MARIKINA CITY – The Marikina City government is continuing road repair works in Provident Village as part of its efforts to improve the lives of the people.
In a statement on Friday, the local government said city hall personnel are currently repairing curbs and gutters along St. Mary Ave. in the village.
In the beginning of this year, 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 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.
Aside from that, city hall workers also planted acacia trees along Bayan Access Road as these trees serve as a balance between urbanization and environment.
In his previous speeches, Teodoro has repeatedly emphasized the importance of planting trees around the city as it provides shelter to people when walking on the road.
