Our government spends and allocates a generous budget to ensure the safety of the motorists and pedestrians. They spend a lot to build footbridges to avoid accidents like hit and run.
However, this newly constructed footbridge in Sucat, Paranaque is apparently not safe according to pedestrians.

On a quick chat with Card on Facebook, he shared that lady in the picture above was actually having second thoughts crossing the bridge. Because to be able to reach the other side of the street, you need to either hop or step over the live wire!
Nevertheless, she decided to step over it, as it’s more dangerous to cross the busy streets of Sucat Highway.
Furthermore, he described the footbridge as extremely dangerous for both disabled and abled people.
“Hindi sya pwede sa disabled. Matarik po eh. Kahit walang kapansanan na tao nahihirapan parin maglakad.” (It cannot be used by people with disabilities. Even abled people are having a hard time.)

ATTENTION TO GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND THE PUBLIC AS WELL:
Look how ‘intelligent’ our government projects are. There’s definitely something wrong in these pictures. This newly constructed footbridge can be found in Sucat, Paranaque connecting the west and east service road to Dr. A. Santos Avenue.
Yung mismong cable wire nasa gitnan ng lakaran ng footbridge. Kailangan mo pang lumaktaw para makalakad. Too dangerous! Nawitness ko to mismo kahapon. Yung babae sa picture naghesitate pa sya actually tumawid. Aside sa cable wires, ung floor mismo paakyat ng footbridge hindi suitable. Too elevated and walang steps. Bago palang to pero maraming tao ang dumadaan dito kasi dangerous din sa baba kasi maraming nadaan na buses and SUVs sa Sucat Exit.

Apparently, the same footbridge had been featured by us two months ago. Unfortunately, no action has been done.
Sadly, commuters need to use this regardless as it’s “more safe” than crossing the street or highway.
We are not sure if the power lines are still live or not. Either way, that looks like one scary footbridge to cross. And we wonder, how scarier it is when it rains.
Have you seen this footbridge? Does anyone know if they have plans to fix this?
