Metro Manila’s monstrous traffic is not a lost cause.

For former Senator JV Ejercito, the traffic situation could be relieved through several measures including hastening the construction of railways in the country.

“My suggestion to relieve Metro Manila’s traffic: 1. Fast track NLEX-SLEX connector, if possible work 24 hrs on it; 2. Prioritize railway projects, PNR North & South, Manila Subway; 3. Make use of present PNR tracks, (new train sets are coming); 4. Car pooling during rush hour,” he tweeted.

“5. Fast track MRT-3 rehab (Sumitomo); 6. Fast track MRT-7; 7. Prioritize LRT-1 extension to Cavite; 8. Fast track MRT-2 extension to Rizal; 9. Malolos-Calamba Commuter train line should be also fast tracked,” he added.

Other suggestions are to fast track development of Clark International Airport new terminal building, continue Jeepney Modernization program, re-rationalize all Public Utility Vehicles franchises, and relocate government agencies to Clark just like Department of Transportation.
