Erosion control nets sought for Palawan road projects
A Palawan provincial board member called on the provincial government to install fiber roll slope control blankets on all road projects in the province to prevent erosion incidents.
Board Member Cherry Pie Acosta in a resolution on Tuesday called for the installation of said the fiber control blankets “will serve as a device to prevent the erosion of slope soils and sediments, particularly in critical areas.”
It could help prevent erosion from spoiling the water quality in rivers, as well as protect the commuters and locals situated in areas where road projects are being implemented, Acosta said.
An earlier resolution by the Provincial Board passed the same resolution but intended for the national road affected by the six-lane road expansion.
‘Yong isa ay naka-address sa DPWH which is for our national highways, ito naman ay request for our governor intended doon sa mga provincial roads under construction,” Acosta said.
