Mayor Joseph Estrada will launch today Manila’s “traffic super body” to solve the city’s traffic problem and help in easing the flow of traffic in Metro Manila.
Estrada will launch the body at 9:30 a.m. at the Bulwagang Villegas of the Manila City Hall. He said the traffic group will help in the “unending” effort to finally solve the city’s traffic problem.
The group is composed of Manila’s Department of Public Safety, Manila Police District-Traffic Enforcement Unit, Manila Tricycle Regulatory Office, Office of the City Engineer, Manila Barangay Bureau, City Treasurer’s Office, and the Manila City Hall Action and Support Assignment.
It also includes local transport groups, truckers associations, parent-teacher associations, city councilors, and barangay officials.
Port operators International Container Terminal Services and Asian Terminals Inc., whose trucks pass the city’s roads on the way to the Port of Manila, also joined the collective effort to address Manila’s traffic concerns.
Estrada will also discuss other local and national issues, such as his traffic alleviation programs, his continuing campaign against illegal drugs and criminality, the burial of former President Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, and the rumors about his reported hospital confinement, among others.
