La Trinidad sets up traffic mgmt. board
by Ofelia C. Empian

To manage its growing traffic woes, the La Trinidad municipal council approved an ordinance creating the La Trinidad Traffic Management Board (LTTMB).

The municipality aims to empower the LTTMB to continuously observe and study and formulate comprehensive plans and policy as well as impose the traffic rules in the capital town of Benguet.

“Whereas, active management and coordination in the control of traffic is a viable and effective strategy to improve the safety, efficiency and reliability of traffic on and between freeways and streets,” the ordinance reads.

The LTTMB shall be composed of a multi-sectoral group chaired by the mayor and co-chaired by the vice mayor. Its members will be the chairmen of the council’s committees on peace and order, finance and on public utilities and the municipal planning officer and town engineer.

Also part of the group are the chief of police of La Trinidad and chief of the police traffic section, legal officer and representatives from the Land Transportation Office, Department of Public Works and Highways, the public transport sector, academe, business and civil society organizations. 

“The municipality of La Trinidad recognizing the measure as urgent in its desire to formulate a concrete, efficient and effective traffic management plan requires the creation of a multi-sectoral group that shall be granted with the authority of studying and formulating means of managing our already congested roads and highways,” it stated.

Municipal Tourism Officer Valred Olsim said they acknowledge the extent of traffic in the municipality, which affects tourists going to and from the town.

“We are doing our best to discuss with the local government unit heads, the traffic situation in the valley,” he said.

Since La Trinidad is interconnected with Baguio City, tourists make side trip to the municipality.

Olsim said with the creation of new destinations in the municipality aside from the Strawberry Farm, they are expecting more tourists to flock to the town especially during summer.
