BRTF, asks for “enough time” in line with sea wall demolition

Written by Bert Dalida

The Boracay Redevelopment Task Force (BRTF) is asking for more time in line with the sea wall demolition in Boracay.

According to Ms. Mabel Bacani of the BRTF Secretariat, they are following a process and or stages to ensure the protection of the island’s beaches as well as the properties of the establishments affected.

The BRTF admits that they were not expecting that the sands they piled up will be washed off back to the sea after burying the debris from demolished sea wall.

The sands also covered up the sea grass requiring them to remove it.

Meanwhile, Bacani said that the pipes and water lines buried in the area are the reason why they dug up a shallow excavation for the debris.

Bacani added that it should be buried back again for foundation, they will however remove what can be removed.

The BRTF has demolished the sea walls in Boracay’s beach front for almost a month now.
