Here’s how Vico Sotto solved the delayed DPWH, Manila Water works in Pasig


They all just had to sit down and talk to finally solve the problem.

Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto has been so bothered as to why water firm Manila Water and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) seem to be taking their time along C. Raymundo, which has been under construction for weeks.

It was only when he confronted both parties did Sotto find out that the six-hour window for construction works given to the two was the culprit.

The politiko swooped in with a cure: Sotto granted a 24-hour work permit, which will allow both entities to finish their jobs by December.

Will this solve a looming carmageddon?
