Dagupan sets greening of highways

By Danny O Sagun

DAGUPAN CITY (28 September) -- Greeneries along the major roadlines will make Dagupan City look livelier and more pleasant.

This was the concept being mulled to change the image of the city, according to engineer Augusto Ventenilla of the city engineer's office. He said that greening the major highways within the city limits is part of the city's plan to make Dagupan more attractive to visitors and tourists.

"Say pakanengneng dad Dagupan kaloob da et makapkapuy," (Visitors have a bad impression of Dagupan) he told the Pantongtongan Tayo radio program of the Philippine Information Agency over Radyo ng Bayan-DZMQ last week.

He said that greeneries from the boundary areas to the downtown proper will leave a good impression of the city on the part of tourists or visitors.

Sidewalks in the downtown area will also be cleared and improved noting that pedestrians can hardly pass thru some areas because of encroaches by private establishments, he said.

Surveys and plans are now being done by the city engineering office in consultation with the district engineer's office of the Department of Public Works and Highways, he said. (DOS/PIA-Pangasinan) [top]
