MMDA streams EDSA traffic situation online

Motorists and commuters wanting to know the traffic situation along certain points of Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) may now do so online, via real-time footage.

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said the live stream dubbed "Traffic Mirror" is taken from its traffic monitoring cameras along the highway:

It said the MMDA owns and operates the traffic monitoring cameras, though the traffic channel is produced by NowPlanet.TV of Information Capital Technology Ventures Inc.

"You can view this channel by using your desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile phone," it said.

But as of 11 a.m. Monday, not all the nine screens on the Traffic Mirror page were online.

Only those at SM Megamall, White Plains, P. Tuazon and Nepa-Q Mart were streaming, while those at Green Meadows, Marcos Highway, Taft Avenue, Ayala and Orense were "off-air." — TJD, GMA News
