Pasig River Art to start by 2019

Pasig River Art to start by 2019

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) on Friday announced the start of Phase 2 of the Pasig River Art for Urban Change (PRAUC) project in the first quarter of 2019.

In PRAUC’s Phase 2, art works will be painted on the revetment walls spanning Pasig River.

Danilo Lim, MMDA chairman, said the Phase 2 intends to entice people to ride ferries.

MMDA said the success of Phase 1 inspired agency officials to lobby for the approval of Phase 2 under the Pasig River Ferry Convergence Program (PRFCP) which President Duterte has identified as a priority project.

It can be recalled that halfway through 2017, murals were painted on nine pumping stations along Pasig River to reiterate the salience of the structures in the flood mitigation efforts in the metropolis.

International and local artists were commissioned to bring life to these structures through their original artwork under MMDA’s partnership with British Council and other private firms.

In response, the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) called on various agencies to
take part and brainstorm to support a viable, affordable and efficient ferry system for commuter transport and disaster response through the PRFCP.

On November 22, members of the Metro Manila Council (MMC), especially the cities of Mandaluyong, Manila, Pasig, and Taguig through which the Pasig River traverses, were told about the program.

Other MMDA projects under the PRFCP were Bikeway Development and Easement Recovery. Both are scheduled for implementation in 2019, too.
