Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — In a bid to ease traffic congestion in Quezon City this holiday season, the Inter-Agency Council on Traffic (i-ACT) will be opening the gates of the Veterans' Memorial Medical Center (VMMC) to paying motorists.

Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) General Manager Timor Orbos confirmed Thursday that VMMC leadership has approved the plan.

Orbos said vehicles will be allowed to enter the VMMC main gate along North Ave. and exit through the Mindanao Ave. gate from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Motorists will need vehicle stickers to enter the VMMC premises. According to the MMDA, motorists must fill out an application form at the VMMC Security Office, provide their photos and photocopies of their vehicles' official receipt and certificate of registration, and pay ₱500 to secure the stickers.

The process is similar for vehicles who wish to pass through Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City and Bonifacio Naval Station in Taguig City, which are both military installations.
