MMDA To Put Up Additional Hazard Markers on EDSA

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has revealed its plan to put up additional warning road signs on EDSA.

MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia said there is a need to augment the present number of hazard markers for better visibliity for motorists plying the major thoroughfare everyday for additonal road guidance.

“Upon the instruction of Chairman Danilo Lim, I have already directed our Traffic Engineering Center to start the installation of extra hazard markers to supplement the existing ones already in place,” Garcia said.

Garcia ensures that hazard markers will be positioned on top of each barrier and will be visible even at night.

A van overturned along EDSA-Guadalupe northbound near Go Hotel Thursday night after crashing into the concrete barriers.

Three were injured, including two passengers.

The driver, Dennis Ortiz, admitted he was drunk and did not see the concrete barriers placed on the left side as separators for the dedicated bus lane.

Bottles of liquor were also seen at the vehicle. The MMDA, at the start of the general community quarantine, has installed concrete barriers along a portion of EDSA to separate buses from private vehicles.
