| MANILA, Philippines – Motorists are complaining about traffic jams along Las Piñas City’s major roads, caused by potholes, diggings and incompetent traffic enforcers.Along the Zapote-Alabang Road, traffic crawls at all hours of the day. Motorists complained that diggings of Maynilad Water were compounded by inefficient traffic management. Negotiating a one-kilometer stretch around the SM Las Piñas mall could take half an hour.
Resident Manuel Geslani told The STAR that a 300-meter section of the Daang Hari highway near Alabang is just a “dirt road” pitted with “huge” potholes. Motorists going to and from Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Laguna and Cavite have to pass through this section, creating a bottleneck during peak hours.
City public information officer Jimmy Castillano said the city government’s engineering department and traffic division are working to ease the traffic jams. “We will coordinate with other agencies to address the problem,” he said.
They’ll work on the potholes? Uh oh… heavier traffic! For sure they’ll work on it during the day instead of at dawn when no one is passing through.
please ayusin nyo naman yung canaynay ave. sa may CAA. it’s been years wala talagang nagrerepair nun. sobrang butas butas na. tsk tsk.
Marami din kasi mga vehicles ang dumadaan dito sa road na ito aside sa mga residents ng las pinas yung mga papunta ng cavite, muntinlupa, paranaque, laguna areas… medyo masikip din kasi mga roads tapos inaayos din kasi yung water system (Maynilad)kaya nakakabuild-up ng trapik ngayon.
The 300 meter stretch at daang hari between TS Cruz and Seaside was a problem for many years. DPWH repairs the road by covering the potholes with asphalt but it is not enough due to the narrow road and by their method in repairing the road.
