The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has failed to implement or complete P803.4-million worth of projects to improve the flow of traffic in Metro Manila, the Commission on Audit (COA) has found.

In its annual audit report, COA attributed the MMDA’s failure to implement projects to inadequate planning and absence of coordination between concerned local government units, communities, and other agencies.

Among the projects which the MMDA failed to complete were the upgrading of traffic signal system in Metro Manila and the construction of P77-million worth of footbridges.

Some phases of the MMDA’s traffic signalization project were incomplete due to the absence of funding approval from the Department of Budget and Management and alleged disputes with contractors.

The MMDA also said that the ongoing construction of MRT 7, late issuance of a permit from LGUs, complaints from affected establishments, relocation and coordination of affected waterline and high tension of wire of Maynilad and PLDT and coordination regarding affected traffic signal facilities as stated in the submitted suspension orders.
