Bike-friendly Kapitolyo

Ortigas Land recently teamed up with the local government of Pasig City to introduce a pedestrian-friendly intersection located along Shaw Boulevard, between Capitol Commons and Barangay Kapitolyo.

The infrastructure introduces features that promote a safe environment for pedestrians and cyclists including improved walkways, a pedestrian safety island, and improved bike features.

Pasig City and Ortigas Land also introduced bike boxes, extensions of bike lanes which are designated priority areas for cyclists at intersections which will allow them to get ahead of traffic, and provide a safe way to make their left turns.

The completion of all upgrades will make this intersection the country’s first LGU-led protected bike lane.

A new traffic signalization system was likewise set up to ensure smooth traffic flow from the Camino Verde Road of Capitol Commons, Shaw Boulevard and West Capitol Drive.

This  allows proper phasing of crossing of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists which would reduce traffic congestion while ensuring everyone’s safety.
