They now serve as main gateways to Iloilo City,easing traffic congestion. MIGEDC was created to formulate,coordinate and monitor programs, projects and activities for the accelerationof the economic growth and development of its member local government units,namely Iloilo City, the municipalities of Oton, San Miguel, Pavia, Leganes, andSanta Barbara in Iloilo province, and Guimaras province. However, the rapid rise of Iloilo andthe influx of tourists, Drilon acknowledged, caused traffic congestionsparticularly during rush hours (from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to7:30 p.m.). The flyover at the intersection of theSen. Benigno S. Aquino Jr. Avenue and President Corazon Aquino Avenue inBarangay Ungka II, Pavia is one of four that DPWH is building to ease trafficcongestion on mayor points leading in and out of Iloilo City. A rerouting of vehicles could ease thetraffic bottleneck there, according to Jeck Conlu, head of the Public Safetyand Transportation Management Office of the city government. Private vehicles may be made to takealternative routes, he said during yesterday’s meeting of the Metro IloiloGuimaras Economic and Development Council (MIGEDC).

Aquino Jr. Avenue and the14-kilometer President Corazon Aquino Avenue in Barangay Ungka II, Pavia, Iloilo.It may worsen the traffic congestion in the area albeit temporarily. Ilonggo senator Franklin Drilon wholobbied for these flyovers said, “We have to move quickly to solve this trafficcongestion which irks drivers, commuters and tourists. We must prevent beingcompared to Metro Manila and Cebu City in terms of the gravity of traffic. Itwill not be good for the image of the city that we have worked hard on forseveral years.”center_img The 10-lane, 15-kilometer Sen.
