After cement company cooperates: San Fernando traffic improves
Lorraine L. Ecarma (The Freeman) - December 23, 2019 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines — Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia said the traffic situation in San Fernando has already improved after Taiheiyo Cement Philippines has complied with the no crossing on peak hours policy.

Last November 22, 2019, Garcia told Capitol reporters that she has met with representatives from Taiheiyo and have requested them to stop their trucks from crossing the highway during peak hours of day or from 7-9 a.m. and 4-7 p.m.

She noted that the crossing of the trucks significantly contribute to the traffic buildup in the already-congested area.

As for Taiheiyo, the governor said they gave positive responses and promised to implement the no crossing scheme after a little time leeway to be able to change schedules and inform clients.

On December 17, 2019, the governor said the traffic situation has started to lighten in the problematic area fronting the cement plant. Garcia said that based on the information relayed to her by San Fernando Mayor Lakambini "Neneth" Reluya, the situation could be attributed to Taiheiyo’s implementation of the no crossing scheme.

Capitol personnel were also sent out in the area to make sure that Taiheiyo was keeping true to their word of zero truck crossing during peak hours.

"Just to countercheck, I did send out people there," Garcia said.

"In fact, our own people confirmed that wa na gyud. Gihunong gyud ang kaning pag-cross," she said.

Garcia added that Taiheiyo also volunteered to change their delivery schedules should the traffic situation drastically worsen over the holiday break.

"We will observe because they themselves already volunteered that… should they see the increase in traffic, they will reschedule other deliveries," she said. (FREEMAN)
