I always pass by UP Town Center. Sumisikip ang traffic doon because ginagawang parking ang isang lane ng Katipunan sa labas mismo ng UP Town Center. That's also at around 10:30 pm. Tapos I'll see that the parking lot isn't full naman.

Napansin ko kaninang umaga while watching the morning news program. The CCTV was focused on katipunan ave and i noticed na 4 lanes na lang yung part fronting ateneo while its 5 lanes sa other southbound. I remember before that DPWH requested the ateneo admin to donate parts of ther land for the road expansion kaso di pumayag ang ateneo admin. Yan nga sinasabi ko eh, pag may protesta ang ateneo akala mo sila lang ang laging tama pero eto at kailangan nilang magbigay for the greater good, madamot sila. Hypocrites

true, aside from this, parking at the side of katipunan and cars traversing perpendicular to katipunan going to u-turn slot. and of course those stupid jeepney drivers who think they own katipunan avenue.

Pwede kung gagawan ng paraan. Yung public school sa manila donated lot din. For public school bldg lang pero nabenta ren ng city govt at naging megaworld city place/ lucky chinatown mall. Besides govt can expropriate the property. Ang ateneo students din naman makikinabang.

try passing lasalle greenhills during school days. mas grabe since ginagamit ng parking yung daan ng ortigas at walang magawa ang mmda.

yung UP nga eh sa taong bayan nanggagaling ang subsidy eh di ka man lang makadaan pag trapik going to tandang sora at walang magawa taong bayan o gobyerno , yung private property pa tulad ng ateneo.

Wala talaga tayo maaasAhan na solution from Ateneo. Hopefully w/in the decade matuloy na yung flyover jan na beyond cp Garcia na yung dulo. Panay tutol Ateneo pag may mataas na structure na tinatayo

Hindi naman unwarranted mga reklamo nila but I agree that kung tutol sila sa flyover eh OA na ang dating.

Dito sana mapapakita ang pagiging makabayan kuno ng ateneo at la salle. Kaso mga ipokrito mga yan.

actually no. donation requires that the land be reverted back if binigay or ibebenta ng Ateneo

Actually, the width of Katipunan from the center island up to the fence of Ateneo and Miriam used to be part of their campuses. Katipunan was widened in 1997 to its present state, with the additional width taken from the property of Ateneo and Miriam.

A sustainable, long-term solution is mass transit, not the perpetual widening of roads.

i agree sir, and of course discipline drivers. D pwedeng iaasa na idonate ng ateneo at pag di ginawa ng ateneo ay isisisi sa ateneo kasi po kung lupa natin iyon baka di rin natin basta idodonate. to be fair sa lahat ay responsibility ng government ang roadways. dapat sila ang nag aaral ng mga ito. walang iniba po iyan sa edsa na araw araw ay trapik pero di naman pwede n idonate ng mga establishment ang harapan nila para lumuwag pa edsa. kasi isang driver lang ng bus na walang disiplina ay kaya ng magkakatrapik sa edsa.

agree. a reliable mass transit system is needed. we can't rely too much on driving our own cars. the more cars become affordable, the worse traffic will become. No amount of road widening or fly over construction will solve this. developed countries prioritize their rail lines because they see it's the best way to move people around instead of private vehicles.

kung pwede nga lang from katipunan station gumawa sila ng rail line to UP. so if you go to UP, instead of getting on a jeep from Katipunan, you just get on another line. then at Philcoa, connect that to MRT 7.

just wishful thinking

Nope. Not within the UP lot. Land is on a 25 year lease from UP.
