PIA Press Release

MIGEDC-JICA constructs jeepney bay in Iloilo

Iloilo City (29 October) -- The MIGEDC-JICA Project Team is starting with the preparations for the construction of a Jeepney Bay along Timawa Avenue this city, considered as a traffic bottleneck.

By virtue of Ordinance No. 2009-326, the Project Team gains headway in its previously designed Social Experiment on easing traffic flow in the area.

In a press release, Project consultant Prof. Lorenza Padojinog said the site is immediately next to an intersection of Infante-Delgado-Timawa, where public utility vehicles and motorists impede the smooth flow and inflow of traffic.

Padojinog also said that making the situation worse is the prevalence of illegal parking along the sidewalk of the Iloilo Doctors' Hospitals from the corner of Timawa Avenue up to approximately 75 meters stretch of shoulder of the road.

Situated on the area are UPV campus, along Infante, the Iloilo Doctors' Hospital both on Infante and right side of Timawa Avenue and the Iloilo Doctors' College on the left of Timawa Avenue.

Padojinog said the construction of the Jeepney Bay will ease the loading and unloading of passengers and will allow other motorists to drive through without obstruction.

The bay will measure 40 meters long and about 2.25 meters wide, freed from all parking.

Traffic Surveys by the subcontractors are undertaken October 7 and 8, while interview surveys on October 8-10, after which construction begins until October 30.

The Team said that a traffic survey of vehicular movements will be done right after the bay is completed, and when it would improve traffic situation, the bay will be maintained and replicated in other areas of the city where these are needed.

The project is among those funded by JICA, under the Social Experiment Scheme of the MIGEDC-JICA partnership. (MIGEDC-JICA/PIA6/ESS) [top]
