Acting on numerous complaints by citizens through 8888 – the government’s citizens’ complaint center, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Thursday cleared a vital road in Tondo, Manila of obstructions.
MMDA Chairman Danilo Lim led personnel from the Sidewalk Clearing Operations Group and Task Force Special Operations in clearing Dinalupihan Street in Barangay 206, Zone 19 in Tondo.
Illegally-parked vehicles were towed, while vendors; stalls and other obstructions were removed from the street and sidewalks.
“We received lots of obstruction complaints in this area about road obstructions and we have to act on it to widen the road and provide pedestrians a safe place to walk,” Lim said.
