DOTr: Construction of Edsa bike lanes to kick off on June 13

/ 01:31 PM June 12, 2020

MANILA, PHILIPPINES – The construction of bicycle lanes along Edsa will start on Saturday, June 13 amid the growing number of cyclists as COVID-19 quarantine and health protocols resulted in a shortage of public transportation units and options.

The DOTr, in a social media post, said Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade sealed an agreement with Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Danny Lim to expedite the construction of bicycle lanes.
