Initially, the “no window hours” on EDSA and C5 was supposedly to be implemented at the end of the month. However, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has implemented a dry-run of the new traffic scheme last October 12 to 14. Moreover, they said that actual implementation will start on Monday, October 17.
Based from the dry-run, MMDA accessed it and found it as a “relative success.”
According to MMDA, the dry-run of not having window hours on EDSA and C5 (and a few other cities in Metro Manila) has reduced travel time by 3 minutes.
The original target was to reduce travel time by 5 minutes, and apparently, 3 minutes is not that bad.
What do you think of the “no window hours” policy? Will it really be effective in the long run?
