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.

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
