0 739

A team from the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority is heading to Bacolod City this December to study the traffic situation there.

The 15-member team’s visit stemmed from a meeting between Bacolod City mayor Evelio Leonardia and MMDA officials headed by chairman Danilo Lim.

Leonardia said the MMDA team is expected to arrive in Bacolod on Dec. 2 and will stay until Dec. 15 to study the traffic situation there.

Others who attended the meeting at the MMDA office last Oct. 30 included MMDA General Manager Jose Arturo Garcia, and Traffic and Engineering Center Director Neomie Recio.

With Leonardia were Bacolod Traffic Authority Office Head Supt. Luisito Acebuche, City Development Council Vice Chairman George Zulueta, and Executive Assistant Rodel Parcon.

Earlier, the Bacolod City government asked the MMDA to look into its traffic situation and recommend measures to improve it.

It sought the MMDA’s assistance as it is free, compared to tapping private groups that could charge millions of pesos.

As of 2017, Bacolod City had 92,827 vehicles, an increase of 7,849 from 84,978 in 2016.
