DAGUPAN CITY– To ensure safe travel for motorists during the observance of this year’s “undas,” the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) reactivated anew its motorist assistance desk located in four strategic places in Pangasinan.
Bernardo Caronongan, information officer of DPWH-2nd Pangasinan Engineering Office, said the motorist assistance program will start on October 28 to November 2 to provide assistance and guide motorists, tourists and vacationers traversing along major thoroughfares in the province during the observance of this year’s All Saints’ Day.
He said the DPWH has assigned at least six personnel with one team leader to each of the four motorist assistance desk strategically located along Mangaldan-Manaoag-Binalonan Road, Pangasinan-La Union Road, Pangasinan-Zambales Road and Pangasinan-Tarlac Road.

“The motorist assistance desk are located in Barangay Guibel in San Jacinto town, Barangay Longos in San Fabian town, Barangay Manat in municipality of Binmaley and Socony Section in Bugallon town,” Caronongan said during the “Pantongtongan Tayo” radio program of Philippine Information Agency (PIA)-Pangasinan on Tuesday.
The motorist assistance group will serve on a round-the-clock shift or 24-hours duty and provide assistance to all motorists in normal and emergency situation, he said.
Likewise, Engr. Fernando Bugarin, assistant chief of the DPWH-2nd Pangasinan Engineering Office Maintenance Division, added that their office has instructed two weeks ago all contractors to fast track the completion of road projects along the national roads of the second and fourth congressional districts of Pangasinan before All Saints’ Day observation.
Bugarin also added that all ongoing construction projects that will not be completed before October 31 should be stopped temporarily and proper signages including warning signs within the clear and safe distance of the project must be installed.
He said that the department also ensured that all major routes leading to cemeteries are free from potholes and properly maintained before the ‘All Saints’ Day’ observation to ensure safety of all travellers in the province. (PIA-1, Pangasinan)
