The Department of Transportation (DOTr) is speeding up the right-of-way (ROW) acquisition for the development of the EDSA Greenways Project.

The EDSA Greenways Project is an initiative under the Build Better More infrastructure program of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. that will involve constructon of elevated walkways on EDSA, including footbridges in Balintawak, Cubao, Guadalupe and Taft Ave.

The DOTr said in a statement it acquired 3,064 square meters or 54.16 percent of 5,657 square meters of property needed for the project.


It also approved resettlement action plans for stations covering the EDSA Greenways Project as part of the transport agency’s social mechanism for transport projects,

About 148 individuals who would be affected by the project were enrolled under the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) livelihood assistance program.

The DOTr earlier signed an agreement with Smart Communications Inc. to relocate the telco’s utilities and cables affected by the construction of elevated walkways on the main thoroughfare, including footbridges in Balintawak, Cubao, Guadalupe and Taft.

The pedestrian structures seek to address the needs of the elderly, persons with disabilities (PWDs), women and people travelling with children by connecting MRT and LRT stations to it.
