The Department of Transportation (DOTr) said that its 500-kilometer bike lane network in metropolitan cities in the Philippines has been completed.

Earlier in June, Transportation Assistant Secretary Steve Pastor said the DOTr was targeting to finish the bike lane network “within the month.”

On Wednesday, June 30, Pastor told Rappler that the bike lane network, which includes Metro Manila (313.12 kilometers), Metro Cebu (129.47 kilometers), and Metro Davao (54.74 kilometers), is already completed.

All bike lanes have pavement markings, physical separators, and road signages.

The P1.3-billion ($26.6-million) bike lane network project was funded under the Bayanihan to Recover as One Act, which expires on Wednesday.

The DOTr partnered with the Department of Public Works and Highways and the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority for the project. – Rappler.com
