Construction of the pedestrian overpass linking Centrio Mall and Gaisano Mall is now underway.
As shown in the following photos, one of the columns along the Centrio side can now be seen. Actually, excavation works began a couple of weeks ago but was initially assumed as part of the ongoing drainage rehab works. However, when workers started to bring in steel bars at the site and this concrete foundation began to emerge, the thought of the proposed overpass suddenly came by.
Meanwhile, on the Gaisano side (actually beside Nazareno Church), initial excavation has been undertaken.
When this pedestrian overpass is done, motorists won’t have to stop at the pedestrian crossing lane…unless of course some hard headed pedestrians will still jump over the island.
