How was Katipunan traffic today? I fortunately avoided it as I did a morning Banawe run.

This morning was horrendous. Waze had me go around to Kalayaan but the Anonas extension corner V. Luna intersection was not budging so I ended up going back to C.P. Garcia which was relatively devoid of traffic until BAM! I got to Katipunan. Stupid Katipunan has three lanes turning left to Miriam and Ateneo if you're on Katipunan southbound. WTF, right? This just means that the schools can't get the cars inside that quick enough. Once you get past gate 3 of Ateneo, it's a mad dash for me all the way to Eastwood.

And let's not even talk about the poor folks going northbound. They're backed up all the way up to the flyover from Country Style. This is at nearly 9am when there shouldn't be a queue like that!

Counterflow in effect earlier in Katipunan for those heading Northbound. Counterflow starts where the old U-turn near Mcdo is and ends at Ateneo Gate 3.

Yeah I took that today. Was about to take the U-turn from Commonwealth at Tandang Sora into Katipunan-NLEX but the tail-end was already on Commonwealth, went via CP Garcia (6AM). Passed by  Ateneo around 6:30, dropped the missus at Bagong Ilog around 7. Reached Katipunan flyover 7:15, Passed Ateneo-Miriam 7:45.

Yeah, I noticed that this time the cars didn't get stacked up until the top of the flyover for the Northbound people. Since Soutbound after Ateneo Gate 3 is fast moving that lane they're eating up doesn't mess your flow southbound much. Slowdowns there used to be from the U-turn anyway.

When I passed by both times (6:30 and 7:15), tail-end of the northbound traffic was just after the hospital.

Passed by the area around 8:30AM so rush hour is subsiding already.

lucky for us, we no longer use the cassette player otherwise you already auto-reversed.

^ Much as I'd like to put a damp rag on new traffic flow experiments, Ateneo has been causing traffic mayhem in Katipunan even before BF implemented U-turns.
