Weekday EDSA

I chanced upon an uncongested EDSA one day during noontime along the northbound direction. I was traveling from the airport and saw that my usual route along C5 was very congested. I decided to take EDSA instead considering it was noontime and there would probably be less vehicles along the highway during that time of day. I was right and the following photos speak for themselves in as far as describing traffic between 12:00 NN and 1:00 PM.

Section past Orense Street and the MMDA headquarters

Section approaching Guadalupe

Guadalupe Bridge, crossing the Pasig River, the MRT 3 runs along the steel bridge above

Approaching A. Bonifacio/Renaissance, in the background is the G.A. Tower, the Boni MRT Station and condos under construction including SMDC’s Jazz

Section across the Renaissance Tower where many FM radio stations are based

Section past Robinsons Cybergate Mall

Section across the SM Megamall and approaching the ADB

Section across the ADB and approaching Ortigas Ave. One of Galleria’s buildings is seen behind the giant billboards. The MRT

Section descending the Ortigas Flyover and across from Corinthian Gardens

Section across Camp Aguinaldo (between the Aguinaldo and Crame) and approaching the Camp’s EDSA gate

Section approaching Boni Serrano Avenue

Section approaching the EDSA underpass crossing P. Tuazon and approaching the Cubao commercial center

Section past the Cubao commercial center and across from several provincial bus terminals lined up along EDSA northbound

Section approaching Kamias – taking the flyover means I won’t be able to turn towards East Avenue so we shifted towards the outer lanes

Now, if only EDSA and the other main arteries of Metro Manila could be like this more frequently…
