In LT, added tourist sites help ease traffic
by Ofelia C. Empian

The introduction of new tourism sites in La Trinidad has helped ease the flow of traffic during the long weekend brought by the commemoration of the Holy Week according to the town police.

La Trinidad Municipal Police Station Head C/Insp. Benson Macli-ing said in their evaluation that tourists were dispersed in various sites in the municipality and not only concentrated at the Strawberry Fields.

“Tourists are now divided in the various tourism spots of the town unlike before that they go directly to the Strawberry Farm which causes huge traffic,” Macli-ing said.

He cited the sites such as the painted houses at Stobosa in Km. 3; Mount Costa gardens at Puguis, La Trinidad; Mt. Yangbew at Tawang, La Trinidad; and Mt. Kalugong at Cruz, La Trinidad, among other tourist spots that visitors went to.

He said tourists previously went directly to the Strawberry Farms after touring Baguio City, causing heavy traffic starting from Km. 3 to Km. 6 where the farms are located.

But with the introduction of new tourism sites, visitors go directly to these places using the alternative roads in the municipality.  

The Municipal Tourism Office noted a total of 112,000 day visitors who toured the municipality during the Holy Week.

Also, because of the dispersal of tourists, Macli-ing said no heavy traffic was noted during the long weekend and no crimes were reported during the Holy Week.

“There were also only few vehicular accidents. Cases noted involved motorcyclists who had mechanical failure, so we earlier talked to some mechanics to be on-call during the long weekend,” he said.

He said they were able to have full deployment of their personnel along with volunteer groups from the Women’s Brigade and communication groups, and students.

There were 55 police under the field-training program who were assigned at the municipality, which helped in police visibility along major thoroughfares and tourism sites in the town.
