Davao City Engineer's Mess

On the notion that our street -- which has never been flooded in twenty years -- needed widening of the ditches, the City Engineers office ordered a backhoe to tear up our sidewalks. Above is the result of their oh-so-brilliant operations.

Meanwhile, the narrow ditches on the adjacent street that DOES get flooded often continue to remain narrow and clogged.

Hooray for bureaucratic thinking.


  1. possibly thats the reason why the adjoining streets get flooded... just sayin, it need not be wrong...

  2. They may have started in that area because of it's proximity to a school and that once school season starts it would be next to impossible to do any work.

    I do hope they get it tidied up before school season opens in June.
