PANABO CITY, Davao – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is set to implement the proposed infrastructure projects in the city worth P459 million on the first quarter of 2017. This is based on the letter sent to the city government from DPWH District Engineer, Noel C. Basañes, dated December 12, 2016.
According to the City Planning and Development Coordinator, Aurora M. Lauron, the proposed projects include a P230 million bypass road in J.P. Laurel. The project will mitigate the traffic in the city’s major thoroughfare since this will serve as an alternative route for big volume vehicles.
A P10M worth of road concreting in Purok 3 Galagala, Barangay San Vicente, will also be implemented in support to the new industrial estate located in the said area. This industrial estate operated by the Anflo Group is duly licensed by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) and proclaimed as a Special Economic Zone by the Office of the President.
Furthermore, Farm-to-Market Roads (FMR) from Barangay Katipunan to Malativas will be constructed worth P150 million. The existing FMR in Barangay Sindaton will be concreted worth P3 million, while Barangay Kiotoy to San Nicolas FMR will be rehabilitated worth P50 million.
Aside from the improvement of road network, construction of water systems in Kasilak and Dalisay will be included worth P8 million each to provide adequate potable water supply in the said barangays.
