MMDA Replace Concrete Barriers in the Bus Lane Along EDSA Due to Several Mishap
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) eyes to replace the concrete barriers designated for bus lanes along EDSA due to several mishaps.
Since the concrete barriers were installed on EDSA, several road accidents occurred involving the concrete barriers. Based on our previous article, MMDA records 1 mishap per day after the installation.
MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia said Wednesday, the replacements of barriers have been decided after reviewing a recent video that has gone viral online of a bus hitting lane dividers. He also added that it will be sponsored by the private sector.
“In the next few weeks po, lalagyan po natin ‘yan yung bollards na mas manipis po ‘yun,” he said.
However, based on the report of GMA News, the concrete barriers will remain at the loading and unloading areas for commuters’ safety. “’Yun pong ating loading and unloading base—200 meters before, 1000 meters after—lalagyan rin natin ng concrete barriers ‘yan na dikit-dikit,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) issues a show cause order to a bus firm for over speeding on the bus lane and damaging several concrete barriers placed along EDSA-Santolan on Monday.
