Motorists may now use a single lane in the landslide affected area at Upper Caticlan, Brgy. Rizal, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, Mayor Renato Gustilo said yesterday.
Gustilo, who visited the landslide area and supervised the clearing operation on January 13, said they are fast tracking clearing operations, in tandem with the Department of Public Works and Highways.
Gustilo said that heavy downpours in the past several days triggered landslides in the area, blocking the mountain roads leading in and out of San Carlos City.
More than 20 truckloads of soil and rocks were removed from affected road, as two back hoes and a pay loader were used by the City Engineering Office for clearing operations.
Gustilo said the City Engineering Office and the Department of Public Works and Highways worked tirelessly to clear the road affected by the landslide so motorists can pass with ease.*
