MMDA: How about an Edsa fee?

Jovic Yee, reporting for Philippine Daily Inquirer;

Days after announcing that it would no longer implement the modified odd-even scheme, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said it was studying the possibility of charging a fee for every private vehicle that will use Edsa.

The agency’s chief said the study was being conducted with the help of the government of Singapore, where “congestion pricing” has been in effect since the 1970s.

If implemented, this will technically turn EDSA into a tollway. I suspect people/car owners will still be paying to pass through EDSA, which will make little to no difference in the traffic condition of EDSA.
