The affected road sections were not passable to all types of vehicles after sustaining road collapse, road slips, damaged slope protection, eroded shoulder, fallen trees and landslide, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said.

Three sections of the Apayao-Ilocos Norte Road in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) became impassable due to series of road collapse and slips, the agency said. Clearing operations are set to be undertaken in the areas, but repair works could not proceed due to the ongoing operations.

A section of the Cape Bojeador Road in Ilocos Norte was also not passable due to damaged slope protection and eroded shoulder. Barricades were installed while repair is underway.

Fallen trees made sections of Tagaytay Laguna via Calamba Road in Barangay San Jose in Tagaytay City, and Tagaytay Batangas via Tuy Road in Barangay Neogan, also not passable to all types of vehicles. Clearing operations, were however, put on hold in these areas due to presence of live wire.

Two sections on Jct MSR-Old Zigzag Road and Daang Maharlika in Quezon and three more sections of Daang Maharlika in Albay and Camarines Sur were also closed to traffic due to fallen trees and debris. Clearing operations on these areas were underway.

Parts of San Fernando South Road in Barangay Buyo, San Fernando; San Fernando North Road in Barangay Minio in San Fernando; and Capitol- Cadre Road, all in Masbate were also not passable due to fallen trees.

A section of the Calbayog-Catarman Road in Barangay Nabang in Calbayog City, Samar was also closed due to landslide. Motorists were advised to take Daang Maharlika, Catarman – Allen Road as an alternate route.

The agency said that all other road sections in Metro Manila and Regions II, III, IV-B, VI, and VII are passable to all types of vehicles as of Tuesday noon.
