The Boracay Department of Tourism met with Jetty Port Administrator Nieven Maquirang regarding the complaint of passengers about the broken stairs at the Cagban Jetty Port.
According to DOT Boracay Officer-In-Charge, Tim Ticar, he called Maquirang on Saturday, July 27 to talk about the repair of the stairs.
The materials to be used were talked about and one of the suggestions of Ticar was stainless steel to avoid corrosion.
Ticar explained that if iron is used, it will rust easily. While if it is made of concrete, it will shatter when hit by boats that dock.
Nevertheless, according to Ticar, Maquirang already had an idea on what replacement could be used aside from stainless steel.
Meanwhile, Ticar had allegedly heard that there was already an instruction from the Jetty Port Administrator to construct the broken stairs at the Cagban Jetty Port, and construction is about to start.
