Ayala Avenue flyover [Sunday Bridges]

@ mirandablue
This is Monday morning traffic as I was approaching the Ayala Avenue tunnel going to Roxas Boulevard.  Above the tunnel is the Ayala Avenue and EDSA intersection, on top is the drab Ayala flyover.  Also seen is the footbridge crossing EDSA.  Ayala Avenue is one of the busiest thoroughfares in Metro Manila, crossing through the heart of Makati's central business district.  Because of the many businesses located on the avenue, Ayala Avenue is nicknamed the Wall Street of the Philippines.  When the MRT (Metro Rail Transit) was constructed, the flyover was added for left turners to EDSA.

You beat me to it, Luna! I've been wanting to go take this (or similar) shot for some time! Good one... you even got the street vendor.

[No, I don't think I've been to Silangang Nayon... and I'm now going to go look for your post on it.]

Love the curve of the "flyover" and the term. Is the woman on the busy road selling peanuts?

That's a cool shot showing the busy time!

It sure looks like a dangerous place for a vendor!

This is an interesting view of all these bridges!

I like how robert of daily athens put it. Big city challenges indeed.

Ebie said...

Nice curve. Not only busy car traffic but pedestrian too!

I hope the fly over has eased congestion.

An honest shot for the world to see! Siguro dito lang sa Manila may scenes na ganito, signs and symptoms of so many things. You are so quick also to have taken this while in the car.
