MMDA nanindigan sa kontrobersiyal na footbridge sa QC

11/06/2018

NANINDIGAN ang Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) na hindi nito babaguhin ang kontrobersiyal na footbridge sa Quezon City kung wala namang isyu sa kaligtasan ng mga estudyante.

Sinabi ni MMDA Operations Commander Bong Nebrija na hindi agad-agad mababago ang istraktura ng footbridge matapos naman itong aprubahan ng Metro Rail Transit line 3 (MRT-3) bago ito itayo.

“Sa technical working group, if they find na it is unfavorable or there are other issues [during a safety check], ico-consider nila,” sabi ni Nebrija. 

Ito’y sa harap naman ng mga kritisismo dahil sa napakataas na overpass.

“If you’re talking na bababaan namin, we’re not. Sabi ko nga sa inyo, that’s a clearance eh (If you think we are going to lower that, no. That’s the clearance),” dagdag ni Nebrija kaugnay ng 10 metrong taaa na overpass sa Kamuning, Quezon City.

“Kung masyadong mababa, anything on top of the train — kahoy, bakal, kalat, or bato — pag dumaan yung train, hihigupin nya iyan (If it is too low, anything on top of the train — wood, steel, debris or stones — may be picked up by the train),” paliwanag pa ni Nebrija.

“Gusto ba nating mahigop sa train habang tumatawid diyan or what? Magandang tingnan dahil mababa pero unsafe o mataas pero safe? Safety tayo,” depensa pa ni Nebrija. Inquirer.net
