CEBU, Philippines — The Cebu City government will conduct regular inspection on the amusement rides at the South Road Properties to ensure the safety of the public.
City Engineer Josefa Ylanan said before the Professional Advertising and Production Specialist Inc. (PAPS) can officially open their rides to the public, proper inspection has to be conducted.
Within the week, city engineers are expected to conduct ocular inspection of the mechanical, electrical, and physical condition of the various rides such as Ferris wheels, carousels and roller coaster among others.
“In terms of safety, everything is crucial,” Ylanan said.
She said if the rides will not pass the inspection, her office will not allow PAPS to open the amusement area to the public.
PAPS is the new operator of the amusement rides at the SRP dubbed as “Big Boom sa Sugbu.”
They won the bidding last September 20 against Three Z Carnival, the previous provider of amusement facilities.
The amusement rides will operate December up to February 2018.
PAPS offered a P3.6-million contract to use, operate, and manage a portion of more or less three hectares of land at SRP providing temporary amusement facility.
Ylanan said they plan to conduct inspections every week so that the condition of the rides will be well monitored.
Last Friday, they were supposed to start the inspection but no one from the PAPS management was present.
SRP management head Nagiel Bañacia said the tentative schedule for the opening of the rides will be on December 8, Friday. (FREEMAN)
