It was during the celebration of the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, Northview Subdivision’s patron saint, when Director Renato “Rene” V. Vitorio of the Northview Homeowners’ Association, Incorporated (NHAI) inquired with Councilor Ranulfo “Rannie” Z. Ludovica of the 2nd District of Quezon City (QC) whether or not marking the newly asphalted Northview Access Road, Diamond Street and Jade Street was included in the original project design.
It can be recalled that the aforementioned streets were very recently overlaid by asphalt – an infrastructure project sponsored by the QC Engineering Department (QCED) and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) through the Office of Coun. Ludovica. (See links to related article below.)
Two weeks after the very casual talk between Coun. Ludovica and Dir. Vitorio, the surfaces of these specific Northview roads are now marked with center lines that provide separation between traffic moving in opposite directions.
In an interview with the leader of the working team, who happens to be directly reporting to QCED Engineer Joselito B. Cabungcal (a Northview resident), it was found out that thermoplastic screeding of speed humps and intersection markings shall also be accomplished in less than a couple of hours at the time of writing this report.
Also at the time of writing, the staff members of the Committee on Infrastructure, which is chaired by Captain John “Jojo” M. Abad and Kagawad Jhorwin D. Santos, are on their way to Northview to offer whatever assistance they can to the QCED working team.
