Heading out of town for the Holy Week break?

Should you encounter any trouble along the way, rest assured that you will receive help from Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) motorist assistance teams.

The DPWH, along with its regional and district engineering offices nationwide, will revive ‘Lakbay-Alalay’ beginning April 10-17 to help motorists on the road during the Lenten season.

Uniformed members of motorist assistance teams will be on hand to provide assistance on ‘normal and emergency’ situations in various locations along major highways on a round-the-clock shift.

This initiative is in cooperation with the Land Transportation Office, Philippine National Police, Local Government Units and other government agencies.

Teams will be deployed all over the country before the Holy Week break to make sure that national roads are well-maintained, free from potholes, have reflectorized pavement markings, and have legible kilometer posts and directional signs.

Roads that are under repair will be checked to ensure that it will have the appropriate warning signs to prevent the area from causing accidents.
