LT dads ask contractor to place portalets in roadwork areas
by Ofelia C. Empian

With traffic stretching for more than a kilometer along the Camp Dangwa-Dengsi national highway where road repairs are being undertaken, the contractor of the roadwork has been urged to provide portable toilets for the convenience of road users.

In a unanimously approved resolution, the Sangguniang Bayan of La Trinidad asked  Jaben General Construction and Engineering Services and the Benguet 1st Engineering District to provide portalets and install traffic signages in the area.

Councilor Roderick Awingan, who authored the measure, said the project, while expected to bring about major improvement in the traffic flow after its construction, currently generates complaints from the public especially motorists.

He said traffic congestion would even cover both sides of the road “where the riding public would painfully wait for 30 minutes at the least, or even hours, at the worst.”

“Such annoyance is clearly a manifestation of a failure of the contracting firm to implement a traffic management plan, or failure of the implementing office to monitor the same,” he stated.

He added the contractor or the district engineering office should also install the appropriate traffic precautionary and information signages regarding the ongoing project.

“Further, it would also be more appeasing if the contracting firm or the implementing office would provide portable toilets along the traffic congested areas for use by the riding public in order to respond to the clamor of the riding public as a way of providing solution to the irritation caused by physiological bladder discharge,” Awingan stated.

The road project pertains to the rehabilitation of the damaged paved national roads including the drainage along the Baguio-Bontoc Road at the Dengsi-Camp Dangwa area amounting to P19,460,237.

To avoid monstrous traffic, motorists, mostly private, use alternative routes such as the Tawang-Ambiong Road or Shilan-Beckel Road when going to and from Baguio City.
