THE METROPOLITAN MANILA Development Authority (MMDA) is planning to build a fence along EDSA’s yellow lanes to restrict public buses, a move that is seen to help in decongesting traffic, according to MMDA General Manager Jose Arturo S. Garcia Jr. “The whole EDSA stretch, we will put a fence. Ang opening lang ‘yan ay (The only openings would be for) loading and unloading bays, intersection, and establishments with a minimum three-meter distance,” Mr. Garcia said on Wednesday. He added that they are targeting to have the fence structures before the year ends. Meanwhile, Mr. Garcia said they will file a motion for reconsideration on the court injunction against the provincial bus ban along EDSA. He said the Office of the Solicitor General and the MMDA legal team are already preparing the appeal in time for the scheduled hearing next week. Despite the court order, the dry run on the ban still pushed through on Wednesday. — Vince Angelo C. Ferreras
