MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Don’t let Senator Robin Padilla’s moustache-combing video at a Senate hearing fool you. He’s hard at work trying to propose innovative projects that will benefit the country, among them the establishment of cable cars in Metro Manila.
Padilla had proposed the project earlier last year but he waited until his return from the Alps in Switzerland to solidify his proposal.
He is now in consultation with transportation experts to come up with a blueprint of what he is calling the MMCA, or Metro Manila Cable Authority that will undertake and manage cable car projects throughout the Metropolis, similar to what he saw in Switzerland.
Padilla is confident that cable cars are the ultimate solution to Metro Manila’s traffic nightmares and would make travel between and among cities in NCAR a breeze.
Imagine traveling from Valenzuela to the Port of Manila in under 10 minutes!
