SINGSON WARNS VS INFLUENCE-PEDDLERS

Top  

 
 

Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary Rogelio L. Singson warned DPWH officials and contractors against those making calls and sending messages to inform that they are well-connected with the incoming new administration.

Name-droppers and influence peddlers are expected to operate especially during the transition period, said Secretary Singson

The DPWH Chief has received directly himself and also reports from the field that impostors are calling Regional Directors requesting the names of DPWH big contractors to broker meeting with Las Piñas Representative Mark Villar, named incoming DPWH Secretary by presumptive President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Be vigilant about calls and messages as somebody has started to use the name of Congressman Mark including Mr. Peter Lavina, presumptive President’s campaign spokesperson”, said Singson.

Secretary Singson said that all contractors doing business with the Department are indicated in the list of infrastructure projects per Region posted in the DPWH website and there is no reason to provide similar information to any unknown persons.

As head of the DPWH Presidential Transition Committee together with the five (5) DPWH Undersecretaries, detailed briefing about the DPWH operation as part of the transition process for the turn-over of leadership to Congressman Villar has been given by Secretary Singson.

MILLENIUM CHALLENGE ROAD LEGACY IN SAMAR

Top  

 
 

The Aquino administration will leave behind an infrastructure legacy for the people of Samar Island.

The province of Western Samar from Barangay Buray in the town of Wright is now connected to Guiuan, Eastern Samar involving a total of 15 municipalities covering 222 kilometers by an all weather concrete paved road with 62 permanent bridges.

Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary Rogelio L. Singson said that the road project known as Secondary National Roads Development Project is a product of the continuing partnership between the United States of America through the Millenium Challenge Corporation and the Philippine Government in the common objective of bringing our people to inclusive economic growth.

Closing event for the project will be held May 19, 2016 in Borongan City, Eastern Samar after 44 challenging months of project implementation notwithstanding the devastating effects of Typhoon “Yolanda” in Eastern Visayas during the period of implementation.

Singson said that the Samareños are witnessed to the realization of their dream road which created jobs, improved flow of goods and services, and better peace and order, as well as access to tourism, healthcare, education and other facilities.

The end of civil works activities for the project will however mark the beginning of the community managed road maintenance program initiatives between DPWH, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Road Board for the San Julian to Guiuan road segment in Eastern Samar.

The community managed road maintenance program is an opportunity for our people to demonstrate their sense of responsibility and participation in nation building, said Singson.

With the concerted efforts of government and the people in the locality, there is no doubt that we can preserve this legacy road project to enjoy the fruits of our cooperation for years to come, added Singson.

DPWH IMPROVES ROAD ACCESS TO THE “BORACAY OF THE NORTH”

Top  

 
 

Tourists visiting Tondol Beach in Anda, Pangasinan will be surprised not only by the fine and long stretch of wide white sand beach but also by the paved roadway leading to the tourism destination.

Department of Public Works and Highways – Pangasinan 1st District Engineer Smile D. Fermin reported the completion of the P43 Million concrete paving of Poblacion-San Jose-Namagbagan-Imbo-Tondol Road leading to Tondol Beach located at the northern tip of Anda, Pangasinan.

DPWH Secretary Rogelio L. Singson said that the road project funded by the Department of Tourism under convergence program will make travel to Tondol White Sand Beach convenient as perfect place of summer escapade for people from Luzon who need not to go far nor spend much to experience white sandy beach.

The pure white sand, crystal water that reflect the skies, calm waves and sand bars of Tondol Beach, often called by the locals as the “Boracay of North”, is an enjoyable place for families to build white sand castle of dreams ala Boracay.

According to Engr. June Miguel Ramolete Sr., Planning Section Head of Pangasinan 1st District Engineering Office, the improvement of the concrete access road involves replacement works for the deteriorated existing concrete pavement and construction of stone masonry slope protection structure along the roadside.

To further increase the tourism potential of Agno, Pangasinan, the DPWH is also undertaking the construction of access road leading to Umbrella Rocks and Abagatanen Beach.

The white sand Abagatanen Beach and colossal boulders known as “Umbrella Rocks” and the clear Sabangan Beach are gems of Agno.

The initial improvement of the Poblacion-Sabangan Road was already completed by the Pangasinan 1st District Engineering Office in the amount of P46.6 Million.
