Philippines: EDSA Greenways Project

Sovereign (Public) Project | 51117-003 Status: Proposed

The project aims to improve the pedestrian environment in four areas (Balintawak, Cubao, Guadalupe and Taft station areas) along with Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA). The current pedestrian facilities on EDSA are poorly designed and pedestrians suffer from unsafe and uncomfortable pedestrian environment. The project will build a total of 5 kilometers of covered elevated walkways in the four locations, including the construction of new walkways, replacement and widening of existing footbridges. Elevators will be attached to the elevated walkways to address the needs of the elderly, women, persons with disability, and people traveling with small children. The elevated walkways will be connected to railway stations and help to promote the use of public transportation.
