Synergeia Seeks The Best Education-Focused LGUs As Pandemic Reshapes Learning

Which city / municipality excelled in providing good education to its constituents even amidst the pandemic?

The local government of San Juan is targeting to put up more modified bike lanes and dedicated motorcycle lanes in other areas within the city.

During his inspection on Sunday, Mayor Francis Zamora said the city government is currently studying which roads and streets in San Juan fit to set up more lanes.

“Aaralin pa natin kung anu-anong mga kalye ang pwedeng pang lagyan nito (We are studying which streets could fit the dedicated lanes),” he said.

Zamora said the city transport is also taking into consideration the width of the streets and flow of the traffic in the areas to maintain the safety of cyclists and motorcycle riders while establishing more lanes for them.

The city government has earlier launched the dedicated lanes along Ortigas Avenue in an effort to facilitate the safety of the bikers riding within the roads and streets of San Juan.

Zamora inspected the efficiency of the deployment of police bike patrollers equipped with body cameras in enforcing the health and quarantine protocols within the city.

“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,” he said.

“Cars will not mix with them as they have their own lanes as well,” he added.

Apart from securing the safety of the cyclists and motorcycle riders, Zamora said bike patrollers and other traffic enforcers are tasked to monitor the strict implementation of quarantine protocols including wearing of face masks and shields as well as the city’s anti-spitting ordinance.

The recorded videos and photos through body cameras are useful whenever someone contests against committed violations, he said.

The city government has installed bollards to guide traffic toward lanes dedicated to bikers and motorcycle riders.

More lanes will also be put up in N. Domingo Street and Pinaglaban Shrine, Zamora said.

Zamora, meanwhile, urged residents to also use bicycles as alternative transportation amid the coronavirus pandemic while public transportation is still limited due to the health crisis. (PNA)
