According to Brig. Gen. Roberto Fajardo, director of the Philippine National Police Highway Patrol Group (HPG), the travel time between Cubao and Makati along EDSA to five minutes is possible, but only during off-peak hours.

In a simulation conducted by the HPG at around 1.am, it only took four minutes and 58 seconds travel time from Cubao to Makati.


However, they were running at a 70 kilometers per hour which is beyond the 60kph speed limit on EDSA - while being escorted by HPG motorcycles.

Fajardo said that various government agencies are working to reduce travel time from Cubao to Makati along EDSA.

That’s the President’s order. So we will do our best. Actually, iyun ang challenge sa amin, kapag sinabi ni Presidente (That’s the challenge to us, and if the President says so), we will do it,” Fajardo said.

Duterte recently said that travel time between Cubao and Makati will be improved by December.

You don’t have to worry about traffic. Travel time from Cubao to Makati could be reduced to five minutes by December. You just wait,” Duterte said.
