If you think that the daily traffic jam along EDSA is sucking the life out of you, then you might consider the feelings of our fellow commuters living in the East. Marcos Highway, which connects Katipunan Avenue and C5 in Quezon City to Marikina and Rizal, is currently a big hellhole thanks to the seemingly never-ending construction of the extension of LRT Line 2. The roadblocks take up about two to three lanes, resulting in what seems to be a parking lot as soon as rush hour peaks. It doesnât help that there are four malls along this major thoroughfare. So the once 20- to 30-minute commute has turned into a three-hour drive, on a good day.
You can only understand why commuters are more enraged than ever. We list down some of them.
