Maasin City frees streets from spaghetti wires

SLT1264 May 11-17, 2024

MAASIN CITY – The locally termed spaghetti wires on electric poles along some city streets have become eyesores and dangerous. These were highly visible after the devastating Tyhoon Odette in December 2021.   These are now given attention by the local government and private institutions.
These chaotic wires are being fixed and streamlined by the City government of Maasin in coordination with Southern Leyte Electric Cooperative and the telecommunication companies. Work started during the first week of May in R. Garces St., Tuburan, Maasin City.
On May 10, 2024, a traffic rerouting was implemented due to maintenance operations and the clearing of dangling wires, which was anticipated to affect all traffic in Maasin City proper. Vehicles were redirected to Zamora St., while big trucks were advised to turn left onto R. Kangleon St., then proceed to Zamora St., exit to Benigno St., and return to R. Kangleon St. to reach the city proper.
Small or light vehicles were to take P. Gonzales St. to reach the city proper. For individuals with transactions at Pilot, SJC Extension, Shell Gas Station Mambajao, MCA, and other businesses and residential establishments in the area, parking was made available at the corner of SJC Extension.
The rerouting was expected to commence at 8:30 am to facilitate smoother traffic flow, enabling students to reach schools and workers to commute without encountering congestion.

Reliable sources claim that the spaghetti wiring will probably not be finished this year because there are still many areas that need to be repaired. They also mentioned that they will work all day on Friday and half day on Saturday in order to remove the unusable wires. (Dhonna Ybañez and Jas Taberos)
