The City Traffic Management Office (CTMO) is set to have new traffic lights mounted and set up in major roads in the city next month.
According to CTMO chief Tony Samante, seven street corners will be installed with traffic lights that have countdown timers.
The new traffic lights will be posted in CPG corner Calceta St., Maria Clara St., Borja St., Del Pilar St., and H. Grupo Street. Another unit will be placed in front of city hall heading towards Island City Mall.
Samante noted that the said corners are the busiest areas in the city particularly after school and work hours.
Traffic lights are really needed in the provinceâ€™s capital to control traffic as it is projected that the number of vehicles in the city will continue to grow, he added
Old traffic lights will be moved and used in new areas where there are no traffic lights yet.
The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) had previously studied the cityâ€™s traffic and pointed out areas that need traffic lights.
The authorities from the MMDA said that the flow of traffic in the city is not problematic yet.
However, it was noted that illegally parked vehicles in the streets are causing congestion in some areas in Tagbilaran City. (with reports from Allen Doydora)
