No compromise in RROW clearing
by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

Mayor Benjamin Magalong said there will be no compromises and exceptions in the ongoing clearing of road rights-of-way (RROW) along highways and roads in the city.

The mayor during the management committee meeting on Sept. 23 admitted being besieged with pleas for reconsideration and exemptions from the ongoing clearing operations, some of which from friends and relatives but the chief executive stuck to his position.

“We cannot do otherwise. We just have to do what is fair and what is right for our city and they have to accept that,” the mayor said.

He said that because of the demolitions, which also stemmed from the order of President Rodrigo Duterte, he had become the target of the ire of those who were affected.

“We have to implement it and everyone must follow after all they were all aware that they violated the law and so they cannot do otherwise but obey,” he said.

The city and the Department of Public Works and Highways-Cordillera resumed the dismantling of the rest of the 32 structures issued demolition orders by the DPWH last week along Marcos Highway.

There were 267 structures found to have encroached into public domain in said highway and these will have to be cleared eventually subject to the procedures of the DPWH.

The road clearing will cover 10 meters from the edge of each side of the road instead of six meters plus 1.5 meters for the sidewalk as earlier announced.

The mayor also announced the approval of funds for the widening of Marcos Highway covering the stretch from the Police Sub-station 5 up to Pucay Village and of Naguilian Road from Camp Allen to Cooyeesan building each amounting to P100 million to come from the DPWH.

In the barangays, the RROW clearing will also be implemented based on the order of the President with the Department of the Interior and Local Government guiding the barangay officials on the monitoring of structures that encroached into the roads.
