With the planned pedestrian overpass between Centrio and Gaisano Mall now in the pipeline, these scenes showing pedestrians crossing CM Recto Avenue between the two large malls will be a thing of the past.
This originally placed a few meters ahead but was transferred to the current location as both eastbound and westbound vehicles are forced to stop at a shorter section from the junction at Corrales Avenue due to the pedestrian crossing. When the overpass become operational, pedestrians will have to walk up the stairs to use it. However, there will still be hard-headed individuals who are too lazy to use the overpass and would rather risk their lives in crossing the road. Hopefully, authorities will install barriers tall enough to discourage “jaywalkers”.
