about edsa. 


edsa is not growing. its still the same old 4 lane per way highway of old. it also has no more room to grow. but the population of cars on edsa did multiply. the only realistic solution to edsa is to decongest. 


some people should not use edsa. eto na, hehehe the government asked provincial buses, had a lot of opposition, the government asked jeepneys, had opposition, the government asked motorcycles, had opposition. now nobody wants to withdraw from using edsa. my view is simple, let those who can pay use edsa. put rfid's every 3 km in edsa and see who can pay the toll fees. so the most affected will be those who use edsa daily. not other people who are not involved. tax as per use. I'm sure, there will be opposition, but if no one wants to give space in edsa, its just a big parking lot that everyone complains and rants. 


say 50 pesos every 3 km. 


maybe end to end ng edsa 30 km? 1500 pesos. ganun lang. kahit sino ka pa, basta bayaran u lang ang pag gamit sa edsa. others can take an alternate route of course.


next, the revenue earned from the toll taken in edsa should be used to create a skyway highway parallel to edsa for the private vehicles. to segregate the public and private vehicles. of course put tolls as well. 


para shared na ang payments from private and public. revenues earned should be used to maintain and save more money for the subway system in manila. para kumonti ang mga buses. let subway trains be the norm in the metro. 


as a volume of cars are pushed to other routes, now other routes are also congested, I do think its time to control the volume of cars being sold in the metro and the volume of cars that needs to be discarded, maybe more than 10 years should be phased out and sell to other countries or recycled. or discarded. higher taxes should control it. 


its not a one week solution it would take years and administrations to fulfill. but that's a concrete way of doing it. 


my 3 cent opinion only.

Bakit hindi ka na lang mangbang bansa, baka magkasakit ka pa sa stress na nakukuha mo dito sa Pinas.  Pwede ka pa rin na,man mag post dito kahit nasa abroad ka na.


Also can you quote/post any of the present admin officials saying that they can solve the traffic instantly.

Hindi naman ma-aayos ang traffic kung pag-uusapan lang sa forum.


Solving the traffic problem is a combination of a lot of solutions.

  1. Phase-out of inefficient jeepneys and tricycles.
  2. Upgrade public utility system - more buses and trains
  3. Increase/upgrade roadways.
  4. Reduce private vehicle use / increase ride sharing by making cars and fuel more expensive 
  5. Strict implementation of traffic rules and regulations by traffic management agencies.
  6. Strict training, education and qualification of drivers

there are a lot of root causes, but thr biggest factor is congestion. the only real solution is better urban planning. effective mass transport system is a close second.

it's been decades and several administrations passed by, but none of them had the political will to decongest metro manila. they all keep resorting to bandaid solutions without even trying to decongest metro manila first. plug the holes on the boat first instead of just throwing buckets of water back into the sea.
