THE City Transport and Traffic Management Office (CTTMO) in collaboration with the Department of Public Works and Highways-Davao Region (DPWH-Davao Region) is set to install some 500 signages across Davao City in compliance with City Ordinance 0270 series of 2023, also known as the New Speed Limit of Davao City, according to an official.

CTTMO Chief Dionisio Abude, during the ISpeak media forum on October 5, at the City Mayor’s Office, said that preparations are underway for the installation of 486 signages, as all streets in Davao City will change the speed limit.

Daang Maharlika Highway from Panacan-Crossing to Bunawan Proper will have at least 50 signages, while from Bunawan Proper to Lasang Bridge there will be 24 signages. 

The Davao-Bukidnon Road from Lacsob to Marilog-Buda will have 100 signages, and from Lacson to Ulas Crossing, there will be 106 signages.

Meanwhile, 40 signages are allowed from Ulas Crossing to Carabao Monument, and from Carabao Monument down to Binugao to Sta. Cruz Boundary will have 40 signages. 

The C.P. Garcia Highway from Bangkal Diversion to Panacan Crossing northbound will have 46 signages, while from Panacan Crossing to Maa to Corner Matina Pangi Southbound will be allocated with 14 signages, and from Corner Matina Pangi to Bangkal Diversion Southbound, there will be six signages. 

The Libby Road from Crossing Puan to Crossing Bayabas will have 44 signages, and the Davao Cotabato Road from Ulas Crossing to Carabao Monument will have 40 signages.

Abude said that the signage would be erected before the full implementation of the new speed limit.

“I-put up sa nato ang mga signages ug i-install sa natu pinturahan sa natu ang mga kalsada then we will announce kung kanus-a ang petsa o bulan nga fully implemented na ang atoang City Ordinance 0270 (We need to put up signages, install paint on the roads, then we will announce the date or month when City Ordinance 0270 will be fully implemented),” Abude said.  

In addition to installing signages, pavement markings will also be carried out, according to him. 

"This means that the roads will be painted once the speed limit ends in a particular area. These markings will serve as a warning for riders so they are aware when the speed limit changes," he added.

SunStar Davao tried contacting DPWH-Davao Region for updates on the progress of the signages aligned with the new speed limit ordinance. However, DPWH Spokesperson Dean Ortiz said he still needs to inquire with their district office regarding the matter. RGP
