Loading/unloading bays need declogging

Please look into the situation in front of Farmers Market in Cubao,

Edsa southbound, where MMDA buses allow passenger buses to load and unload passengers for extended periods of time, causing heavy traffic. The traffic enforcers may have changed their uniform but they are still useless when it comes to manning traffic.—Rudy de Guzman, Better Living, Parañaque City

Pedestrian overpass needs repairs

The pedestrian overpass in front of Shopwise on Commonwealth Avenue needs to be repaired. The steel floor has some cracks which may result in accidents or injuries to pedestrians.

The MMDA should also prohibit vendors from selling their wares on the pedestrian overpass.—Nick Illescas, Barangay Holy Spirit, Quezon City
