MANILA (Mabuhay) -– The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) inaugurated 48 closed circuit televisions (CCTV), dubbed as the Transparency Governance Wall, in its main building as part of its effort to promote transparency and ensure security in the agency.
“The Transparency Governance Wall is a set of 48 CCTVs installed in the MMDA main building, operational 24/7 which will monitor the daily activities of our Offices. It will also strengthen the security in the building,” said MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino.
The CCTVs will cover the agency’s Traffic Engineering Center, Traffic Adjudication Division, Traffic Discipline Office, and the Office of the Chairman.
A widescreen television is installed in the lobby area of the MMDA building which displays the feed of the CCTV cameras for public viewing during office hours.
“Our main objective is transparent governance and accountability. We want the general public to know that all our officials and personnel are performing their duties in an open manner. This is part of our anti-corruption efforts and to ensure effective delivery of public service,” he added.
Recently, the agency inaugurated the MMDA Traffic Mirror which makes available the traffic situation in major roads online.(MNS)
