^^ Those squatters talaga o. Di na nga nagbabayad ng buwis, nagdadagdag pa ng perwisyo. Pambihira. Ngayon gagastos na naman ang gobyerno para maipaayos ang tulay. Dyan din sa lugar na yan nakatra ang mga IS na muslim. Panay nakaw ng kuryente at kinakabit sa mga loud speakers nila. 4 na beses sa isang araw kung mag dasal kahit alas 3am ng umaga. Nakakabalahaw. Dyan din sila nag aalaga ng manok panabong kaya tuwing madaling araw ay napaka ingay sa dami nila. Sa ilog pasig din nila tinatapon ang kanilang basura at dumi.

Akala ko ba may plano ang dilg at dpwh na i-relocate na ang mga taong nakatira sa mga tulay? Asan na?

As usual "Ningas Kogon Project", what can you expect more in our Government Agencies lack of continuity in the project as well as project maintenance plan for a span of at least 20-30 years...:bash:

DPWH to check Quezon Bridge integrity after fire


The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) on Thursday mobilized its engineers to assess the condition of the Quezon Bridge in Manila which might have weakened after fire broke under it.

At the same time, the agency issued a traffic advisory‎ that only light vehicles are allowed to pass through the bridge pending the result of the inspection.

Pag nasa labas ka ng luneta hotel, sasalubong sayo ang jejemonized...este.. proudly pinoy manila. :lol:

Kaso pag pasok mo, para kang bumalik sa engrandeng colonial years ng manila. Infact, pag inalis mo si manong guard, hinde mo aakalaain na sa pilipinas (or manila) yang photo.

^I meant, the surroundings of luneta hotel. For example, sana idemolish nila yang god ugly luneta theater, especially yun white building na nasa tabi nito para ma-appreciate natin ang tunay na ganda ng hotel na 'to.



Without the ghastly structure on its left, circa late 30's :


Luneta hotel in itself is an amazing building.

According to Carlos Celdran, it would take at least another year (I doubt) for it to be finished. The actual would most likely be grander than this.

^^ I do wonder what's the height restrictions of the areas beside Kalaw? I hate those tall monstrosities beside Luneta Hotel.
Last time i recall, the height restriction should not be taller than the Agri-fina neo-classicals or more or less, luneta hotel's current height and the maximum height would be the second building on the pre-war photo next to luneta hotel..

Thank the magaling na si ex-mayor lim for removing that height restriction.... :picard:

Personally, they should just demolish Luneta theater and that ugly building sandwiched in between and build a new structure that would aesthetically match the luneta hotel.

How about renovate the Luneta theatre and copy the facade of Luneta Hotel to the exterior?

^^Might as well demolish it since kakailanganin ng massive retrofitting para mag mukha syang french gothic style.

Mas cheaper kung i-rebuild nalang sya into french gothic architecture from the start or pwede ring i-rebuild ang 'University Club Building' para reunion uli sila ni luneta hotel...

Kaso, UCB would be on the left, instead of its original position on the right dahil occupied na yung original spot nya ng isang skyscraper. :picard:
