Just when most of us weren’t looking, Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio and Congressman Jun Acharon both inaugurated the new traffic signalization systems at the Makar Wharf Junction and the National Highway-Bula Lagao Road-Misa Street at the corner of Robinsons Place.
The momentous occasion happened during the morning of the 34th anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law by former President Ferdinand Marcos on September 21, 2011. It was attended by employees of the City Hall led by Assistant City Administrator Glennville Gonzalez who also emceed the short program at the Robinsons Car Lot, City Engineer’s Office’s Rizza Paces & Mylene Gecosala (who provided the photos here), LTO City Chief Ismael Almanza, management personnel of Robinsons led by Roy Unso, and members of the media, among others.
The whole project costs the city P21.2 million and is the second phase of the Traffic Signalization System Project started during the administration of then Mayor Acharon. The first phase was inaugurated on August 7, 2009. Read about it by clicking here.
In the pipeline are traffic lights at the crossroads of National Highway-NDDU and Aparente Street and at the Bulaong Road-National Highway crossing. What do you think? Where should the next traffic lights be?
