Isabela DPOS reminds DPWH to closely monitor installation of warning signs at road projects

CITY OF ILAGAN, Isabela — The province’s Department of Public Order and Safety (DPOS) has reminded all the four district offices of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to closely monitor the installation of warning signs at the road project sites for the safety of motorists.

Isabela DPOS head Atty. Constante Foronda made the reminder after he was notified by the local chief executive of Isabela on the accidents that occurred involving motorists plying the national road from Cordon to San Pablo and Cordon to Santa Maria.

Foronda said the DPWH should closely monitor the road reblocking, rehabilitation and other public work activities in the stretch of the national road in Isabela and require the contractor to install warning signs to prevent road accidents.

He said the DPWH should monitor the contractors if they are installing standard warning signs before the road project to warn the motorists and prevent accidents.

The DPOS official said he noticed that many road rehabilitation projects in the Maharlika highway from Cordon to San Pablo and Cordon to Santa Maria where the standard safety and warning signs are not properly placed.

Foronda called on DPWH then to often monitor the road project sites and see for themselves the reality on the road projects. PNA/
