Motorists passing through the Kauswagan-Bayabas Junction in Cagayan de Oro City had a sigh of relief after project contractors from the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) finally started some repair work on the cracked portion of the junction located right at the center of the intersection.
The damaged portion of the road had claimed several vehicles in the past mostly heavy trucks. This damaged section of the road is just next to the newly-repaired section completed by DPWH just several months ago.
Motorists have been avoiding the damaged road section.
Traffic at the intersection has been heavy during rush hours considering it is a major junction to the Coastal Road to Opol.
As shown, the damaged concrete has been excavated.
We should see repair works in the next few days.
Contractors should not delay the repair work because this is a major intersection.
