Agencies, firm summoned on unabated bumping of poles
by PIO release

The City Council approved a resolution inviting the representatives of the Department of Public Works and Highways-Baguio City District Engineering Office (DPWH-BCDEO), Benguet Electric Cooperative, City Engineering Office, and Baguio City Police Office Traffic Management Branch to discuss possible measures to mitigate and prevent the frequent accidental or intentional bumping of electric posts, structures, and trees by vehicles along roads in the city.

The resolution authored by Councilor Joel Alangsab stated there is a need for the concerned government agencies, utility companies, and the public to formulate strategies to address the frequent bumping of electric poles by wayward vehicles that often result in power interruptions affecting the conduct of business activities in the city.

It added that the frequent bumping of electric poles also resulted in public inconvenience because of traffic congestions and serious delays in the transport of goods to their intended destinations.

It added that the road widening projects of the DPWH regional and district offices along roads around the city exposes the electric poles and trees to untoward incidents.

Bulk of the damaged electric poles are owned by the Beneco and are usually located beside, within or along walkways and roads in the different barangays of the city.

The resolution added that the susceptibility of the electric poles is shown by the accidents along Bokawkan Road and other thoroughfares leading to and from the city.

Electric poles affected by government projects will be relocated after the inspection by the DPWH and Environment and Natural Resources and inventory of the areas where poles are affected by road widening projects.
