CARIGARA, Leyte—Three teams from the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)-Leyte Second District Engineering Office will be deployed for the “Lakbay Alalay” in anticipation of the enormous volume of traffic during the Holy Week.
District Engineer Gerald Pacanan said that the teams will be stationed in three strategic locations which include the Leyte second district office in Carigara, Lemon junction in Capoocan, and along Burauen-Julita junction in Dulag on a round-the-clock shift starting 12:00 noon of April 17 to 12:00 noon of April 22.
“These teams would deliver prompt and reliable assistance to the motorists and pedestrians along the major thoroughfares, especially for emergency situations,” he added.
The district engineering office would adhere with measures such as providing proper signage for warnings, directions and information, reflectorized pavement markings for night- driving motorists, and making sure that road sections are well-maintained and free from obstructions.
The district office will make proper coordination with the Land Transportation Office, Philippine National Police, Local Government Units, and other concerned government entities for any assistance that may be needed.
Holy week is a traditionally solemn occasion in the country when Filipinos remember Christ’s passion, death and resurrection. It starts from Palm Sunday to Black Saturday, then Easter Sunday.
