The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority on Monday said there will be no road closures or special lanes allotted for convoys when leaders of the Asian Development Bank meet in Manila next month. 

The Department of Finance sought the MMDA's help to dry run a traffic scheme that would least affect motorists around the ADB area in Mandaluyong. 

MMDA Spokesperson Celine Pialago said the early morning dry run did not cause a major traffic disruption as alternate routes were laid out.

Motorists have been given a heads-up to stay away from the ADB area on May 3-6.

Pialago said the "stop and go scheme" shall be utilized and convoys will be escorted to and from the ADB headquarters.
