It’s no secret that the Kaybiang Tunnel along Nasugbu-Ternate Highway is a popular go-to destination for motorists and cyclists –  most especially during weekends.

However, the famed local tourist spot in Maragondon, Cavite has become so crowded with visitors who wanted to have their photos taken in front of the tunnel’s entrance, which usually cause traffic build-ups in the area.

That’s why Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla announced on Wednesday that the Kaybiang Tunnel will no longer be open to tourists after receiving several complaints about the traffic situation along the highway.

“Marami ang nag-report sa aking tanggapan na ang Kaybiang Tunnel sa Mt. Pico de Loro ay nagiging sanhi ng traffic, basura, at umabot pa sa mga lokal na turista ang sila silang nagba-bardagulan doon,” he said.

“Buong magdamag ay libo-libong bisikleta, motorsiklo, at sasakyan ang nakaparada, kumakain, nagliliwaliw at lahat ay tumitigil para mag-selfie o mag-picture-taking doon,” Remulla added.

He said that beginning March 19, parking of vehicles within the vicinity of the tunnel will be prohibited as well as eating, taking selfies, loitering, and blowing of horns. Cyclist will also not be allowed to use the tunnel for leisure purposes.

“Hindi ko naman kagustuhan ang basagan ng trip. Ngunit responsibilidad ko din na siguraduhin na maayos ang counterflow ng traffic at maintenance ng law and order sa ating mga lansangan,” he said.

Police will also setup checkpoints in Tanza, Naic, Maragondon, and Ternate to enforce the new policy, according to Remulla.

Remulla’s announcement came on the heels of a riot that occurred near the Kaybiang Tunnel over the weekend. In the video, a couple of motorcycle riders can be seen engaging in a fist-fight following an argument.
