Sta Elena bridge still unpassable –DPWH Camarines Norte

STA. ELENA, CNorte –Camarines Norte DPWH District Engineer Elmer Redrico confirmed the other day that the downpour of rain could further delay the construction of the bridge at Sitio Kabuluan, that was destroyed last month.

In an interview, he explained that their work is always interrupted every time the river overflows.

He explained further that as of now, commuters are only using the detour bridge which is generally fit for use of light vehicles only.

He, however, cautioned commuters against the use of the bridge when river is swollen. He especially expressed his concern over the use of the bridge by heavy vehicles when the water level is high.

To address this, he stated that the DPWH had assigned some personnel and had posted signboards that would serve as warning or notice on whether the detour bridge is passable or not.

Meanwhile, Redrico appealed for more understanding of the irate commuters. He vowed that his office is doing everything to expedite the construction.

He explained that the only thing impeding the workers from constructing the new bridge is the high water level of the river.

Most of the commuters had called the attention of the DPWH to hurry the restoration of the bridge, because the alternate route, which is the Quirino-Andaya highway is too circuitous and much more expensive.

The bridge was destroyed during the onslaught of typhoon Mario, which devastated parts of the Province of Camarines Norte.
