Mayor Marcy Teodoro’s administration is undertaking more road widening projects in Marikina City to help address traffic congestion, especially during rush hour.

Solving the traffic problem in Marikina is one of the priorities of Mayor Marcy since this would help attract more businessmen to invest in the city, boosting the local economy and providing more jobs to Marikeños.  

“Mas malapad ang daan, mas makabubuti sa kaunlaran ng lungsod,” said Mayor Marcy.

The Engineering Department of the Marikina City Government is now busy constructing additional road along the corner of Gil Fernando Avenue and Sumulong Highway.



Last year, the City Government also added a new lane along Toyota Ave. and widened the McDonald’s Ave., resulting in the faster flow of traffic in the area including Jacamar and Chanyungco Streets near the Freedom Park and Marikina City Hall.


The City Government also constructed loading bays for public utility vehicles (PUVs) last year. This will allow PUVs to load and unload passengers in designated areas to avoid inconvenience to all motorists, commuters and pedestrians.
