The horizontal steel beams of the pedestrian overpass between Centrio and Gaisano Malls in Cagayan de Oro City was installed overnight and this morning, the steel structure is now in place.

As shown in the following photos, one can already foresee the benefits of this overpass once completed.

The overpass can already be seen from Recto-Osmena Junction.

Motorists can soon freely cruise along between both malls. Unless of course, pedestrians who will continue to ignore the overpass and instead crossing the road at their own risk.

  • Ana

    after pila ka years naa na jud overpass!!!!

  • RFM

    To enforce people to use the overpass without the need for an RTA is to put up a fence of 7 feet along the island.

  • “pedestrians who will continue to ignore the overpass and instead crossing the road at their own risk.” Question! Who is at fault, the pedestrian or the driver? .

    • Super Bisdak

      Of course it should be the pedestrian’s fault. However, the expenses incurred for his medication shall be shouldered by the driver.

      • If it is the pedestrians risk, and the pedestrians fault, why are expenses incurred by the no-risk, no-fault driver?

        • de facto

          mr farrel, dont be stupid. any action that will result to death/injury is punishable by law.

  • SuperLove

  • lamboCDO

    ang importante dlinata mutabok sa dalan hehe

  • joseas

    haha kay tungod sa magduot man ang tawo mugamit ani labi na both mall goers to ayala and gaisano ang magamit ani (considering the volume of people) , some would surely resort using the pedestrian lane dha dapit sa may intersection. didto na pud na dayon magdasok. Hopefully, ang pedestrian mufollow sa traffic rules, di basta basta magtabok tabok.

    • SuperKawaii

      What if instead sa maghimo ug overpass kay diha nalang magtabok sa intersection? ang style dayun mura ra sa shibuya-tokyo, japan, ilado gihapon na nga lugar sa japan nga gatapad ang mga malls! Iadjust ra ang counter sa traffic lights like naay instances nga magpause ang counter sa tanan traffic lights para mahatagan ug pila ka minutes makatabok tanan pedestrians then mas paluwagon pa ang pedestrian lane ana nga intersection ang style mura ra sa shibuya. Mas effective ug cheaper pa unta na kaysa maghimo ug overpass.

      • PAULj07

        Shibuya timesquare yes its wider and larger and millions of visitors around the world go there but they dont put a overpass and now thats been mostly like the recognized when it comes to their to the thousand of people cross that intersection every stops its funny compared to this small 4 lanes road and needs to have a overpass i wonder how the city planning works -_-

        • joseas

          Yes, it cheaper jud sya. I understand that they are finding ways to reduce the heavy traffic situation at that particular area but they could have done better than building a ‘narrow’ overpass. I’l give them the benefit of the doubt. I hope that it does solve the traffic situation and that people would not resort to finding other unsafe area to cross if they’l found out how inconvenient it is to use the overpass.

        • SuperKawaii

          4 lanes? Hmmm. The last time i checked CM Recto has 6 lanes and Corrales has 4 lanes. And I think it is suitable for wider pedestrian lane..
