To those planning on spending their Lenten week out of town, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has something good for you. The firm is now on full swing with their Lakbay Alalay assistance program to aid motorists on their journeys.
This public service has started last March 21, 2016 and will run until March 28, 2016 and is active on areas where motorist volume is at its peak. These include national roads such as South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), as well as EDSA and other frequently-travelled roads.
The Lakbay Alalay program consists of DPWH personnel and professional mechanics. At their disposal are tools, equipment, and vehicles to give as much help as possible to travellers who might encounter emergencies along the way.
In addition, DPWH has conducted thorough inspections on major areas to ensure the protection of motorists and pedestrians alike. They’ve patched up unsightly potholes, repainted road signs and pavement markings, relocated street vendors, and removed illegally-parked vehicles to keep infrastructures as clean, wide, and safe as possible.
Have a great journey this Holy Week. Drive safely all the time.
