Cagayan de Oro City Promotions and Investments Officer Eileen San Juan has disclosed during a recent business forum that the city government is now studying a new traffic scheme along CM Recto Avenue and Osmeña Street in preparation for the opening of SM CDO2 Premier set sometime in May 2017.
Many motorists and commuters in the city have already foreseen the worsening traffic condition once SM’s second mall opens next year. This plan is laudable as the government can get inputs from all stakeholders at this early. The traffic plan should include but not limited to provisions or identification of loading and unloading areas for PUJs, taxi lanes, no parking areas, PUJ and motorela routes, truck routes, pedestrian crossing, even posting of traffic signs and notices, among others.
Will they also include construction of another pedestrian overpass? This was an issue when Centrio Mall opened in 2012. The overpass was finally completed a few weeks back.
