More bicycle and motorcycle lanes will be put up in the City of San Juan. This came after San Juan Mayor, Francis Zamora, recently inspected the new bicycle lanes along Ortigas Avenue and inside Greenhills Shopping Center.
The city is currently determining which streets can accommodate these dedicated lanes, taking into consideration the width of the streets and the flow of traffic. This is to ensure they can maintain the flow of traffic while ensuring the safety of cyclists.
“Went around San Juan today with our police bike patrollers to monitor the implementation of our modified bike lanes in Ortigas Avenue which has dedicated lanes for bikes, scooters, and motorbikes. Cars will not mix with them as they have their own lanes as well,” said Zamora last Sunday.
Besides lanes along Ortigas Avenue and Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan will be putting up new dedicated lanes along N. Domingo Street, and Pinaglabanan Shrine. The dedicated lanes will have bollards to protect cyclists and motorcycle riders.
In addition, San Juan will deploy police bike patrollers in order to monitor the implementation of the new dedicated lanes as well as quarantine protocols.
