A total of 3,373 roads in the nation’s capital have already been cleared from illegal obstructions since the start of his administration.
Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso made the announcement on Tuesday, October 8, as he addressed members of the City Development Council to mark his 100th day in office.
From 3,373 roads, about 2,233 were cleared by the Department of Engineering and Public Works (DEPW).
In addition, the Department of Public Services (DPS) and the Manila Traffic And Parking Bureau (MTPB) cleared 817 and 176 roads, respectively.
On the other hand, a total of 147 barangay halls that were obstructing public roads and sidewalks were demolished by the DEPW.
“Bukod pa rito, ang Manila Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office ay linggu-linggo nagpapaligo sa mga dugyot na kalsada sa Divisoria, Quiapo, Sta. Cruz, at Blumentritt, mga footbridge, underpass, plazas, and parks, at iba pa,” Domagoso said in his speech.
“Ganyan din ang ginagawa ng ating mga ospital. Nagsimula na rin ang mga Sangguniang Kabataan at maraming barangay council sa kanilang lungguhang paglilinis sa kani-kanilang mga nasasakupan at kapaligiran,” he added.
Domagoso vowed that clearing operations will continue even after the deadline set by the Department of the Interior and Local Government.
