Landslide-hit road
damage P6.47M

A partial estimate of the damage to the highway hit by landslides in Salvador Benedicto town, Negros Occidental, is P6.47 million, First Engineering District head Jaime Javellana said yesterday.

The damage to three more sections of the highway is still being estimated, he added.

The P6.47 million covers the damage to the road slope protection, embankment and RC pipe culverts at the Balatikan Creek in Brgy. Kumaliskis and Tuy-anan Creek in Brgy. Bunga, the Codiawan Bridge approach at Brgy. Kumaliskis, and Km.55 in So.Tuy-anan, he added.

Javellana also said that early warning devices have been put up to prevent accidents in the damaged areas.

He said bigger drainage systems are being eyed for the road system in Salvador Benedicto to prevent damage like that caused by the heavy downpour last week.*CPG
