EDSAya!: An Elevated Bike & Pedestrian Street Redesign

Could this be the answer to our traffic problem?


If you live in Metro Manila, you've most likely experienced the standstill situation along EDSA. You have probably spent hours on the road hoping to reach your destination on time. 

A group of architects from Archion have come up with a possible answer to the traffic problem—a redesign. They believe that with enough research and the right design, nothing can go wrong. 

EDSAya!—the project by Built Environment Banter, is pushing for pedestrianizing EDSA with an urban solution. Based on a study they have conducted, they aim to build an elevated bike and pedestrian street from North EDSA to MOA Complex. 

The proposed 20km walkway will connect MRT stations or malls through bike lanes, walkalators, and “seatalators” for wheelchairs. Apart from that, they want to include rain harvesting systems for recycling water in public pay toilets and a series of gardens to help purify the air. They are also planning to build it using bamboo and generate energy from wind microturbines to keep the project eco-friendly.
