Para ‘di na madulas: Duterte signs Kennon Road rehab bill

0 372

President Rodrigo Duterte has signed into a law mandating the full rehabilitation and maintenance of Kennon Road, a famous yet accident-prone rout for Baguio City-bound motorists.

Baguio City Representative Mark Go, one of the primary authors of the law, announced the signing of Republic Act Number 11604 in a Facebook post on Saturday, January 15. The goal is to ensure Kennon Road would be safe for all kinds of weather.

“It is becoming impractical and costly to continue doing interim or provisional works in this major road for it to be passable every now and then. R.A. 11604 will mandate the complete rehabilitation of Kennon Road and would immediately end the highway’s ‘open-close’ situation making it passable to locals and tourists 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year,” Go said.
