Manila launches 15th anniversary commemorative manhole cover
The city government of Manila unveiled the 15th anniversary commemorative manhole cover in the city on Nov. 10, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.
Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan, along with Maynilad’s Chief Executive Officer Ramoncito Fernandez and Chief Operating Officer Randy Estrellado, led the inauguration of the new manhole design at the Luneta Park.
The new design has Gat Jose Rizal’s statue, Nilad plant, and the city’s 15th anniversary logo.
The city mayor said she is hoping that the decorative manholes will also be placed in more areas in the city, especially in the eight tourist hubs in the city.
“I hope you would also consider making more decorative manhole covers in many locations around the city and in those areas being served by Maynilad,” Lacuna said.
“Hopefully, you could visit those eight tourist hubs, you could notice na may manholes po doon, sana po magawan po ninyo (there is a manhole there, I hope you can also do it). It is one way of reviving the tourism industry in the City of Manila,” she added.
Present during the unveiling were Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau Officer-in-Charge Zenaida Viaje, Department of Public Services Officer-in-Charge Kayle Nicole Amurao, and consultant Kenneth Amurao.
