Mayor okays "smarter roads" measure

BAGUIO CITY – Mayor Mauricio Domogan has ratified the city council's "Smarter Roads Ordinance" that seeks to improve traffic flow in the Summer Capital.

Ordinance No. 73, series of 2018, authored by aldermen Mylen Yaranon and Benny Bomogao, incorporates the following concepts: No stopping within 10 meters before and after intersections; use the Baguio City Police Office-Traffic Management Unit as a resource to direct traffic in some intersections; reduce the number of one-way streets within the central business district (CBD) area; and implementation of modern roundabouts at identified critical intersections and where applicable.

Also included are the implementation of transit lanes, self-enforcing road markings and public transport stops (loading and unloading zones); use of thermoplastic paint for all road markings; location of new pedestrian crossings; changes to promote traffic calming in the CBD and some highways; and information sharing of new routing with Google Maps, Waze, and others.

The ordinance directs the City Engineering Office's traffic and transportation management division to lead in the implementation of its provisions.

"Improving our roads or streets and introducing changes in policy will improve traffic flow and thereby ease traffic congestion in the city," the measure states.-gaby keith
