MMDA Shows Results of the "No Window Hour" Implementation (Photos)

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority showcased on their official Facebook Page the results of the "No Window Hours Policy," which yielded positive effects to the worsening traffic in Metro Manila.

Numerous photos were posted online by MMDA showing the significant improvements of EDSA after the implementation of the no window hours policy.

According to MMDA General Manager Tim Orbos said that there will be some adjustments to be implemented next week after the Metro Manila Council (MMC) noted that the dry run of the policy yielded positive effects to traffic.

Based upon the recommendations of the MMC, composed of the region's mayors noted starting next week, the unified vehicular volume reduction program (UVVRP) or number coding scheme will be implemented from 7:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. instead of only up to 7:00 P.M.

Under the "No Window Hour" scheme, drivers cannot traverse roads where number coding scheme is implemented from 13 hours and violators will face a possible fine of P300.00. The scheme is now implemented only in selected areas but there are suggestions that it will be implemented in 17 other major thoroughfares next week.

Roads to be included in the enforcement of no “window hours” policy are Recto Avenue, Pres. Quirino Qvenue, Araneta Avenue, Carlos P. Garcia Avenue, Taft Avenue, South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), Shaw Boulevard, Ortigas Avenue, Magsaysay Boulevard, Aurora Boulevard, Quezon Avenue, Commonwealth Avenue, A. Bonifacio Avenue, Rizal Avenue, Del Pan, Marcos Highway and MacArthur Highway.

The MMC, composed of 17 mayors in the metropolis, is the governing body and policy-making body of the MMDA.
