Gomburza face-lifting imperative

/ 12:10 AM January 26, 2017

A major face-lifting job is needed for the Gomburza Monument and its environs in front of or across the National Museum in Manila. Also the pathway along Padre Burgos Street outside and in the periphery of Intramuros Golf Course’s steel fence should be repaired, redeveloped and landscaped.

Vagrants, street urchins, vendors, homeless families, are now occupying the place as dwellers.


Mayor Joseph Estrada and to some extent the Intramuros administration should pool their resources together and beautify this neglected part of Padre Burgos Street, a few blocks or a stone’s throw away from Manila City Hall.

This is an urban renewal project worth undertaking by both agencies of the government.
