Another is the Construction of Public Market at Sta. Teresita, Batangas with its appropriation of P5.0M, also under the initiative of Senator Recto. Said public market benefits the traders, farmers and buyers; thus improves the town’s local economy. Further more, providing potable water for the public is one of the major concerns of said District. One of the privileged recipients of waterworks project is Barangay Niugan, Laurel, Batangas with the Construction of P5.0M Waterworks Project that provides clean and continuous water supply to large number of people as installed pipelines now reach majority of the households. Before the realization of said project, there was a need to travel long distance or even ride horses to get water from almost dying springs. Now, the barangay benefits from said project. District Engineer Atienza always says: We should always carry our responsibilities as good public servants in order to attain reforms; thus our hardworks will never be in vain.

DPWH REGION IV-A CY 2005 HIGHLIGHTS OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Top 

  DPWH REGION IV-A CY 2005 HIGHLIGHTS OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Region IV-A serves the five (5) provinces: Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon (CALABARZON) of the Southern Tagalog Region. It supervises the fifteen (15) District/Sub-District Engineering Offices, covering a total of 2,397.000 kms. of national roads. Being one of the prime Regions of the country, it is endowed with vast reserves of natural resources aside from its strategic geographical locations. Meaning, it encompasses the National Capital Region in the East, West and South. We cannot deny the fact that almost 70% of access to NCR passes through the CALABARZON. If NCR is the heart of the country, the CALABARZON is the “main corridor”. And if NCR is the main door, the CALABARZON is the big window open to flashing business opportunities, tourism that is currently catching the eyes of many local and foreign investors and more importantly, industrialization that would boost the country’s economic potentials. For CY 2005, Region IV-A was entrusted with 564 projects for a total allocation of Seven Hundred Thirty Seven Million Four Hundred Eighty Nine Thousand Pesos (P737, 489,000.00) both for Regular Infrastructure and Outside Infrastructure Programs. Out of the total projects: 201-completed, 63-on-going, and 300-not yet started (due to late releases of funds). Despite volumes of projects and other difficulties encountered in their implementation, this Region has a 44.76% total accomplishment for the year. Worth mentioning are the high-impact/major projects being implemented in this Region, which would lead to further progress and development of the CALABARZON. These include:

HONORABLE BUHAIN JOINS RD SEGUIT IN NASUGBU-TERNATE TOURISM ROAD INSPECTION

Top 

  HONORABLE BUHAIN JOINS RD SEGUIT IN NASUGBU-TERNATE TOURISM ROAD INSPECTION Representative Eileen Ermita-Buhain, 1st Congressional District of Batangas together with Director Bonifacio Seguit and other DPWH Region IV-A Officials conducted an ocular inspection of the Ternate-Nasugbu Regional Tourism Road, Monday, December 5, 2005. Said project is one of the priorities of Her Excellency Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo towards the development of the Southern Tagalog Region (CALABARZON). This would pave way to the recognition of the tourist hubs and world-class resorts (Punta Fuego, Terrazi del Fuego, May-May, Tali, Cawayan Cove, Puerto Azul, Kaylaborne, among others), which attract the foreign and domestic tourists. Connecting Cavite and Manila via Coastal Road would surely promote tourism; likewise agricultural products could be easily transported and marketed to nearby towns and provinces. As a result, income of the local and national government would increase; thus would uplift the economic situation of the constituents of the CALABARZON. Worth mentioning is the decongestion of traffic from Aguinaldo Highway going to the island towns in Batangas. Said project has a 34 km. width from Brgy. Wawa, Nasugbu to Brgy. Kaybiang, Ternate. At present, DPWH Region IV-A through the instruction of Honorable Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane, Jr. is doing all its best to fast track the construction of said project. Target date for the total completion of said project (including concrete-pavement of Batangas side) is on CY 2007. Ternate-Nasugbu Regional Tourism Road would contribute to the realization of the CALABARZON Road Network 2010.

LUCBAN SAMPALOC MAUBAN ROAD, QUEZON LANDSLIDES

Top 

  LUCBAN SAMPALOC MAUBAN ROAD, QUEZON LANDSLIDES Three (3) days and nights of heavy rains triggered the occurrence of flashfloods in the Eastern portion of Quezon and Laguna provinces on Friday evening, October 28, 2005. Long saturation to rainwater, which added enough weights to soil strata resulted to series of major landslides at Brgy. Bataan – Bayongan zigzag section along Lucban – Sampaloc – Mauban Road and Brgy. Liwayway section along Tayabas – Mainit – Mauban Road. The phenomenon caused damages to infrastructure facilities, which rendered the road sections unpassable to all types of vehicles. Early hour in the morning of Saturday, October 28, 2005, the DPWH through Quezon 1st District Engineering Office immediately mobilized three (3) payloaders, one (1) grader (from LGUs and District Office) and one (1) maintenance crew (composed of about twenty 0ne (21) workers). On the same hour, the Honorable Secretary Hermogenes E. Ebdane, Jr. instructed Regional Director Bonifacio O. Seguit to directly supervise the operation. RD then assigned District Engineer Alfredo M. Peñamante as team leader for the field operation; and Engr. Levy Katipunan, OIC – Regional Equipment Services as “pointman” in sourcing out heavy dump trucks coming from the District Engineering Office and Area Equipment Services of Laguna and private contractors; thus dispatched with haste to augment the Task Force working in the area. To handle the situation, DPWH Emergency Crews were regrouped into four (4): one (1) for upper Brgy. Bataan; one (1) for Lower Brgy. Bataan to Sampaloc town; and one (1) for the stockpiling and hauling of aggregates materials needed in the operation. Monitoring groups were also assigned: one (1) from the field (District Office) who assessed the extent of damages and monitored the progress of the operation; and one (1) from the Regional Office proper (headed by Assistant Regional Director Armando G. Estrella and Maintenance Chief Engineer Efigenio F. Panganiban) who were responsible for updating DPWH Central Office and Presidential Management Staff on the situation’s progress. Finally, clearing operations along the Tayabas – Mainit Road were completed at 11:30 p.m., October 29, 2005. On the other hand, operations in Lucban – Sampaloc sections were completed at around noon of October 30, 2005 barely twenty-eight (28) hours after the occurrence of landslides. The Honorable Secretary arrived at Lucban, Quezon before noon of October 30. After having been briefed by RD Seguit on the situation and progress of works; had inspected the whole loop together with Congressman Rafael P. Nantes, Mayors of Sampaloc and Mauban, National, Local and Brgy. Officials of the affected Areas. The Secretary instructed the Director to submit the Program of Works on Clearing/Reconstruction of Damaged Infrastructures, which has an estimated cost of P5.0M (P2.0M for Clearing Operation and P3.0M for the Reconstruction of Damaged Bridge, Protection Wall and Drainage). At present, the District Office is still maintaining an emergency crew in the area; thus would ensure that roads are passable at all times. Updates on fund releases to cover the outstanding obligations incurred: P2.0M initial release under process P3.0M needed for Reconstruction of Damaged Infrastructure still being sourced out

