LT police readies traffic plan for ‘spillover’ of Panagbenga
by Ofelia C. Empian

In preparation for the expected surge of tourists in Baguio City and nearby La  Trinidad with the opening of Panagbenga Flower Festival, the municipality’s police force is ready with its traffic plan.

C/Insp. Benson Macli-ing, La Trinidad Municipal Police Station chief, said he did not expect the volume of traffic that the spillover of tourists from Baguio brings to the town.

“I did not know that the spillover of visitors here is that huge, grabe, that’s why we did not have implementing plan back then,” Macli-ing said, who assumed office in December 2016.

He recalled that traffic last year reached as far as Km. 3 towards Strawberry Farm, which has become a primary tourist site.

He said this time they have prepared deployment and security plans in the various traffic points in the capital town.

He said Benguet State University was tapped to open an area near the school’s last gate, which is adjacent to the Strawberry Farm entrance, to serve as parking area for big vehicles such as buses while the road near the Commission on Audit at Km. 6 will be used for emergency parking.

Macli-ing said the parking area at the pasalubong area of the Strawberry Farm could only accommodate 400 vehicles at a time.

“All vehicles entering Strawberry Farm will then exit to Puguis-Pico Road or towards Buyagan Road,” he said.

Vehicles coming from Baguio will be asked to pass through Tam-awan Road to Longlong Road when going to La Trinidad.

He said they will be coordinating with the Baguio City Police Office for any request for cancellation of coding scheme since the town is not cancelling its coding scheme.

Macli-ing said they will install signboards and road signs and instructions to guide visitors who would like to explore the municipality.

“Rest assured that La Trinidad is ready to cater to all visitors,” he said.
