the tunnel.
According to him, he received reports that local tourists flock at the tunnel causing heavy traffic.
He said that because thousands of bicycles, motorcycles, and vehicles stop in the tunnel to take selfies or picture-taking, it resulted to “nonstop traffic at bottleneck mula entrance at exit ng tunnel.”
Therefore, starting Friday, parking of all kinds of vehicles, food, taking pictures, hanging out, and honking in Kaybiang Tunnel will be banned.
He added that police will also have checkpoint in Tanza, Naic, Maragondon and Ternate.
“Hindi ko naman kagustuhan ang basagan ng trip. Ngunit responsibilidad ko din na siguraduhin na maayos ang counterflow ng traffic at maintenance ng law and order sa ating mga lansangan,” the governor said.
“In the meantime: STAYING IN IS THE NEW GOING OUT,” he added.
