The winding portion of Sayre Highway at Carmen Hill from Upper Puerto down to Iligan-Cagayan-Butuan Road (ICBR) at Puerto Junction in Cagayan de Oro City continues to be a challenge to truck drivers.

Just today, several sacks of agricultural products fell on the road as the truck negotiated the ascending winding Sayre Highway as shown in the photo below.

This is not the first time that has happened in the area. There were several instances that similar accidents or incidents that have occurred in the past. Traffic authorities always advise motorists and truck drivers in particular to reduce speed in the area. Also, open trucks such as the one above should also ensure that the cargo are properly secured so it won’t fall over especially in winding roads.

Trucks continue to use Sayre Highway as the Puerto Climbing Lanes Project remains unfinished. Read link below.
