DPWH CONSIDERS ONE-WAY TRAFFIC AT KENNON ROAD

Top 

  The Department of Public Works and Highways considers implementing one-way traffic flow at Kennon Road, a scenic highway from Rosario, La Union to mountain city of Baguio this Holy Week.

Secretary Rogelio L. Singson instructed DPWH Cordillera Administrative Region (DPWH-CAR) Director Edilberto Carrabacan to conduct traffic study that will only allow light vehicles to use Kennon Road in going up to Baguio City this coming summer season particularly during the Holy Week.

Singson said “implementing one-way traffic at Kennon Road will prevent the re-occurrence of severe vehicular congestion starting from the junction of Kennon Road and Manila North Road in Rosario, La Union experienced last December 2014 as travelers are expected to trek Baguio City for the summer break on Holy Week”.

Aside from possibly solving crawling traffic problem due to some road repairs and maintenance works including the blocked lane by counter flowing vehicles, a one-way traffic flow at the 41-kilometer Kennon Road will lessen the occurrence of vehicular accidents as motorists negotiate the steep and winding climb up to Baguio.

Marcos Highway which is the other access road leading to Baguio City from Manila will remain open to two-way traffic especially as it is also the route travelled by public utility buses and trucks.

With the proposed one-way traffic at Kennon Road not yet implemented, Director Carrabacan warned motorists and the travelling public of the strict implementation of 10- ton limit at Kennon Road to safeguard the weak bridge at Camp 5.

Trucks loaded with vegetables, sand and gravel from La Union to Baguio and vice versa and from Camp 4 going up to Baguio and vice versa are restricted at Kennon Road and instead advised to take the Marcos Highway route.

DPWH will however allow sand and gravel concessionaires from Baguio City that derive their aggregates from Camp 6 to take the route because they are not passing the Camp 5 Bridge.

DPWH-ABRA DEO BAGS BEST RROW ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM ANEW

Top 

  The DPWH Abra District Engineering Office (DEO) maintained in 2014 the top place for the Road-Right-of-Way Enhancement Program of Department of Public Works and Highways-Cordillera Administrative Region.

Director Edilberto P. Carabbacan said that Abra DEO bested nine (9) other DEOs of the region with its entry at the Nagbalitangan section along Abra-Cervantes Road. Apayao 2nd DEO also defended its second rank with the Muslim Section 2 along Claveria-Calanasan Road as entry while Ifugao 2nd DEO took the third place with its entry along Banaue-Hungduan Road.

All entries of the DEOs are commendable since they are creatively made with indigenous materials and each has its own distinct uniqueness but Abra DEO’s entry had an edge over the others having driftwood and stones from the forest as materials. The gazebo is set and built beside a river where fishing can be done on a raft below. Apayao 2nd DEO’s entry is set at a mountain side sprawling beside a water falls and Ifugao 2nd DEO’s entry is strategically linked by a bridge over a flowing river. Barks of ferns were carved as arches and birds and were used as steps leading to the gazebo.

The program, now in its second year of implementation, is in consonance with the thrust of the Department to clear the Road Right-of-Way (RROW) from encroachments, free from illegal settlers and other obstructions. The “pocket gardens” will provide weary travellers a rest area, serving as stop-overs from their long trips, Carabbacan added.

Judging was done by the region’s RROW monitoring team who made quarterly visits to the all the entries, gave ratings and additional points for innovations and improvements for each particular quarter.

It can be recalled that in the CY 2013 RROW Enhancement Program, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places went to Abra DEO, Apayao 2nd DEO and Mt. Province DEO, respectively.
