EDSA - McKin­ley ac­cess road scheme

- By ANNA LIZA VIL­LAS-ALAVAREN

The Metropoli­tan Manila Devel­op­ment Author­ity (MMDA) will open the Edsa-McKin­ley ser­vice road in Makati City to two-way ve­hic­u­lar traf­fic to ad­dress bot­tle­neck of ve­hi­cles in the coun­try’s fi­nan­cial dis­trict.

Be­gin­ning Satur­day, pri­vate ve­hi­cles com­ing from Mckin­ley would be al­lowed to turn right to get to Edsa go­ing north­bound while pri­vate ve­hi­cles on Edsa-north­bound go­ing to BGC will also be al­lowed to use the Mckin­ley ac­cess road.

At present, the Edsa-Mckin­ley Ac­cess Road is only uti­lized by PUJs as load­ing bay.

Both pub­lic util­ity jeep­neys (PUJs) bound for Makati Busi­ness Dis­trict in Ayala and Boni­fa­cio Global City in Taguig City are al­lowed to load in the area and pri­vate ve­hi­cles to use the other lane to by­pass the Edsa-Mckin­ley in­ter­sec­tion.

Un­der the new re-rout­ing plan, MMDA en­forcers will only al­low three PUJs at a time at the load­ing bay on the side of Shell gas sta­tion to pick up pas­sen­gers.

All PUJs will un­load pas­sen­gers at the BGC bus ter­mi­nal where driv­ers will wait for their turn to queue at the load­ing bay.
