The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said on Wednesday that some of the concrete barriers along EDSA will soon be replaced with bollards following a series of accidents.

“In the next few weeks po lalagyan po natin ng bollards na mas manipis po yun,” MMDA general manager Jojo Garcia said during an interview over DZBB.

However, the MMDA official clarified that some of the concrete slabs will be retained in order to prevent commuters from crossing the highway.

“‘yung pong ating mga pong loading and unloading bays 200 meters before and 200 meters after lalagyan pa rin natin ng concrete barriers yan na dikit dikit… para ang tao naman ay hindi makatawid. Kasi ‘pag binigyan mo ng konting puwang yan kahit bawal tumawid dyan may tatawid at tatawin pa rin dyan,” Garcia said.

The announcement was made after the agency recorded three accidents involving the lane separator which were rammed by speeding buses under the EDSA busway program.
