The new traffic light installed at Kauswagan Diversion Road Junction (Foodhaus Crossing) in Kauswagan, Cagayan de Oro City started functioning yesterday.
The intersection which has become a significant choke point in vehicular traffic after the opening of the Kauswaga-Igpit Section of the Coastal Road is a major route among motorists bound for Barangay Bonbon, Bayabas, Puntod, Macabalan, Agora, Opol and of course Laguidingan Airport.
This junction is where large trucks pass en route eastbound or to Cagayan de Oro Port.
Still, some drainage works are still ongoing at one section of the intersection.
Nevertheless, the traffic lights brought some order in the area.
