Metro Manila Traffic: MMDA Guide to Roadway Construction & Traffic

Metro Manila Traffic

What rush hour? Every hour has become rush hour in Metro Manila. Be it 5 in the morning, 3 in the afternoon, or even 11 at night, commuters face blinking red lights going to work or on their way home. Kind of like a daily Christmas decoration, except it’s cars not mini pretty bulbs and it’s the highways and major roads not our houses.

While we’ve been told that the horrific traffic situation will persist for at least 15 years, various construction projects are underway to help lighten the commuter’s woes. But before these road constructions help us, they’re going to make us want to lose our minds first – with the whole building process causing even added heavy traffic. So MMDA came up with an “an online guide to inform the public about the status of these projects as well as alternate routes motorists may take in the meantime.”

Enter the The Metro Manila Roadway Tablet provides the latest information on Metro Manila roadway construction. The site has useful features such as (1) the overall status of the project, (2) project updates, (3) project description, (4) construction period, (5) project location, (6) implementing agency/ies, (7) project owner, and (8) contractor. Some projects also offer alternate routes for motorists. (Please see Figure 1)
