Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos slammed the simultaneous closure and repair of several bridges in Metro Manila during the “ber” months.
The Ilocos Norte politiko said the repair of the old Santa Mesa Bridge in Manila and the Estrella Pantaleon Bridge in Makati this month is ill-timed.
The Nagtahan flyover and the Guadalupe Bridge are also scheduled to be repaired early next year.
Marcos said the scheduled rehabilitation of the bridges will only worsen Metro Manila traffic.
“That is why I favor banning from the streets all 15-year-old vehicles similar to what Singapore and Barcelona did to soften vehicular congestion,” she sad.
“Una na ako dyan, ako ang reyna ng bulok na sasakyan,” Marcos added.
