Palo Bernard Reed Bridge undergoes rehab, only half lane open to public

Tacloban City (February 6) -- Only half lane of the Bernard Reed Bridge in Palo, Leyte has been open to the commuters since Monday February 4, 2008, Director Jaime Pacanan of the Department of Public Works and Highways Region 8 informed.

Director Pacanan said that this is in connection with the urgent on-going rehabilitation work in the bridge that necessitates the limitation of traffic to half lane only.

Director Pacanan added that vehicles passing the said bridge are strictly limited to 10 tons load and 10 kilometers per hour speed.

The Regional Director is appealing to the commuters and traveling public to bear with the inconvenience. He is also calling on the drivers for their utmost cooperation in order to avoid any untoward incidents in the area, to avoid any delay in the rehabilitation and to maintain smooth flow of traffic.

Furthermore, Director Pacanan wish to assure that public that the Agency is doing its best to fasttrack the completion of rehabilitation work so that the bridge will be of normal service the soonest possible time.

The Bernard Reed Bridge is very important because it connects Tacloban to the South and to the West. If this bridge is destroyed, it would be very difficult to rich the South and the Western portion of Leyte from Tacloban. (PIA 8) [top]
