PROJECT WATCH: Centrio-Gaisano Overpass now open

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.

    Congratulations to all those who made this possible. It’s a
    big help to ease traffic.

    Yes, currently its a big problem for the disabled and wheelchair-bound, now that the street-level pedestrian crossing has been closed. It is a pity Centrio-Ayala, unlike Gaisano, has not cooperated and opened up direct access on their second floor to the footbridge.

    It’s a pity, if only maybe the city could invest a little bit more, to make the pedestrian overpass “better” – usable by our impaired fellows and not an eyesore to what is a rapidly developing city.

    If it’s not beautiful, people will not take care of it, and so in some future this pedestrian overpass will most likely be demolished, or remade to be “more worthy” of a very competitive city. It’s too bad long term pro-active solutions were thrown out the window.
