DOTC chief Mar Roxas inspects Batangas port as Undas pilgrims take RORO
Roxas went on board a roll-on, roll-off (RORO) ship to make sure that it had all the required papers and equipment.
“Sinisiguro natin na kung ano ‘yung nakita natin, ano ‘yung status sa ngayon, na satisfactory, ay mananatili hindi lamang hanggang sa maghapon, pero hanggang bukas and all throughout nitong Operation Ligtas Undas," Roxas said.
Travelers going through the Batangas port commute to and from the islands of Mindoro, Masbate, Romblon, Cebu, and Cagayan de Oro.
According to the report shown in GMA-7’s “24 Oras," around 10, 000 passengers have left Batangas Port by 3 p.m. Friday, and more are expected to come with the onset of the long weekend.
During the inspection, Roxas took note of the small price signage in the ticket booths and also ordered for more portalets in the area. — RAJMD/ELR, GMA News
