After much hubbub over the widening of Friendship Highway to meet the demand of the housing developments being built in the area, something had to be done about long waits. Some days, residents in the area were boxed in with traffic around Korea Town for 30-minutes or more.
Surely the time could be better spent than traveling a single kilometer in a car when walking would be faster.
One of the biggest bottlenecks in town appears each evening along Friendship Highway and is finally being fixed up. From 4 to 9 PM Monday through Friday, Friendship Highway is now a one-way road heading southbound towards the Friendship Bridge coming from Perimeter Road. Northbound traffic uses Mekong Street to reach Clark or Balibago.
