THE HOUSE transportation committee approved a resolution recommending the creation of a traffic crisis inter-agency management council that will address congestion in Metro Manila.

House Resolution 353 was filed by Samar Rep. Edgar S. Sarmiento, who heads the committee.

“This is necessary and important because in Metro Manila alone, we are losing P3.5 billion pesos every day to heavy traffic,” the lawmaker said.

“We are losing time that should have been spent for family and rest,” he said in a separate mobile-phone message.

The council will also address traffic issues in other metropolitan areas other than Metro Manila. — VACF
