Achas proposes installation of road studs along highway
AS a rejoinder to the special report of Councilor Edgar S. Cabanlas, Councilor Christian Rustico M. Achas on Monday proposed the installation of road studs or cat’s eye along Sayre Highway in Upper Puerto.
In his special report, Councilor Cabanlas called on the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in coordination with the City Engineer’s Office to install safety devices on the National Highway and the city’s major thoroughfare to avoid vehicular accidents. A cat’s eye or road stud is a retroreflective safety device used in road marking and was the first of a range of raised pavement markers.
During the regular session presided over by City Vice Mayor Jocelyn B. Rodriguez, Councilor Achas said he observed that every week there are vehicular accidents along Sayre Highway because the area is dimly lit, there are no safety devices and traffic signs.
Installing road studs on highways will improve visibility for drivers, reduce the risk of accidents, and guide the drivers by indicating the edges of the road, said Achas.
The special report of Councilor Cabanlas was referred to the committee on public works chaired by Councilor John Michael L. Seno for further discussions.
