The Department of Public Works and Highways in Region 02 has been busy, and public holidays are no exception. Maintenance workers of District Engineering Offices were working overtime and established Lakbay Alalay operations during the course of the holiday season from December 20, 2019 to January 2, 2019 along critical national highway road sections in Cagayan Valley region.
OIC-Regional Director Loreta M. Malaluan ordered maintenance personnel to conduct routine maintenance activities in their area of responsibility. “This is our gift to the public and our way of making our presence felt, our roles are still the same, Christmas Day and every other day of the year."
The activity was initiated by DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar who instructed Regional and District Engineering Offices to intensify Maintenance works along main highway systems and other sections in the region.
“These activities are significant in safeguarding our roads and at the same time providing efficient, convenient and safe travel for the public.” Director Malaluan added.
This is recognition to the effort and sacrifice of Maintenance Personnel rendering overtime service this Christmas season in order to ensure road safety along national highways. DPWH region 2 is glad to provide this service to the public.
