TACLOBAN CITY– the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) – Leyte Second District Engineering Office assisted travelers and motorists during the Holy Week observance by putting up three strategic stations.
Two stations were placed along the Palo-Carigara-Ormoc road section located in Lemon Junction, Capoocan, and in the Leyte 2nd district engineering office based here while one was located in Dulag Junction to cover the Daang Maharlika road section.
District Engineer Leo Edward Oppura said that he instructed the project engineers to ensure that proper signage and warning signs were installed within clear and safe sight distance of all ongoing construction projects.
He also instructed the maintenance engineers to thoroughly maintain the national roads and bridges to ensure the safe travel of motorists and to stand by for any untoward incidents that may cause interrupted traffic flow.
DPWH’s “Lakbay Alalay” program was manned by the district offices nationwide, to ensure the safety of motorists and a faster flow of traffic, and is coordinating with other agencies like the Philippine National Police, Land Transportation Office, and the local government units.
