Lagusnilad set to reopen

Students and guests at Manila City Hall may enjoy a cleanear and newly renovated Lagusnilad pedestrian underpass this month.

Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said the underpass will have round-the-clock security personnel, as well as a digital information desk to guide locals and tourists alike to the city’s favorite destinations.

The mayor directed City Engineer Armand Andres to improve the flooring of the underpass by using non-skid tiles, so that no one slips during the rainy season when its floor is expected to get wet.

Ceilings were refurbished, while vertical wall gardens were put in place for a touch of green.

In the past, the Lagusnilad was filled with illegal vendors, making it difficult for pedestrians to cross from one end to another without having to step on merchandise laid out on the floor.

Domagoso ordered them removed, except for the mini-bookstore that sold second-hand items.

He then ordered the removal of the pedestrian sidings, and in its stead a faithful reproduction of the mural by Carlos “Botong” Francisco that greets visitors at the Bulwagang Antonio Villegas has been replicated there. The Bulwagan was where the mayor used to hold his press conferences before the pandemic. The city’s logo will also be displayed there prominently.

Andres said the mayor discussed plans to install in the underpass closed circuit television that will make use of high-tech facial recognition.

The official said the renovation of the said pedestrian underpass, which started last March, did not cost the mayor a single centavo. Instead, funds from the mayor’s supporters were used in the renovation.
