Mas maganda gastusin na lang sa pagbuyout ng private bus lines ang pera na yan at i-kontrol na ng government. Then mag-set ng service levels ang govt then i-bidout ang O&M.

O kaya i-order na agad ng additional trains sa MRT-3 at hindi puro aral sa offer ng MVP group or SanMig group.

O kaya budget para sa isang napakakinis na EDSA, Taft, R10, SLEX Makati-Manila section atbp at isemento na ang C6 (at di puro tapal ng lupa) within the year.

O kaya i-extend na agad ang Lrt 2 to Divisoria. Tama na aral. May sasakay at sasakay diyan. Just do it.

O kaya budget para idemanda/iblacklist ang mga subcontractor ng Manila Water / Maynilad sa super super substandard ng pagtakip sa mga hinuhukay nila. Para matuto na itong mga ito.

Hay. 'Sensiya na mga bro, di ko napigil

I watched Cheche Lazaro Presents last Sunday and it featured EDSA; it's history including it's original purpose and how it got it's name; development; problems and future plans. It was interesting to know that it was originally planned by the Americans for avoiding the traffic in Manila and to be a major artery to the proposed then Quezon City to be the country's capital. The plan was to make Manila to be the financial district and the surroundings of then Highway 54 (now EDSA) to be zone for subdivisions like by day workers would go to Manila and by night they'd be travelling outwards the city on their way home. Bacause of World War II and lack of funds after the war, the original plan and zoning was not followed enabling us to see what now EDSA is.

With Skyway, Quezon City just 6 minutes from Makati

By Daxim L. Lucas
Philippine Daily Inquirer
2:18 am | Monday, February 27th, 2012



Imagine driving home at the end of a long working day during rush hour and traveling from Makati to certain parts of Quezon City in only six minutes. From Buendia to Balintawak, it will just be 10 minutes.
Motorists may soon be able to enjoy these drastically shortened travel times if the Aquino administration gives the go-ahead for the building of a six-lane elevated highway from Buendia (now called Gil Puyat Avenue) in Makati to Balintawak in Quezon City through the heart of the metropolis.
Documents obtained by the Philippine Daily Inquirer show that a Skyway-style project is being proposed by Citra-PNCC (Philippine National Construction Corp.) as part of the concession awarded to it when it built the overhead Skyway system along South Superhighway from Buendia to Bicutan in Parañaque City. The group finished the second leg from Bicutan to Alabang, Muntinlupa, early last year.
P99 toll
Dubbed the Citra-PNCC Alignment, or “CPA,” the elevated highway from Buendia to Balintawak will be built at no cost to the government, while the toll to be charged motorists will be capped at P99 for the entire 14-kilometer stretch.
The project is expected to cost P24 billion, which is significantly lower than the P35-billion price tag, including government subsidies, of a rival proposal named the connector road project.
The CPA’s proponents have promised to complete the entire project in 30 months from groundbreaking, well within the administration of President Benigno Aquino III.
The company said the project was designed primarily as a means of decongesting Edsa, where motorists usually would take an average of one-and-a-half hours to traverse in morning and evening rush-hour traffic.
The CPA project was confirmed by Citra-PNCC president and CEO Shadik Wahono, who said that his firm had conveyed the proposal to the government and was awaiting its response.
“Given the traffic situation around Metro Manila, we believe that everyone, not just motorists and commuters, will benefit from this project,” he said, when contacted by the Inquirer.
Wahono explained that the elevated highway was part of the original concession award by the government to Citra in the 1990s which resulted in the building of stages one and two of the Skyway system.
8 entrances, exits
Wahono pointed out that the CPA was superior to the rival 22-kilometer connector-road proposal which also sought to connect South Luzon Expressway to North Luzon Expressway, only at a higher cost to government and motorists.
The CPA will have eight entrances and exits that motorists can use: Buendia, Quirino Avenue, Plaza Dilao, Aurora Boulevard, E. Rodriguez Sr. Avenue, Quezon Avenue, Sgt. Rivera Street and Balintawak.
“The connector-road proposal, meanwhile, only has three—in Quirino, España and 5th Avenue,” Wahono said.
Third level
The CPA has provisions for eventual expansion from the initial six lanes to a full-fledged 10 lanes with the addition of a third-level, four-lane roadway, said the
Citra-PNCC chief.
The infrastructure proposal also veers away from the connector road’s design which calls for the building of a four-lane elevated highway on the Philippine National Railways (PNR) line snaking through Metro Manila.
Wahono said that because of the 30-meter clearance requirement on either side of the PNR tracks, the connector road was limited to a width of four lanes, increasing the risk of traffic congestion in case of vehicular accidents.
Minimal disruption
“With the CPA, we will build the support columns in the median of existing wide avenues, resulting in minimal disruption,” he said.
In addition to potentially becoming one of the flagship infrastructure projects of the Aquino administration, the construction of the CPA will have a strong multiplier effect on the economy, given the workers it will employ, the raw materials that will be used, and the eventual increase in land values that the completed highway will indirectly cause, Wahono said.

Does anyone here know the fines or penalties for the violations?

Single ticketing in Metro Manila starts March 1

Starting tomorrow (March 1), the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and the 17 local government units of Metro Manila will issue a common traffic ticket known as the Uniform Ordinance Violation Receipt (UOVR) in their respective jurisdictions, the first step toward imposing common fines and penalties within the metropolitan area.

MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino said this measure implements the Agency's mandate under its charter to institute a single ticketing system in Metro Manila.

"Transport groups have been asking for single ticketing since 1995. We are grateful for the support and cooperation of DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo and the Metro Manila mayors in finally resolving this matter," Tolentino said.

The UOVR will be launched tomorrow (March 1) at 11 am at the MMDA office in Makati City. Mayors, local traffic bureau chiefs, Land Transportation Office (LTO) officials and leaders of public transport organizations are expected to attend the launch.

Long Overdue. It was conceptualized during GMA administration.

New terminals for buses to be built in Metro Manila

by Zen Hernandez, ABS-CBN News
Posted at 03/05/2012 3:26 PM | Updated as of 03/05/2012 3:26 PM

MANILA, Philippines - Transportation Secretary Mar Roxas said new bus terminals will have to be constructed at the North, South and Eastern parts of Metro Manila, in order to de-congest traffic in the metropolis.

This is in line with Executive Order 67 issued by Malacañang directing the establishment of an Integrated Transportation System.

At present, there are 28,426 public utility buses nationwide. Around 7,736 buses traverse Metro Manila (provincial), on top of the 5,331 city buses that go around NCR.

There are also 85 provincial bus terminals in NCR and 46 in EDSA alone, which explains the daily traffic.

But never constructed and implemented. So still a big thumbs up to this present administration if done.

About time they do some urban planning. They should also assign danger zones for various natural disasters such as areas vulnerable to earthquakes, flooding etc,
