Members of Cagayan de Oro City’s Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) backed by police conducted another round of clearing operations around Cogon Market late Wednesday afternoon.
The team dismantled illegal structures along the sidewalks, confiscated products illegally displayed along the streets and other obstructions. The clearing operation was done after the whole force of the RTA made a solidarity walk along the city’s major streets this morning condemning the killing of their colleague last December 30. LINK
Accordingly, vendors are only allowed to ply their trade along the streets starting at 9:00pm. But street vendors usually start peddling their goods early afternoon. Here are some photos (courtesy of Aicy Soriano) of the clearing operation today.
