Bulan mayor to DPWH: Suspend cutting of trees

0

BULAN, SORSOGON: The so-called tree tunnel in Daang Maharlika Highway is almost gone after the Department of Public Works and Highways cut down almost century-old trees to give way to a P727.5-million road widening project spanning the Bicol provinces of Camarines Sur, Albay and Sorsogon. The environment department approved the felling of trees. Bulan Mayor Marnellie Ballesteros-Robles told The Manila Times she asked Interior Secretary Mar Roxas to stop the cutting of trees. “[Roxas] told me to explain it to the people and support the national government program instead,” Robles said.
