MIGEDC-JICA TWG trains on traffic management

Iloilo City (1 March) -- The MIGEDC-JICA Technical Working Group (TWG) will undergo another training to hone their know-how on Transport and Traffic on March 3-4 at the UPV Training Center here.

A press release from the MIGEDC-JICA Project Team said the training will focus on the topics of Road Pricing, Environmental and Social Costs, Public Transport Policy Trends and Traffic Safety, intended to familiarize the transport sector group with the evolving issues and problems of traffic in the MIGEDC.

The training will be conducted by a team of experts from the National Center for Transportation Studies (NCTS) of U.P. Diliman, which is a recognized authority on national transport and traffic concerns operating with national government agencies.

The same team of experts had conducted a five-day Basic Seminar on Transportation Planning, Traffic Management and Engineering and Traffic Law Enforcement in September last year.

Last February 25, some members of the TWG and the information technology personnel were given exposure to the Geographical Information System (GIS) in an orientation workshop held at the UPV Computer Laboratory.

Dr. Glenn Aguilar of the UPV gave the orientation, emphasizing the importance of the GIS as a mapping tool for establishing data benchmarking.

The TWG members representing the member-municipalities of MIGEDC, namely Pavia, Sta. Barbara, Oton, San Miguel, Guimaras, Iloilo City, are being assisted by the JICA as a partner entity, to develop their capacity in formulating Traffic Management Agenda of their LGUs and of the MIGEC in the long run.
