Some roads in Makati City will be closed to traffic for the homecoming parade on Friday for Miss World Megan Young.
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said Ayala Avenue will be closed from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for the parade after Young’s courtesy call on President Benigno Aquino 3rd in the morning.
The parade will start at 2 p.m. from the Petron station at Buendia Avenue (Gil Puyat Avenue) corner Makati Avenue and pass through Ayala towards EDSA, culminating at the Mall of Asia in Pasay City.
The MMDA advised motorists to take alternate routes:
All vehicles along EDSA, must right to Buendia Avenue, Right at Paseo de Roxas, left at Jupiter Street, Metropolitan Avenue, left Don Chino Roces Avenue, right at Buendia Avenue to destination.
For those going to the Makati City Central Business District, all vehicles along South Super Highway must take Buendia Avenue then right to Makati Avenue to Makati CBD.
Traffic enforcers from the Makati Department of Public Safety will be deployed ahead of the parade to guide motorists.
Young, the first Filipina to be crowned Miss World crown, returned home to celebrate her historic triumph with fans and supporters.
Winning what pageant experts call the “coveted blue crown” of Miss World has always been considered more than a dream because it bordered on near-obsession for pageant aficionados.
As Miss World, Young vowed to bring hope and cheer to the less fortunate through the various “Beauty with a Purpose” projects of Miss World.
