The new pedestrian overpass between Gaisano Mall and Centrio is now open.
As per info, the contractor decided to open the overpass with just some electrical wiring (for the lighting) left to be installed just in time for the city fiestas.
Meanwhile, work continues for the Gaisano entrance linking the overpass and workers estimate 3 days for completion.
Motor vehicles cruising along CM Recto can now move hassle-free between the malls.
Meanwhile, the pedestrian lane near Nazareno Church is now also closed.
Pedestrians crossing CM Recto now won’t have to worry about speeding vehicles.
The only disadvantage for this structure is for the elderly or the physically impaired who need to climb 2 flights of stairs on one side and descend 2 more flights of stairs on the other side.
The new structure is a good shelter for pedestrians from sun and rain.
