“Dagdag na imprestraktura.”
This is Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Danny Lim’s permanent solution for the traffic problems of the Philippines which has lasted for many years.
Lim admits that the MMDA can only implement band-aid solutions for the persistent congestion problems of Metro Manila.
Lim blames the continuous increase of vehicles, which the creation of infrastructure projects, including skyways and subways, cannot follow.
The MMDA official also insists that the local government units and the Department of Interior and Local Government must assist the government in answering the said problems.
“Ginawa naman natin iyan at supportado naman tayo ng mga mayor ay nakipag-ugnayan tayo sa DILG. Magkakaroon tayo ng MOA with DILG ng sa ganun mabigyan ng ngipin yung kampanya namin. Kung baga yung isang lugar ay klaro na or clear na, kukunan natin ng picture, ituturn over natin sa barangay captain at kung bumalik ang problema doon siya ang responsable doon.” Lim said.
