"Peter, a law is crafted for the benefit of the people. If a law stands in the way of people's benefit, do we just sit back? The President and DPWH loose credibility with the continued lack of action. However, the bigger loosers (the greatest number) are the citizens who have been severly affected by this. How many citizens does Davao have? If each one puts aside 1 peso (P1.00) per day for 365 days, we would have enough to pay for that bridge from our own pockets, right? So, lets do that and have our own City Engineers office do the job starting today!"
From bong v.:
"If the bridge can't be constructed because it passes through a national road. Then do the following:
* Construct a local road that connects to the national road
* Construct the bridge on the local road."
Again, from guillermo:
"I can not understand this penchant for saying that we can not do anything because it is a "national" road. If you go to Tagum City, you will see work on the "national" road going on and the only sign that heralds this work is one that says: Project of the City of Tagum. If they can do it, why can't we?"
