Proposed underpass at Agora junction under study




A proposal for an underpass at Agora Junction shown in the map is now being studied by the city government.

As shown, the underpass is from the Ororama area going under CM Recto Avenue and heading north towards Agora area or Market City. This has to be studied carefully taking into consideration the existing drainage infrastructure in the area whether these need to be further improved or incorporated in the underpass project. When materialized, this could be the third underpass in the city. The first two are in Limketkai Center (1) near Robinsons; and (2) currently under construction at East Concourse extension at proposed hypermart section.

In this proposal, eastbound and westbound vehicles cruising along CM Recto Avenue won’t have to stop the said junction. I would also recommend if possible, vehicles from the west intending to turn left to Agora to turn right at Limketkai Avenue then turn left at former Ororama Megacenter then then head north using the underpass. The problem would be vehicles from Agora turning left eastbound… perhaps they can still use the underpass and turn either right to towards Limketkai Avenue then to CM Recto or left towards Macajalar Road and exit at Pimentel Shop.

    Na, nabuing na man siguro ni atong city government uy. Kahibaw baya na sila na gabaha na pirmi diha nga area maski gamay ra ang ulan. Gabangka na man gani atong pwerteng kusuga sa ulan. Mag-underpass na an hinuon! Toinks! Intawon, you better change to a way, way, better plan mga Sir ug Ma’am. Basin end up ani, nagwaldas-waldas lang mo sa kwarta sa atong syudad! 

  6. wabsh says:

    Ang purpose ani kay para tigsala s baha. Kung magulan tanan tubig kay paingon sa underpass. Magic! Wala nay ba!haha

  7. adiboy says:

    mas gusto ko magtukod ug daghan island infront sa dalan, para dili mag U-turn ang mga sakyanan, gakaulit kog tan-aw.. labi na deha sa limketkai front sa MUST ug sa front Gaisano. naa lagi mga island pero toara walay mentenance, panget ang mga bulak hahai.

  8. adiboy says:

    ok raman seguro ni nga project, murag lisod botangan og underpass outside CBD kai tambayan ra sa mga shabukoi pareha nako nyahaha, murag ang naka problema betaw ang drainage deha sa front sa MUSt murag dili ga drain ang tubig, unya ang creek betaw deha sa ketkai kai ga dako ang yuta kailangan ug kalot. napuno nana sa yuta ang drainage ilalom sa must ug ketkai tungod sa mga nangabagtik nga mga yuta. ug ABOG keyo ang dalan, walai mentenance sa dalan deha cm recto??? dapat unta uy every 3 hours mag check sa dalan besan limited nga mga trabahante, gamay raman tawon ang dalan sa cdo dili pajod malimpyohan

    no need nman mokalot dha para maghimo underpass oi considering ang baha sa ato ciudad dli mana madeny mas maau pa cguro roundabout ang buhaton dha insakto tuyukan or over pass .. lets be realitic ky mag kng mag underpass dugang na pud na nga problema saon paghubas sa tubig pag mag baha… otherwise maypa unahon sa na problema sa baha sa ato ciudad aya ta mangandoy sa unsa pay lain maayo sa ato ciudad

  10. degie says:

    ok raman siguro, after all, studyhan paman nila.. i agree with adiboy, we need island at the center. for beautification purposes and kanang pag u-turn.. ngil.ad tan-awon

  11. ungas says:

  12. goldenskyscraper says:

    outside xa sa cbd pero busy sya nga intersection. Lain man gd kai duol ra sya sa flyover recto. Human nimu ug up, padown na pud ka hehe but its just my suggestion anyway. Im not really into anti underpass in the reported junction… Unta dli gamay ang underpass… Unta lang.

  13. degie says:

    oh no!!1 The R.A. 10175 at cdodev… let’s all be carefull.. hehe i hope davao people who keeps on bullying this site will know already their limitations.. i hope this would eventually stop them from bullying us.. i won’t tell who are they but i guess you already know them..

  14. degie says:

    i want something that is a short-cut from district 2 to uptown..something that we need not to got to carmen then macanhan to uptown cdo. hhee

  15. goldenskyscraper says:

    I want a monorail frm sm uptown to sm downtown xD

  16. Dude says:

    Diba supposedly, Flyover man unta to ila buhaton? Ang flyover ni abot sa ilalom na himo underpass. hehehe. :)

    Pero i don’t think feasible ang underpass sa pagka karon… Drainage first before underpass. :) hehe

  17. adiboy says:

    at degie: lisod man kai bukid baya tapos naa ang yuta sa xavier university. dedto ra ang short cut sa taguanao ug  bulua-iponan road. ka agi naka dedto baby ai degie?

  23. Martinique says:

    very katkat project, dili feasible sa usa ka bahaanan na syudad

  24. cdonative says:

    yes spread the growth to the west, east, uptown, lumbia, macasandig & other outskirts barangays… these can be done by proper zoning/ districting. Strict implementation of building parking code forcing businesses to go area with ample parking spaces.

  29. Edwin Hall says:

    Bril idea. Just looking at Jeddah Saudi Arabia been doing for a few years building combinations of under and over passes Its improved traffic flow big time. But easier to make all slow moving traffic to use the right hand lane and overtake in the left hand lane and ban jeepneys off the major Highways.
