Visayas Safety, Security Measures Set for 'Undas'


Tudela, Cebu - Local government and law enforcement authorities in Cebu yesterday firmed up and finalized preparations for "undas" as the number of travelers and visitors in transport terminals and cemeteries started to swell.

The Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 has already put security preparations in place to ensure that people going to the different cemeteries in Cebu and other parts of Central Visayas will be safe and secured during the observance.

In Cebu, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) 7 has allowed additional 35 Ceres Bus units to ply different routes in the province to ensure that passengers going back to their hometowns will have enough transportation.

"This is just once in a year so we have to be ready and make sure that we have enough candles, flowers, and paints to meet the demand," Borromeo said in Cebuano.

Felicitas Abella, 67, is also looking forward to the observance of All Saints' and All Souls' Day, when her prayer services are most sought after at the Carreta Cemetery.

The Catholic cemetery, located in Can-adieng village, less than a kilometer from downtown, is perched on a plateau several meters above sea level and overlooking Ormoc Bay. It has two parallel access roads.

The public is advised to take note of the traffic plan's rules that will be implemented for the first time, one of which is the one-way policy.

Pedestrians can walk up to the cemetery using the main access road but will have to take the parallel alternate road on their way out.

Vehicles are off limits at the alternate road which will be solely for pedestrian-use. …
