"There has been some improvements in the traffic. At least 10 minutes ang sinasabing travel time na na-save nila (motorists). That’s just a conservative estimate. We’ll try to improve [on] that", Gunnacao told reporters.

The figure of was based on the initial feedback from the motorists during the first day of deployment of the HPG on EDSA thoroughfare - an order that was instructed by President Benigno Aquino III.

The PNP-HPG was assigned to manage traffic in six major chokepoints on EDSA - Balintawak, Cubao, Ortigas, Shaw Boulevard, Guadalupe and Taft Avenue.

But then, there is still a lot of rooms for improvement when it comes to the performance of the cops deployed to man the traffic in the above mentioned critical areas, Gunnacao said.

He vowed that the HPG will continue to work hard to cut the travel time along EDSA all the more.

He also hoped that the motorists and local government units would cooperate to achieve the said goal.
