TARLAC CITY – The road clearing in this capital city has exceeded the expectations of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).
The clearing is in compliance with the order of President Duterte to clear and reclaim all public roads in the country.
“This is Tarlac City Version 2.2, it showed a different face to me. I can finally say we have already claimed the public roads,” said DILG local government capability development division chief Ener P. Cambronero.
The team for road clearing and cleaning headed by city administrator Numer P. Lobo started project “Oplan Angel Clean Up Drive” right after the pronouncement of the President regarding road clearing in his fourth State of the Nation Address last July.
During Wednesday’s onsite validation, Cambronero said there is a 100 percent compliance in this city.
“This focuses not only in the cleaning of the city but also in the clearing of illegal vendors and parking on the roads. The city government, with the help of the different departments, is motivated to achieve 100 percent clear roads through amendments and creation of new ordinances regarding public spaces,” Lobo said.
