Edsa wants biker-friendly city

The use of bicycles as a means of transportation will be pushed by the San Fernando city government in a bid to keep the air clean and make the city biker-friendly.

This was bared by Mayor Edwin D. Santiago during a cycling caravan sponsored by the LGU last June 19. The event was participated by hundreds of bike enthusiasts coming from the city and nearby areas.

“Ang pagbibisikleta ang pinaka-episyenteng paraan ng transportasyon at kung mahihikayat natin ang ating mga kababayan, mababawasan ang mabigat na daloy ng trapiko, at maisasalba ang kalikasan,” said Santiago.

“Inilunsad din natin ang Bicycle Lane sa kahabaan ng MacArthur Highway Dolores. Ito ay maguumpisa mula Traffic Light St. Jude hanggang McDonalds Intersection. Higit isang kilometro ang haba nito at ito ang ikalawang Bicycle Lane sa siyudad, sunod sa kahabaan ng Lazatin Boulevard,” he added.

Mayor Santiago underscored that the city is gearing up to become the most livable place where development is achieved without sacrificing the environment.

The mayor noted that such initiatives are not exactly unheard of; in fact, non-motorized travel has been integrated in the road systems of foreign countries.

He also urged the public to explore more options and choose the best alternatives of transportation, saying that “this program will not only alleviate environmental concerns, but it will also promote a healthier regimen for the Fernandinos.”
