Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri made a pitch for improving creating communities are more walkable and bike-friendly in light of the horrendous traffic along EDSA.

Zubiri, in a Facebook post, proposed the construction of elevated walkways and bike lanes along EDSA as alternative avenues of mobility.

“Commuters over cars. Yan po ang sagot sa traffic sa EDSA, at yan po ang inihain ko sa plenaryo sa aking privilege speech kanina. Kailangan po natin ng walkable, bike-able cities, at para makamit iyan, dapat pong makapagtayo na tayo ng elevated walkways at bike lanes sa EDSA bilang alternative avenues of mobility,” he said.

“Noong 2016 ko pa ito unang dinala sa plenaryo, at hanggang ngayon nasa feasibility stage pa rin ito. Ngayon po ilalaban po natin na maisama ito sa budget at tuloy nang masimulan ang proyekto,” he added.
