Alabang-Zapote Road, since it’s construction in 1982, became the commercial avenue in the City. With the sidewalks diminished adversely, such had become a part of informal vending activities. The firms which had registered in the City, however, had been located in other barangays, thus do not contribute to the congestion of the road.
