MANDAUE CITY, Cebu — Traffic flow at the intersection of United Nations (UN) Avenue and D. M. Cortes Street in Mandaue City is expected to improve as soon as motorist start to familiarize the new scheme that is now implemented in the area, says Architect Florentino Nimor Jr., executive director of Traffic Enforcement Agency of Mandaue (TEAM).

Nimor said that the inconvenience now affecting motorist is just part of the “birth pains” experienced with the introduction of something new.

“Slow moving ang mga vehicles labi na coming from Cansaga kay wala pa sila kahibalo og asa moagi o moliko. Learning period pa pod ni sa uban,” Nimor said.

(Vehicles coming from (the) Cansaga (Bay bridge) are slow moving because drivers are still unfamiliar of the new route. Others are still on the learning stage.)
