CITIZENS’ CALL

Diggings every 6 months in the same areas


Portions of Quirino Highway going to Caloocan City have always been a problem. There are repairs every six months but they always dig up the same areas.—John, Bulacan province

Vendors take over pedestrian overpasses

Kindly take action against vendors who occupy overpasses at 6 p.m. onwards on EDSA, Quezon City, particularly the one in front of Paramount-SM North-Trinoma. Ronald Atadero, Caloocan City

Heavy traffic blamed on parked vehicles

Traffic is always heavy on Leon Guinto Street in Malate, Manila, particularly the area in front of De La Salle University and St. Scholastica, because of parked vehicles.—Chit Facun, Pasay City

    The worsest roads in Manila seems to be in Caloocan.  Tullahan, Reparo, Baesa, etc.

    • chitetskoy

      Agree. Everytime I go to Caloocan it takes me almost an hour to go from Monumento to Sangandaan via Samson Road and vice versa. Is there any way to ease congestion along Samson Road?

      • WeAry_Bat

         With universities to the left and right along the road, along with perhaps 20% of the commuting and working population of inner Manila? 

        It would be a major undertaking to pay off the buildings along the road to turn it into 4-5 lanes on either side.  Besides, we have to admit, Caloocan doesn’t seem to be as impressive as other cities having more of the population and less of the big businesses.

        Perhaps one temporary way is one-way of the side streets for use of private vehicles only.

    Buti nga nire-repair pa, dito sa south, particularly in Muntinlupa City, bago lang mag-eleksyon nire-repair. Ang masaklap pa, yung pinaka-damaged na part ng kalsada ang HINDI nire-repair.

    Is it not that this job is for DPWH..So si Singson dapat ang may responsibility dito. Kailan ba mag kakaroon ng pagbabago sa ating mga patakaran? Start doing something Mr. President dito sa mga tao mo..tulad ni Singson. Isa pa ay dapat may mga painted lines ang mga major roads natin kasi mas safe ito at kapag may vehicle collision mas madaling malaman kung sino ang may kasalanan. Actually any collision photo lang mila sa cell phone is enough evidence sa insurance company. Hindi na kailangan ng police presence as long as walang nasaktan sa isang accident. Pwede na tanggalin ang mga sasakyan involved to keep the traffic moving. Pero sana nga ayusin na ang mga roads sa Metro Manila kasi malaki ang ma save sa car repairs..at ma save sa fuel when roads are well repaired.

    Diggings every 6 months on same road spot.

    Wala namang sira pero they do the digging to release and steal the public funds
