Mayor Rivera to DPWH: Consider installation of weigh bridge at Marcos Hiway
Tuba Mayor Ignacio Rivera wants the Department of Public Works and Highways-Cordillera (DPWH-CAR) to study the feasibility of a weigh bridged along Marcos Highway.
The Benguet politiko said the installation of a weigh bridge will prevent overloaded vehicles from passing through the highway.
Rivera also says this will prevent accidents on the mountain road.
He said local police has also formulated a traffic plan for the rainy season to reduce accidents at Marcos Highway.
“We do not want the repeat of incidents in the past that have resulted to monstrous traffic affecting travelers to the municipality but most especially to Baguio city, thus, we formulated a doable traffic scheme while awaiting more permanent interventions from other government agencies to ensure the smooth flow of traffic,” mayor Rivera stressed.
