MARIKINA CITY – The local government said on Tuesday that city hall personnel have cleaned signage mounted on walls and posts around Marikina City in order to ensure safety of residents.
This will help motorists and people walking down the road see the signage easily to avoid accidents caused by old and unreadable reminders indicated on these street signs, as well as help them avoid getting lost.
Earlier this year, the local government said it is continuing road repair works in Provident Village as part of its efforts to improve the lives of the people.
City hall personnel are currently repairing curbs and gutters along St. Mary Ave. in the village.
The city government started undertaking road improvement works from A. Bonifacio Ave. and St. Mary Ave. to Riverside Drive as well as placed line markings to guide motorists.
These streets were last repaired a decade ago. To recall, Provident Village was one of the most affected areas in the city due to Typhoon Ondoy (international name: Ketsana) which struck the country almost 10 years ago.
Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro had said such initiatives are part of the local government’s objective to enhance the delivery of public service to the public. He added these are expected to help prevent accidents and keep pedestrians safe.
This is to assure that the city council will implement effective programs for Marikina City people.
