The Department of Transportation (DOTr) will push for the passage of a measure that will alleviate the traffic congestion in the country once the next Congress opens.

“We will pursue in a manner that it will not distract us from the primary projects kasi may deadline. Kasi ang utak ko ngayon ay magtapos ng project. Kailangan namin two and a half to three years. Kami ay gagawa lang ng tama (We will pursue in a manner that it will not distract us from the primary projects because there is a deadline. My mindset is to finish projects. We need two and a half to three years. We will do what is right)," said Tugade in an interview with reporters .

“The legislators should put that into their agenda. As far as we are concerned, we have submitted all the documents,” he added.
The DOTr statement follows the earlier intention of former  Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Francis Tolentino to refile a measure pushing for emergency powers that has been pending in both chambers of Congress for more than two years.

The incoming senator is currently among the ones in the winning circle in the senatorial race. 
“Nabanggit ko iyon noong campaign na kung kinakailangang ire-file iyong emergency powers, gagawin po natin 'yan, Tolentino said.
