ORTIGAS LAND worked with the Pasig City local government to introduce a pedestrian-friendly intersection located along Shaw Boulevard, between Capitol Commons and Barangay Kapitolyo.
“The new infrastructure introduces features that promote a safe environment for pedestrians and cyclists including improved walkways, a pedestrian safety island, and improved bike features,” it said in a statement.
The walkways that connect Unimart Capitol Commons, Gastro at Capitol Commons, and Brgy. Kapitolyo are spacious and PWD-friendly. Pedestrian signages, lights, and safety islands have also been installed.
The Pasig City local government unit (LGU) and Ortigas Land also introduced bike boxes, which are described as designated priority areas for cyclists at intersections.
“The completion of all upgrades will make this intersection the country’s first LGU-led protected bike lane,” it added.
