CALBAYOG CITY – The Department of Public Works and Highways Samar First District Engineering Office initiated the Road Right-of-Way (RROW) Patrol last January 29, 2018.
The creation of the RROW Patrol is a result of District Engineer Alvin Ignacio’s pledge, during a consultative meeting held last month with Congressman Edgar Sarmiento and other stakeholders to maintain the Right-of-Way limit along National Roads.
The RROW Patrol Team, composed of six (6) maintenance personnel including the team leader and driver, goes on field every day from 8:30AM to 5:00PM to check, monitor, take pictures and record new RROW prohibited activities. They cover all National Roads within the District: Calbayog-Allen Road; Calbayog-Catbalogan Road; Calbayog-Catarman Road and Calbayog Diversion Road.
”Our primary goal is to remove all obstructions along our National Roads, which includes the removal of illegally parked vehicles as well as to stop the erection of any future obstructions. We want our roads to be cleared to prevent accidents and provide motorists with safer travel conditions,” said RROW Patrol Team Leader Elejor Villena.
