"There is a need to do a study on how to prevent possible landslides in these areas to avoid incurring damages," Emano said.

On Tuesday, the City Council committee on public works discussed the report and recommendations of the MGB regarding risks of landslide along Macapagal Drive, which is now a national road.

The City Planning and Development Office and the City Engineering Department were tasked to conduct the study and to report this to the committee so that proper measures can be undertaken.
