Kulelat sa Metro! Cayetano’s Taguig City is worst performer in DILG’s road clearing program


Taguig City, the bailiwick of Speaker Alan Petrer Cayetano, was dead last among the 17 cities in Metro Manila based on their compliance with the Department of Interior and Local Government’s (DILG) road clearance campaign.

According to the data collected by the DILG Validation Teams, 13 of the Metro Manila LGUs have a High Compliance rating, three LGUs have Medium Compliance rating, while one LGU has registered a Low Compliance rate.

Garnering a high compliance rating are the cities of Manila, Caloocan, Las Piñas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Navotas, Parañaque, Pasay, Valenzuela, Pateros, and San Juan.

On the other hand, the cities of Muntinlupa, Pasig and Quezon City got a Medium Compliance rating, while Taguig City received a Low Compliance rating.

“Taguig is still compliant and it passed our rating system but we will (make recommendations) on areas that need focus and strategies,” he said.

Despite many issues confronted, all of them were quick to enact or revise ordinances and conduct an inventory of roads to be cleared, among other indicators, DILG Secretary Eduardo Año said.

Año said the Metro Manila LGUs cleared a total of 612 roads that were now passable and can be used by the public.
