Reducing Traffic on EDSA – applying science and sound engineering principles

The HPG and MMDA solution to reducing EDSA stand-still traffic is making things worse. Putting those concrete and plastic dividers along EDSA is creating too much skin friction similar to water flow inside a water hose and pipe. A parallel plate inside a pipe is known in engineering to create skin friction that prevents the faster flow of the liquid inside the pipe.

That is the same phenomena experienced now along the entire stretch of EDSA. The more barriers you put up, the more traffic you create. More »
