Binay wants separate transpo dep’t to handle traffic woes

/ 07:22 PM April 24, 2016

DAGUPAN CITY – Vice President Jejomar Binay promised to improve the traffic situation in the country by creating a separate department on transportation and ensuring a speedy implementation of the government’s programs.

During the presidential debate at the University of Pangasinan on Sunday, Binay was asked by a commuter Aling Perla what would be his immediate solution to the worst traffic situation in Manila.


Going near Aling Perla from his podium, Binay said he plan to divide the Department of Transportation and Communications into two separate departments.


He also vowed to put competent people to handle the problem of traffic.

“Gabundok ang plano at programa sa pagharap ng problema ng traffic. Bakit po eh kasi ung pagpapatupad, hindi nangyayari. Kaya yung plano, sayang lang yan kung walang karanasan magpatupad at walang kakayahan magpatupad. Ibig sabihin, Aling Perla, ilalagay ko po dyan ay competent, may kakayahan mamuno sa problema ng trapiko. Katunayan, paghahatiin ang DOTC, Department of Transportation, at mayroon din naman pong Department of Communication,” Binay said.

Binay also vowed to end inefficient handling of the traffic situation in the country, citing his experience as former governor of the Metro Manila Commission.

“Alam po ninyo, naging gobernador po ako ng Metro Manila, namuno ako sa Metro Manila Development Authority. Sa pagharap ng problema ng traffic, education, enforcement, engineering, yun pong engineering ang dami pong plano diyan, magagandang plano, hindi nangyayari yung mga dapat mapatupad, mali mali naman, at palpak ang pagkakagawa,” Binay said.
