Wag umasa: Castelo says traffic crisis act won’t result to a miracle

Talk about managing expectations.

Quezon City Rep. Winston Castelo told the public Thursday (January 19) not to expect too much from the proposed traffic crisis act, which was trumpeted to have passed the committee level Wednesday.

“There are no instant solutions to the traffic congestion in Metro Manila, and conditions could get worse before they get better,” said Castelo, chairman of the House committee on Metro Manila development.

According to the politiko, there won’t be any “instant relief” following the measure’s enactment since the public would still have to make a lot of sacrifices at the beginning.

“The public will still have to make some sacrifices in the early stages of the law’s implementation once it is approved,” Castelo said.

He said that the implementation of the Traffic Crisis Act will require strong cooperation among several agencies including the Department of Transportation, Department of Public Works, Metro Manila Development Authority, and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board.
