Cross on green

This is the pedestrian bridge that crosses Katipunan Avenue from Miriam College, which is exclusively for women from grade school to college. Like its neighbor, Ateneo de Manila University, the college keeps a security guard on or near the bridge for the safety of its students. The footbridge is basically of the same design as the one in front of the Ateneo a kilometer away which I posted last month, except that it doesn't have a roof. I don't know if it was done on purpose, but the bridge's green paint happily matches Miriam's school color.

I like the color of this green. And I think the bridge looks better without a roof.

I think Manila could do a bit better with the designs of their crossover bridges (this grees IS better than most!), but I'm sure glad they started to build them! Now if only we could get everyone to cross them, instead of the busy roads below! :-)
