ITDP-China develops greenway designs for Manila.
ITDP is wrapping up work on the Manila greenway designs and presented greenway and parking plans to local stakeholders in an area named Kapitolyo. The proposed greenways, BRT and parking reform in the area will greatly benefit the livability of the area and attract more visitors to its upcoming restaurant scene. Critically important for residents is that the greenway and BRT plan combined with parking and streetscape improvements will result in less car traffic in the community. Measures to modify traffic circulation will also also mean less traffic cutting through Kapitolyo using United Street as a shortcut to access Pioneer Road and EDSA. ITDP’s proposed plans regarding BRT, greenways and parking reforms in Kapitolyo were enthusiastically endorsed by the representatives of the community who were present at the meeting.
