Don't want to rain on the parade, but this is a covering up. They're only targeting the roads that visitors use, which is basically a covering up of the rest of the city. Granted they do not have the funds to do the whole city, and that entails a lot more work, but this is some spin that Bayani is putting there. Sure, he's teaching people to be disciplined but this is in essence a covering up of the rest of the city, whose roads are not getting a facelift.Mango said:He added, "This should serve as a model for the metro. The route is what most visitors take from the airport to hotels, and to Malacañang."
Fernando said the project was more than just another facelift, because it aimed to promote order in the metropolis.
"We also have an information and disciplining effort, because those [living along the route] tend to go back to their old ways of doing laundry and hanging their clothes on the sidewalk, and walking around half-naked," said Fernando.
He added that while previous beautification efforts focused on covering up eyesores along major roads, the Investors' Route program sought to do the opposite.
"The general idea here is not to cover up, but to open the areas for commerce," Fernando said.

Anyway, yes I don't mean to say that it's a bad project because it's good that they're cleaning up those roads and they're investing in community education to keep up their beautification investment. I just wasn't very impressed by Bayani's saying it's not a cover-up. What a spin on things.
