QUEZON CITY, (PIA) -- National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) director Major General Felipe Natividad over the weekend has assured that they have contingency plans in place ahead of President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. inaugural at the National Museum in Manila on June 30.

Natividad said several road closures will be implemented, including the one-kilometer radius of the National Museum will be declared a no-fly zone for drones and aircraft, while several ports and waterways near the establishment have also been inspected.

Relative to this, the airspace within a one-kilometer radius of the National Museum will be declared as ‘no-fly and no drone flying zone’ as well as all the ports and waterways will be secured to preempt entry of would-be saboteurs,” he said.

To ensure success, zero casualties, and any untoward incident in the upcoming inauguration, final security preparation has been finalized and laid down. This is to guarantee a smooth transition of political leadership in the country amid the continuing threat of the current health crisis,” he added.

The NCRPO said following roads will be closed to the public:

-Stretch of Padre Burgos Avenue from Taft Avenue to Roxas Boulevard
-Stretch of Finance Road from Padre Burgos to Taft
-Stretch of T.M. Kalaw Avenue from Taft to Roxas Boulevard
-Stretch of Maria Orosa Street from Padre Burgos to Kalaw
-Stretch of General Luna Street from Padre Burgos to Muralla Street
-Stretch of C. Victoria Street from Taft to Muralla
-Stretch of Ayala Boulevard, from General Solano Street, crossing Ayala Bridge, to Taft Avenue

Backpacks also not be allowed in all VIP areas to ensure the safety of everyone.

We have not monitored any threat ahead as of this moment but we are continuously and closely monitoring and coordinating with our counterparts,” Natividad said in a separate statement. (PIA-NCR)
