THE Talisay City Government will implement a 10-day closure of Manipis Road in Barangay Manipis following a landslide that occurred in the area around 9 a.m. Thursday, November 4, 2021.
No vehicles, whether motorized or not, will be allowed to pass the area.
Cyclists were also advised not to use the Manipis Road.
Mayor Gerard Anthony "Samsam" Gullas said in a Facebook post that he immediately met with the barangay officials, City of Talisay Traffic Operations and Development Authority (CT-Toda), Philippine National Police, Department of Public Works and Highways, and the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office to discuss measures following the landslide.
The DPWH is conducting clearing operation in the area.
Facebook user Honey Feh captured the actual landslide along Manipis Road in Camp 5 at 8:44 a.m. Thursday, November 4. A vehicle was almost hit by falling debris.
City officials have been informing the public that Manipis Road is still not passable since last month due to continuous clearing operation in the area.
Gullas also said that they are eyeing to deploy buses to ferry the affected residents, especially those who are working, from the area to Talisay City proper using the Naga-Uling Road.
Personnel will be deployed at the checkpoint in Tangub to inform those who will attempt to pass by Manipis Road about the closure. (With PR)
