To formally kick off the initiative, a ceremonial signing was held last Dec. 6 at the MMDA head office in Makati. Present during the event were MMDA chair Francis Tolentino, Miescor president Jesus Francisco, and Indra managing director Maria Do Carmo Vidoeira. With the IT project, MMDA is hoping to optimize the traffic flow in Metro Manila and consequently increase road travel speed all over the region. The existing traffic signal system?s software, hardware, and communication facilities will be improved to handle a capacity of up to 500 intersections. Traffic signal facilities of 85 priority intersections will be upgraded in the project, together with new supply and installation of 25 outdoor CCTV cameras. The new equipment will be complemented by the construction of a new traffic command center adjacent to the MMDA head office in Makati. The modern traffic signal system is similar to the traffic control systems installed by Indra in Spain, China, Brazil and Colombia, among others. ]]>
