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.
