MCU footbridge in Caloocan to shut down for a month
MANILA, Philippines — The Manila Central University (MCU) footbridge in Monumento Station, Caloocan City, will be temporarily closed for one month, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said on Friday.
The closure will begin from October 2 to November 2 to give way to the construction and rehabilitation of Edsa Busway Monumento Station.
These projects include the installation of surveillance systems and the extension and widening of existing structures in the area.
DOTr said it intends to make the footbridge and other structures in the station more accessible, especially to persons with disabilities.
Because of the closure of the MCU footbridge, pedestrians and commuters are being advised to use the Edsa-Boni Serrano (5th street) footbridge when crossing in the meantime.
