MMDA Considering Broader Number Coding to Further Ease Traffic in Manila

By FFE PH News staff  

MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino mentioned  last Wednesday that he acknowledged the importance of coming up with a new scheme to resolve the traffic problems in Metro Manila, specifically at the Epifanio de los Santos (Edsa).

He further said “When we came here [as MMDA chairman], there are 1.9 million registered vehicles in Metro Manila but as of now it reached 2.3 million so we might duplicate the four digit number coding in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

Under this proposed coding scheme,vehicles are banned from EDSA  with licence plates ending in 1,2,3 and 4 and not be allowed from plying roadways during Mondays;5,6,7 and 8 and on Tuesdays;9,0,1 and 2 and on Wednesdays,3,4,5 and 6 on Thurdays, and 7,8,9 and 0 Fridays.

Nevertheless,Tolentino said that there will be consultations with all the stakeholder  and the 14- member of Metro Manila Council  and the policy may only be implemented in Metro Manila and Edsa only.
