I wonder why there are a number of roads that are being fixed a few months before elections? I wonder what is there to improve, if in the first place, the road is ok and nothing needs to be fixed on it? Perhaps, the “lawmakers” did not know how to make use of their PDAF (priority development assistance fund) or pork barrel before a new congress emerges?
If that’s the case, shouldn’t they look at other factors that need more focus? Don’t we find that there are more schools that need fixing? More backlogs in education that needs to be addressed? More of unemployed people needing jobs? More assistance in our macro-business in every region? Let me say that the improvement of a society is not made through “re-fixing” our roads. It only happens when each people in society live in prosperity and fulfillment. Besides, the society is not made up of roads, it is made up of people.
“Road fixing” at my hometown in Bulacan that began just last February. Until now it’s on-going. I’d accept it if what they’re doing is a road widening project. But it’s not. They’re just wrecking a well-fixed road then making a new one again. The result? A good long traffic queue…
The same “road construction” at Bagbaguin, Bulacan. With this project, it has caused inconvenience to the riding public. Besides, there is no given explanation to the public why this road should be “fixed” when we don’t see any need to be fixed at all. We hold the right to know!
Courtesy of my friend, Joash Bermejo. This “road construction” at Hipodromo St., Sta. Mesa, Manila has no start and end date for this project. A big no-no! Aside from bothering the normal flow of traffic, we should at least inform our citizens the timeline of this project. A waste of time and money, especially when this project is left unfinished after the elections.
