Stakeholders on traffic management to convene
by Ofelia C. Empian

The municipality of La Trinidad will soon be convening various stakeholders for a consultation regarding traffic management in the town.

Mayor Romeo Salda said they have earlier convened with agency heads regarding traffic woes in the town. A consultation will soon be scheduled for them to present their interventions to the public and solicit their recommendations.

Salda said they are preparing for the identification of the loading and unloading zones, pedestrian crossings, and the blue lanes for persons with disabilities and senior citizens.

He said they have written Engr. David A. Buliyat, head of the Benguet First Engineering District, asking for assistance in painting the pedestrian lanes and other lanes in the town’s main road.

The move is in accordance with Ordinance 6-2016, which designated pedestrian lanes, blue lanes for PWDs and senior citizens, and U-turn slots along the Halsema Highway from Km. 3 to 6.

Upon assumption of office, Salda issued his first executive order for the removal of the road barricades earlier put up by the previous administration in the town’ main road from Km. 3 to 5.

He said they removed the barricades since the barricades do not conform to the standards set by the National Road Board. He said they are following recommendations given by the Board, such as the thickness and materials to be used.

“The Road Board recommended putting a center isle but we will need to change the materials to be used,” Salda said.

The mayor said the materials of the earlier installed barricades such as ropes and thick concrete barricades posed danger to motorists, that’s why he ordered their removal.

Also, installation of the barricades were supposedly on an experimental period of six months but was subsequently extended.

He said they will consider using the iron grills previously donated by the Benguet Electric Cooperative  if it could be used as center barricade. He said they are studying different materials that will be more appropriate for the center isle according to the Road Board recommendation.

Vice Mayor Joey Marrero said they will consult the affected stakeholders such as truckers, public and private motorists, and businessmen.
