    Though marked as bicycle routes, the DPWH clarified that the two new bike lanes may be shared with motor vehicles.

    DPWH said that the completed project — which connected to the existing 313-kilometer Metro Manila Bike Lane Network — is “part of the DPWH-DOTr’s strong commitment in promoting active and environmentally sustainable transportation in the country.”
