Iligan City Bridge Bombed, Not Yet Passable to Any Vehicle

[This writer takes another digressing, to announce
another bombing incident in the Iligan City, to warn our
motorists -- if they are planning to travel from Pagadian City or Ozamiz City towards Iligan City and Cagayan de Oro City.]


ILIGAN CITY (April 20, 2009) -- Two bombs ripped off the Maria Cristina Steel Bridge at Agus River, in Barangay Maria Cristina, Iligan City, at around 1:15 a.m. today,

making travel from Iligan City towards the municipalities of Lanao del Norte, and Ozamiz City or Pagadian City impossible.

Only ten persons were allowed to cross the bridge on each side then.
Until, a day after, it was declared totally off-
limits for anybody to cross the bridge.

In the meantime, the old auxiliary bridge is being reconstructed to be used by the vehicles.


Motorists, however, may take a rough road detour by way of the National Power Corporation in Brgy. Ditucalan and going out towards the national highway in the municipality of Linamon, Lanao del Norte.

Mayor Lawrence Ll. Cruz of Iligan City estimates the repairs of the bombed bridge will take two months to finish.

UPDATE [27 April 2009, Monday]:
The old bridge, only a few meters away from the bombed Maria Cristina Steel Bridge, has been opened today to motorists for a one-way passage, allowing the flow of commerce and travel more feasible.
