CARIGARA, Leyte -- The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in central Leyte is all set for its “Lakbay Alalay” to assist motorists and travelers for the All Saints' and All Souls' days observance.
Skeletal forces will be deployed in three strategic areas along Leyte’s second district starting at 5 p.m. of October 31, up to 12 noon of November 2.
The three strategic areas include the 2nd LED office in Carigara town, the Lemon junction in Capoocan town, and along the Burauen-Julita junction in Dulag town.
“As directed by the central office, the teams to be deployed shall assist roadside concerns of motorists joining the All Saints’ Day rush,” DPWH district engineer Carlos Veloso said Sunday, October 29.
Uniformed teams will provide prompt assistance on normal and emergency situations in strategic locations along major thoroughfares on a round-the-clock shift.
The DPWH added that the teams shall also coordinate with the Land Transportation Office, Philippine National Police, and officials of local government units.
DPWH added it has been in coordination with contractors to guarantee proper scheduling of road works and installation of necessary traffic advisory.
All national highways, particularly those leading to public and private cemeteries, are being cleared of obstructions and potholes to ensure safety of huge volume of motorists expected to flock for the long weekend. (PNA)
