There is still hope for the traffic in Metro Manila!
On Tuesday, DPWH Secretary Mark Villar stated during the Financial Times – First Metro Philippines Investment Summit that traffic is a problem we can solve in two to three years.
Villar believes that the political will of President Rodrigo Duterte will be the key to resolve and ease the traffic as he stated, “Rest assured that the biggest hurdle, political will, is something that the President has a lot of. The President is dedicated, the President is firm.”
DPWH look forward that the completion of NLEX-SLEX connector road, the 8-kilometer 4-lane elevated expressway, which will be associated to Philippine National Railway (PNR) right of way will help ease the problem same with the Manila Harbor Link Project that is 8.07-km extension of NLEX from Mindanao Avenue, Quezon City to C-3 in Caloocan City.
During the campaign, the President has promised that he will resolve criminality and corruption in 3-6 months and he will also work on the traffic in the country.
Now, this is something we should positively look forward to!
