Mathematics in the Modern World Proposal


Problem: To propose a sustainable and attainable solution to lessen the traffic crisis in Metro


Background of the Study:

The Philippine custom of jeepney as a mode of transportation has been around for more or less 7

decades. Through effective modernization, the jeepney has remained to be an efficient in the

transport system in the Philippines, especially with a population of over a hundred million.

However, with the increasing population of over twelve million warrant the increased need for

transportation, thus traces Metro Manila’s “Catastrophic Traffic”, Jun Palafox, an urban planner

has elaborated. Although the Philippines Administration lamented on its several transportation

projects, the fact that these projects remain as plans already results to further awareness that the

traffic crisis in Metro Manila will get worse.

If heavy traffic were a human, it must be loathed very much. Congested and heavy traffic brings

tremendous inconvenience. How displeasing could it be being late on your appointment? Just to

reason out you got stuck in the traffic? It stresses us out even before we get to where our

appointment, work, or school is. All the time wasted waiting, the gas combusted all burned out

before reaching your destination. Every waking day in metro manila, heavy traffic is not a shocking

issue anymore. Imagine getting up at 3:00 am in the morning preparing and all just to arrive at

school for a 7:00 am class. Isn’t that a horrible thing to experience? Instead of having an 8-hour

long sleep, you only get 5 hours. And that is unacceptable for students that are dedicated to staying
up all night just to study lessons. That is why our group have come up with the proposal of

circulation in traffic system network development.


The Metropolitan Manila, of the National Capital Region as one of the defined metropolitan areas

of the Philippines. Manila, the 4th most populous national capital with a population of 12, 877, 253

people. The city centre of country’s economic, political and social core were integrated to function

as a single administrative region. As urbanization is concentrated in the area, monocentric urban

center is also a cause of traffic congestion in Metro Manila, a result of high density of people,

vehicles and commerce.

With that said, as simple as knowing traffic laws decreases the risks of car accidents which may

also lead to heavy traffic. Charge for workplace parking area as free parking at workplaces so

workers can bring their cars/motorcycles contributes to the congestion of traffic. If parking areas

are to be paid, less workers will be travelling privately, but rather opt to public transport. Adequate

formulation of holistic and overall strategy that requires a complementary land use and zoning

plan. As transportation in the Philippines is still underdeveloped, we can only bet on improvised

and efficient method to make use of the land provided when mass transit is highly obscured. The

primary mode of transportation, jeepneys, and others like buses that ply longer and suburban

destination in the cities and taxis, must be properly segregated or with the use of proper lane

separation between private vehicles and the everyday-commuter transportation which may help in

decreasing congested roads. To get a circular transportation network that would mainly focus on a

fixed road parameter per road area in Metro Manila ---- separation of commuters' mode of
transportation lane and private vehicles lane. Another probable solution, is the decrease in

vehicular travel especially near developing areas or areas under construction, thus taking another

routes but on a specific time period. Proper management of commuters' lane. And improvised rules

and regulations for the discipline of the commuters which may greatly affect the traffic load in

Metro Manila, since it is noticeable how the commuters, especially during rush hour, congest on

roads to be able to go home from work early as much as possible which is why, both the

commuters’ lane and public vehicles’ lane matter.
