CANDABA — Mayor Jerry Pelayo urged the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to remove vertical clearances installed at the exit and entry points of the Arayat-Apalit setback levee.
It was learned that dump trucks and other huge rescue vehicles were not able to enter a number of towns in the fourth district of Pampanga for rescue operations last month during the calamities.
“Kailangang tanggalin ang mga kongkretong harang sa daan dahil hindi makapasok ang malalaking sasakyan lalo na sa panahon ng kalamidad kung saan kailangan nating iligtas ang ating mga kababayan,” Pelayo said.
The mayor also pointed out that the said levee was constructed not only to protect the province from major flooding but also to serve as an alternate route for vehicles coming as far as Cabiao, Arayat down to Apalit and other towns in the province.
The vertical clearances were constructed to preserve the asphalted portion of the levee by preventing huge vehicles from passing permanently.
However, Pelayo claimed that the placement of vertical clearance negates the levee’s other objective — an alternate route for motorists who want to avoid flooded streets.
“Imagine, tricycle lamang ang dumadaan pero yung project nila nasisira pa. Ang kailangang gawin ay patibayin pa ang pundasyon nito,” he said. (Herbert P. Mapiles)
