Two words: It sucks

I agree that better road conditions and properly constructed infrastructure would get people on the move. The thing about small obstacles is that if it is always passed everyday, you have no idea how much time you really waste just to get through it.

Maybe we can gain some profit from our God forsaken roads if we offer it as a lunar mobile unit testing ground. With all the potholes and badly patched bumps, it would be th best testing site ;D

Very TERRIBLE!!!! Imagine even in highways like edsa if you been there, the underpass thats near megamall. Grabe its like the moon crater!! better bring your  offroad gear with you. I'mean its really that terrible...

That's the quality of roads we have... When rainy days come things will just start to "hole up" coz instead of doing it rightly, the people just doin it "pocketly".

Even roads in Makati sucks!!!! Its already a Business District and still roads are intolerable!!!!

 >:( Our government really is full of crap!!!!!!

alam ko dito sa pinas parati namang may nasisirang kalsada eh. lagi ding may ginagawang bago or rine-repair.

i think that these "patched-up" roads are a way for the politicians to have  a regular supply of pocketable resources. not all politicians are like that but i can't help but believe some of them are.

the point is, why built a good long lasting road when u can do the following:

1) make a sub-quality road. reported cost of 500M (as an example) but spend only half of it. therefore, automatically 250M goes directly to ur bank account. many are speculating that with the over-priced macapagal road.

2) surely, when the rainy season starts, the sub-standard road will deteriorate. therefore, the politician will AGAIN request additional funds for the restoration of the roads. let's say they asked for 200M maintainance fee. may kickback nanaman sila doon.

so as u can see, the cycle goes on and on. why "milk" on it once and stop when u can "milk" it regularly as a cash cow? not only that but everytime that happens, believe it or not, ur popularity will soar due to the signs posted all over the construction site: "PROJECT NI blah blah blah...this is where ur taxes go" ang gandang slogan diba? u get rich, u get more votes, what a perfect scenario.  ;D

hehehe...sa amin the worst the better....jk lang.

Anyways, I said its due to too much rainfall because, the road are constructed properly however, we do not have enough drainage that leads to flooding which ultimately destroys the base course or earth underneath the cement.

kasi ganito yan...

- contractors bid for road projects, lowest bidder wins
- after bidding the lowest, kelangan mo pa mag-lagay kung kani-kanino ng magkano just to ensure that the project will go to you
- contractors are forced to use substandard materials or else lose money, blame this on the lagay

Definitely bad! :) Lalo na ngayun kakatapos lang ng ulan, most of aspahlt covered road surfaces nasisira most especially sa mga often used roads such as Edsa. Yung mga tapal tapal na aspahalt nasisira na. Better use ur 4x4s or pickups nalang. Pang weekend driving niyo nalang ang cars ninyo, hindi na talaga pwede. >:(

Hi Guys!

Just passed by EDSA this morning, and grabe, I drove my SUV like a zigzaging snake! Grabe talaga yung mga butas ng EDSA, lalo na sa mga asphalt patches. Kawawa talaga suspension ng cars pag nadaan sa mga lubak!

Anyway, as far as I remember, nung sumakay ako ng airplane, habang nagtataxi siya papunta sa main runway, kumakalampag din yung airplane, tapos yung wings nakita ko na up down movement din. I should also say na pati runway ng NAIA, hindi pinatawad ng lubak.
