Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda T. Aguilar committed to rid Zapote-Alabang Road and secondary roads of any obstruction to ensure safety and ease traffic as the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) rated the city with high compliance in road clearing operations.

Mayor Aguilar and Vice Mayor April Aguilar, on Monday again called on members of Task Force (TF) Kaayusan, barangay officials, homeowners’ associations to sustain the gains of the clearing operations.

The mayor cited the improved flow of traffic along Zapote-Alabang Road which is the city’s main thoroughfare, as well as removal of sidewalk vendors and demolition of overlapping structures, including the unfinished excavations by various service utilities.

“These obstructions must be permanently out from our main thoroughfare and the inner roads since the sidewalks are for the pedestrians and the roads to motorists,” Mayor Aguilar said.

But prior to the DILG directive, TF Kaayusan was already convened by Mayor Aguilar in July immediately after her re-election. The task force, composed of the Estate Management and Development Office, City Engineering Office and the local Philippine National Police, being spearheaded by the Mayor’s Office conducted clearing operations to address concerns on traffic and road hazards.

She also ordered the traffic enforcers to strictly implement City Ordinance No. 577-02, which prohibits all forms of traffic violation and obstructions along the roads and sidewalks.

The DILG last Friday posted on its website the evaluation and assessment report on compliance of Metro Manila cities and municipalities to its Circular 121 based on the directive of President Rodrigo Duterte during his State of the Nation Address last July. Las Piñas was among the 12 Metro local government units which got a high performance rating, meaning with 91% to 100% cleared roads and sidewalks.
