MMDA mulls designating rightmost lane of Edsa for motorcycles

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority is studying the possibility of designating the rightmost lane of EDSA for motorcycles.

According to the agency, newly-appointed MMDA chairman Benhur Abalos said that the full opening of the South Luzon Expressway-North Luzon Expressway connector is expected to ease traffic on EDSA by 30 percent.

The MMDA added, “Abalos also vowed to address the issue on U-turn slots with elevated bus ramps and hinted on putting motorcycle lanes on the right-most lane and also envisions pedestrian-friendly thoroughfares.”

Abalos also vowed to focus on the traffic situation and solid waste management in Metro Manila by working closely with concerned government agencies.

A former mayor of Mandaluyong City, Abalos recently replaced Danilo Lim as MMDA chairman. Lim, who confirmed in December last year that he tested positive for COVID-19, died due to cardiac arrest.
