It may be Fire Prevention Month this March, but the Bureau of Fire Protection is also busy with other work in Leyte – such as removing mud from the province’s roads.

The BFP was tapped by the Department of Public Works and Highways to speed up the removal of mud along the province’s national roads.

“Soil accumulation has built up along our national roads especially along the Palo-Carigara-Ormoc Road, where the sugarcane milling plant is situated,” said DPWH Leyte fourth district Engineer Lino Francisco Gonzales (http://www.dpwh.gov.ph/dpwh/news/12893).

Gonzales noted mud had accumulated along the road due to the weather condition and the transport of sugarcane during harvest season.

The DPWH said the BFP’s fire trucks blast water on hardened mud along the road.

Also, Gonzales ordered the application of thermoplastic road markings on the asphalted bridges along the Ormoc-Baybay-Southern Leyte Boundary (OBSL) Road.

“The reflective lane markings will ensure the safe land travel especially at night, hence reduce the occurrence of road accidents in the area,” the DPWH said.
