Villar cited recently reported complaints about the damaged steel on a manhole along Aurora Boulevard in Sta. Cruz, Manila that was addressed a day after it was brought to DPWH’s attention.

The agency also fixed a reported pothole along Novaliches-San Jose Road in Caloocan City near North Caloocan Doctors Hospital and removed an illegally-installed hump across Oroquieta Street in Sta. Cruz, Manila.

Another reported uneven road on the truck lane portion of C-5 has been rectified and will be rehabilitated when sufficient funds are available according to the DPWH Metro Manila 2nd District Engineering Office.

“Although our Regional and District Engineering Offices’ personnel nationwide are continuously inspecting our roads, we appreciate the public’s collaboration in monitoring and keeping the quality and safety of our thoroughfares as we recognize the importance of placing the public at the center of our policies and programs,” Villar said.