P20M LIMAO-PEREZ BRIDGE IN PROGRESS

Top 

  P20M LIMAO-PEREZ BRIDGE IN PROGRESS President Arroyo has funded P20M for the construction of Limao-Perez Bridge connecting Alaminos and Calauan, Laguna. Under the “Tulay ng Pangulo Program”, the 30.00 lineal meters bridge connecting the two (2) barangays will pave way for the opening of a new farm to market road. Through the initiative of Hon. Danton Q. Bueser, 3rd Congressional District of Laguna, District Engineer Danilo E. Dequito of the DPWH Laguna Sub-District Engineering Office, San Pablo City has started its construction on July 18, 2005. The realization of said project would benefit the farmers in speedily transporting their farm produce to and from nearby towns such as Los Banos, Bay, Pila and Sta. Cruz. This would also mean easy access to and from San Pablo City and Manila. An initial amount of P5M for Phase I, which covers the construction of sub-structures at abutment “A” and “B” including the access road has been released in order to meet its target completion date on November 14, 2005. DPWH ACTS ON ROAD DEFECTS IN RIZAL PROVINCE Reiterating his instruction in quality infrastructure, DPWH Secretary Hermogenes E. Ebdane Jr. directed the investigation on the reported road defects on the rehabilitation of San Mateo Rodriguez Road Project. In his report to Secretary Ebdane, DPWH Region IV-A Director Bonifacio Seguit said that in an investigation conducted by Rizal 2nd District Engineer Oscar Dela Cruz, it was observed that after four days from the completion of the project last August 29, 2005, several potholes are already visible along the said road. “ Based on Secretary Ebdane’s order to focus on quality of work in constructing and maintaining road networks and upon receipt of the report that the newly completed road project has defects, I immediately ordered District Engineer Dela Cruz to investigate” Seguit said. Further investigation of Dela Cruz revealed that the mixture of bituminous concrete surface course used in the project has low asphalt cement content. “ Without any expense from the government, we already instructed the contractor to conduct the necessary repair works and to assure the safety of motorists, we already completed palliative asphalt patching,” added Dela Cruz. Dela Cruz also said that due to the on-going pipe laying activities of Manila Water along Nangka to boundary of San Mateo Rizal, permanent repairs on the damaged road section cannot be executed. The contractor assured that they will undertake the necessary reconstruction works in the road project.

For CY 2004, Region IV-A was entrusted with nine hundred eighty-eight (988) infrastructure projects for a total allocation of P1.88B; eight hundred thirty six (836) of them have been completed with an accomplishment of 83.36%, which is beyond its 80% initial target. For CY 2003 Carry – Over projects, 91.06% is the accomplishment for an allocation of P2.023B. While it is worth mentioning that Carry – Over projects for CY 2002 have been 100% completed before the end of this year. Targets set by the Department for CYs 2002, 2003 and 2004 were met respectively. For CY 2004, this Region ranked no. 3 in the over – all accomplishment nationwide. With a clarion call for the establishment of a Strong Republic having been made by Her Excellency Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Region IV-A is proud to present its high – impact projects: the P40M Binakayan Bridge, the P25.5M Ternate – Nasugbu Road (Phase II) and the P7.82M Access Road leading to Batangas Port have been 100 % completed; the P15M Daang – Hari Road Extension is still on-going with 53.15% accomplishment. Meanwhile, the P100M Marikina – Infanta Road, (Phases I, II, III and IV – Quezon side) and P25M (Improvement – Rizal side) have been suspended due to the recent typhoons. Nevertheless, all necessary negotiations are being done to complete said project. But other than building roads, bridges, school buildings and other infrastructure projects, the greatest challenge for this Region was the need to restore the devastated towns in Real, Infanta and General Nakar in Quezon province due to typhoons Unding, Violeta, Winnie and Yoyong. The clearing operation started right after the incident and all roads and bridges have been made passable and free from all obstructions in the span of only twelve (12) days. It was DPWH Region IV-A who first attended to the incident and expected to be the last to leave. Such performance has paved way for this region’s effort to be recognized once more. The rehabilitation / restoration of all destroyed structures would be a continuing activity. This would definitely require so much time, money and effort. But will and determination on the part of Region IV-A officials and employees will certainly be a plus factor. For their actions and assistance do not just represent the Department of Public Works and Highways rather the Philippine government, who is responsible for its people. As the President once said: “a strong republic takes care of its people and takes care of their future” so as Region IV-A responds immediately to the call of duty.
