The Cebu City government has opened hotlines for residents to call and report broken roads.
This was revealed by Mayor Edgardo Labella in a press conference on December 22.
Labella said the public can use the hotlines which will redirect the caller to the Department of Engineering and Public Works for quick action on their complaints.
The Asphalt Surge project allows people to start asking for help for their broken roads.
The city government will be fixing roads within the engineering jurisdiction of the city including secondary and barangay roads. National roads will be reported to the Department of Public Works and Highways for fixing.
The mayor said the project hopes to fast-track road repair via easier reporting from the public compared to the usual filing of complaints about dilapidated roads through writing, which can be buried under other complaints.
The mayor hopes for the public’s cooperation so all roads in the city can already be passable.
