Opening of Kennon for Holy Week mulled
by PNA

Task Force Kennon Road is looking at the possibility of opening the historic road to vehicular traffic during the Holy Week to give convenience to travelers visiting the city to observe Lent. 

Currently, Kennon is open only during weekends of April, from 6 p.m. on Fridays until 6 a.m. on Mondays.

“We will still see the situation if we can open the road for the Holy Week,” said Office of the Civil Defense Regional Director and Task Force Kennon Chair Albert Mogol. 

On March 15, the task force opened Kennon to two-way traffic for vehicles weighing five tons and below during weekends.

Such scheme, however, is subject to change, depending on the situation as the road is still under repair.

Mogol said the decision was done to accommodate the request of residents and business owners.

Kennon Road has been closed to vehicular traffic since June 2018. 

Mogol said that while they recognize the concern of the residents and business owners, they need to balance the livelihood and safety of the public, as well as the plight of the contractors doing the repairs. 

The Kennon Road Camp 7 Vendors Association earlier sought the assistance of Camp 7 Punong Barangay Angelina Ramos and city officials for them to intervene in the reopening of the road so that they may be able to recover losses they have been incurring since it was closed.

Mogol said full opening of Kennon Road may hamper the early completion of the road’s rehabilitation.

Department of Public Works and Highways Regional Director Tiburcio Canlas earlier said the contractors doing slope protection might stop their work on days when Kennon Road is open, to prevent possible accidents. 

The task force first opened the road to the public in February to ease traffic congestion along Marcos Highway due to the influx of tourists for the Panagbenga Festival and the alumni homecoming of the Philippine Military Academy.
