The opening of the intersection in partnership with Ortigas Land will be on Wednesday, with the local government describing the bike box and bike lanes in the vicinity as the “country’s first LGU-led protected bike lane with integrated intersection treatment that will guide turning bikers.”

It is another project of the Pasig government which has been initiating the development of safe bike lanes along major thoroughfares of the city.
