Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar guaranteed the public that the Kennon Road in Baguio City would not be permanently shut as the agency was planning a long-term solution to address the concerns pestering the landslide-prone road.
“My objective at this point is to fund a long term plan for the safety using the new technologies,” Villar said.
“That’s something we’re working on this year, especially given the susceptibility to natural calamities. That will be the focus this year. Tinatapos lang namin yung master plan,” he added.
Currently, the DPWH is repairing the damage the Kennon Road sustained from previous typhoons. DPWH engineers are targeting to finish their work by February, the Panagbenga month.
