Public urged to report damaged roads-A A +A
Friday, August 10, 2012
MALACANANG asked the public on Friday to coordinate with concerned government agencies regarding the roads damaged by the recent onslaught of the southwest monsoon.
In the duration and aftermath of the heavy rains and floods, damage to road infrastructure was among the concerns of both the government and the public.
In response, the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO) has partnered with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to engage the public, via social networking sites, in a campaign to report damage sustained by national roads during the Southwest monsoon.
"This enforces the vital role of the citizenry in road rehabilitation efforts and affirms the President's declaration, "Kayo ang gumawa nito," said presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda.
"We enjoin the public to submit, via Twitter, information regarding national roads damaged by the southwest monsoon. Citizens must tag the official Twitter account of the PCDSPO [@PCDSPO], and use the unified hashtag, #lubak2normal," he added.
He noted that information submitted will be entered into a database handled by the DPWH, for immediate action. (Jill Beltran/Sunnex)
