In light of its booming economy, Bicolanos should brace themselves for heavier traffic, according to Rep. Rodel Batocabe and the AKO Bicol Partylist.
Batocabe foresees similar traffic problems to that of Metro Manila happening in Bicol where the economic growth brought about traffic problems, and he warns Bicolano motorists to make the necessary adjustments to avoid dreaded traffic problems.
Batocabe and his team promise that if and when AKO Bicol makes a return to congress, he will push for a modern train system in Bicol, where he hopes will be the primary mode of transportation for Bicolanos.
He opines the train will be a more effective transit system because roads will not have to be widened. He also wishes to prioritize the modernization of the Bicol piers and airports.
