BUTUAN CITY, Oct. 29 (PIA) -- Land Transportation and Traffic Management Office (LTTMO) head Alfredo Radaza of this city said the office is enforcing traffic re-routing scheme in time with the city’s commemoration of All Souls’ and All Saints’ Day on November 1 and 2, 2011.

According to Radaza, LTTMO traffic enforce personnel were already given assignments during the two-day commemoration. He added that traffic enforcers will be distributed to all cemeteries in the city.

Radaza added the traffic enforcers are also tasked to coordinate with personnel of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Philippine Army (PA) to ensure smooth traffic.

“Our personnel were also instructed to coordinate with security personnel like the Philippine Army and the Philippine National Police,” he said.

Also, Radaza said signages were already prepared and are now ready for installation in different cemeteries especially in the downtown proper to guide the motoring public where to go.

“These signages will be installed tomorrow – a day before the activity,” he added.

The city’s LTTMO chief further stressed they have enough number of personnel to be deployed in crowded areas like in cemeteries and churches.

With these developments, Radaza asked the public to follow the re-routing scheme that has been implemented by their office for a systematic flow of traffic.

Meanwhile, the official said LTTMO assistance center will be established inside the major cemeteries here to uphold peace and security. (PIA-Caraga)
