City Government Explores Toll System to Ease Traffic in Central Business District

In a recent development on March 24, the City Government’s Public Order and Safety Division (POSD) conducted a project study interview involving private vehicle owners along Leonard Wood Road, near PhilHealth.

The purpose of these interviews was to evaluate the feasibility of implementing a toll system in the central business district.

The proposed plan includes using the number coding zone within the district, with toll gates placed at the entry points. The toll charges would be applicable during peak hours from 7 am to 9 am and 4 pm to 6 pm, with a grace period between 9 am and 4 pm.

During the interviews, participants were presented with various potential toll fees ranging from 100 pesos to 465 pesos. They were asked to specify their preferred affordable fee, their maximum budget, and the threshold at which they considered the fee excessive.

Additionally, it was emphasized that free parking would be offered within the zone for those willing to pay the toll charges. This initiative is designed to ease traffic congestion and improve the overall traffic management system in the central business district.

The City Government is actively considering this toll system as a potential solution to enhance traffic flow and alleviate congestion in the busy business district. | MULA, JHANILLE RYLE
