Kids Growing Up in The Village

Three years ago, when there was very few residents in the village, the parking space was deserted. And this is where my daughter learned how to ride a bike.

Odd-even traffic scheme now in force along F. Legaspi Bridge in Pasig

Floodway – F. Legazpi Bridge during rainy season.

MANILA — The city government of Pasig started Tuesday the implementation of an odd-even traffic scheme in one of its major roads.

In an advisory posted at the Facebook page of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), the city’s Traffic and Parking Management Office (TPMO) said it is now enforcing an ‘experimental’ odd-even traffic scheme at the westbound lane of the F. Legaspi Bridge, which stretches from East Bank Road to M. Eusebio Avenue.

Under the scheme, all vehicles with plate numbers ending at 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 are prohibited from passing through the road on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Meanwhile, vehicles with plate numbers ending at 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 are barred from passing through the road on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Affected motorists are advised to take alternate routes.

Prior to this, Pasig City has been implementing the MMDA’s Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program (UVVRP) also known as the ‘number coding’ scheme, with window hours from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The UVVRP is a traffic decongestion measure which bans both private and public utility vehicles from plying Metro Manila’s roads on weekday peak hours

The province was cited in the 2014 Annual Financial Audit on Local Government Units as the second highest earning province in the country with assets of P8.059 billion, second to Cebu.

Rizal Governor Rebecca Ynares expressed her gratitude to the COA report and lauded the employees of the provincial government for a job well done since the province has maintained strict compliance with the set of rules governing good governance and sound financial management.

The province has been a consistent awardee of the Seal of Good Housekeeping (SGHK), a prestigious award that all LGUs aspire for. Rizal province is one of the Silver Grade awardees of SGHK for 2012.

Meanwhile, of the 1,479 municipalities that have been audited, COA listed Cainta as No. 1 with total assets of P2.826 billion, leading three other municipalities from the province of Rizal that also made it to the top 10; the other municipalities are Binangonan with P1.265 billion and Taytay with 1.159 billion

Is this Progress??!

Seven years ago the traffic going to Ortigas at 7am starts piling up after the Kabisig St. Motorcycles zipping thru the traffic are rare. Since 2 years ago, traffic reaches even farther than CV and it's not even 7am yet!

This picture is taken around 530 am. Back in 2008, we had to walk for 100m towards the police station. That's where (in front of the hardware) tricycles back then would wait for their passengers. At 7am, you can still get a ride in 5m!

Heavy traffic at 530 am along the driveway? Yes, since 3 years ago if I am not mistaken.
