For southbound vehicles, they should turn left at P. Burgos, Kalaw or U.N. Avenue then right at Taft Avenue, traverse right at Buendia or EDSA then Roxas Boulevard to their destination.
The following streets in Pasay and Makati will also be locked down because of the said summit:

The public should also note that as the Palace declared Friday (April 28) as a non-working holiday, the number-coding scheme is consequentially suspended.
