If you were to see the above photo in person, how would you react?
This left some residents in Tagbilaran City puzzled on Monday morning after seeing these barriers blocking this pedestrian lane along CPG Avenue.
Apparently, it was just a test or a dry run to lead pedestrians to cross near the traffic light instead of this area.
This was how Tagbilaran City Mayor John Geesnell “Baba” Yap explained this new set-up in a post on his Facebook page on Monday.
Should this new traffic scheme work, Mayor Yap said they would erase the said pedestrian lane.
His post was shared 495 times on Facebook and garnered 3,000 plus reactions.
There were those who commented and lauded Yap for making the right decision in keeping the people safe. Others added that it also reduces the traffic in the said area.
How about you? What are your thoughts about this?
