PRESIDENT AMAZE WITH THE ILOILO CONVENTION CENTER DESIGN

Top 

  President Benigno S. Aquino III was impressed by the design of the Iloilo Convention Center, which is currently under construction.

In his visit and inspection with Senate President Franklin M. Drilon and DPWH Secretary Rogelio . Singson last June 27, 2014, President Aquino compared Iloilo Convention Center to the famous opera house in Australia. “Oh parang Sydney Opera House,” he said.

The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts center. It has a modern expressionist design with series of large precast concrete shells.

Iloilo Convention Center is a sail-like design structure, representing the Iloilo Paraw Regatta while the glasses will be etched with drawings of Dinagyang warriors, hence making the convention center one of the symbols of Iloilo.

The convention center, with an allocation of approximately P700.00 Million is also being constructed as Iloilo City pushes for venue hosting of the two ministerial meetings of the 2015 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. Located in a 1.7-hectare lot at the Iloilo Business Park, the Convention Center is designed to accommodate more than 3,700 people with the construction activities expected to be completed before the end of the year 2014.

The project is one of the priority infrastructure projects initiated by Ilonggo Senator and Senate President Franklin M. Drilon, designed to position Iloilo as a prime convention destination in Western Visayas.

According to Senator Drilor, the convention center is a realization of a lifelong dream of the residents of Panay Island – to have their own impressive and sophisticated convention center at par with those of Cebu and Davao.

DPWH, REGION 6 HOSTS REGIONAL DIRECTORS’ MEETING

Top 

  The 6th Regional Office of the Department of Public Works and Highways, under the leadership of Regional Director Edilberto D. Tayao and Assistant Regional Director Lea N. Delfinado, hosted the national meeting of the Regional Directors last May 27, 2014.

During the meeting, Regional Director Edilberto D. Tayao briefed his fellow directors on how he was able to execute the projects including the orderly acquisition of the right of way and the relocation of the informal settlers on time and without cost overruns.

The meeting also focused on the inspection of various high impact infrastructure projects being implemented in Western Visayas, particularly in Iloilo City. No less than DPWH Secretary Rogelio L. Singson brought the Regional Directors from the sixteen (16) DPWH Regional Offices nationwide to have a personal look at the major infrastructure development being undertaken by DPWH in Region 6.

Director Tayao toured the group composed of Secretary Singson, Undersecretaries and Assistant Secretaries, and Regional Directors to major projects being implemented under the initiative of the Ilonggo Senator Franklin M. Drilon. The grouped visited the Iloilo Esplanade, which is the first of its kind here in the Philippines. They also inspected the widening/improvement of Benigno S. Aquino Avenue (commonly known as the Iloilo Diversion Road) and the Iloilo Circumferential Road, which has the length of 14 kilometers with the total project cost of P1.7 Billion. Likewise, the group checked the on-going construction of the Iloilo Convention Center, which costs roughly P1.0 Billion.

These significant projects are part of the preparation for the forthcoming 2015 APEC Summit, in which Iloilo is one of the cities being considered to host some of the ministerial meetings.

P53-M BUNTATALA BRIDGE OPENS TO TRAFFIC

Top 

  The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Iloilo City District Engineering Office (ICDEO), under the leadership of District Engineer Rodney A. Gustilo and Assistant District Engineer Marilou G. Zamora has opened to traffic the remaining two lanes of the Buntatala Bridge in the district of Jaro last May 30, 2014.

The inauguration was graced by Iloilo City Lone Congressional District Representative Jerry P. Treñas, Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog, Iloilo City Vice Mayor Jose Espinosa III, and barangay captains of Jaro district.

Buntatala Bridge, which measures 25-lineal meters long, was then a two-lane bridge along Iloilo-Capiz Road (New Route) connecting Iloilo City to the provinces of Capiz and Aklan, as well as most towns in northern Iloilo. Hence, in order to complement the widening of Iloilo-Capiz Road from two to four lanes, Buntatala Bridge also underwent widening from two lanes to four lanes.

The construction of Buntatala Bridge with the total allotment of P53.0 Million was implemented in two phases. The first phase (construction of the initial two lanes) was completed in 2012 and has been open since. The second phase (construction of the remaining two lanes) was implemented in the last quarter of 2013 and completed in May 2014, as scheduled.

During the inauguration of the said bridge, Iloilo City Lone Congressional Representative Jerry P. Treñas lauded DPWH, for its coordination with other stakeholders in the implementation of the widening of Buntatala Bridge, which according to him “will help regulate traffic as well as provide ease of access to and from the city.”

This happened because of the cooperation of all leaders here in the city, Treñas said.

Meantime, Engineer Gustilo said that bridges in the barangays of Bito-on and the Buhang , also in Jaro district will be widened this year. Also, Rizal Bridge and San Lorenzo Bridge, both in Lapaz district and funded under FY 2014 DPWH Regular Infra Program, are currently undergoing rehabilitation.

President Aquino Inaugurates New Himoga-an Bridge and Access Road

Top 

  President Benigno S. Aquino III together with Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Rogelio L. Singson led the inauguration of the New Himoga-an Bridge and Access Road in Sagay City, Negros Occidental last May 15, 2014.

Joining the occasion are Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Manuel “Mar” A. Roxas II, Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Carlos Jericho L. Petilla, Governor Alfredo G. Marañon of the Province of Negros Occidental, Congressman Leo Rafael M. Cueva of Negros Occidental Second Congressional District; Mayor Alfredo D. Marañon III of Sagay City, Negros Occidental, and Mayor Patrick G. Escalante of Cadiz City, Negros Occidental.

Also present during the inauguration were DPWH 6 officials led by Regional Director Edilberto D. Tayao and Assistant Regional Director Lea N. Delfinado, who strictly monitors implementation and supervision of the project as well as during the preparation for the inauguration including District Engineer Jaime SJ Javellana with Assistant District Engineer Normita Noble and employees of DPWH, Negros Occidental First District Engineering Office.

The New Himoga-an Bridge and Access Road completed at a cost of P313.00 Million was implemented by DPWH Regional Office 6 in three phases.

Phase 1 involves construction of substructure of 3 spans of 35 meters pre-stressed concrete girder bridge on bored pile foundation including 12 units pre-stressed girders, carriageway and protection works.

Phase 2 involves completion of superstructure of 3 spans bridge with a total length of 105 meters including construction of 1 unit box culvert, cross drain pipes, slope protection and construction of 3.417 kilometers, 4-lane access road and concreting of 1.312 kilometers 2-lane road.

Phase 3 involves completion of concreting of 2-lane road including construction of 4 units box culverts, cross drain pipes and streetlights; improvement of crossings, provision of safety devices such as signage and thermoplastic painting; and construction of slope protection and concrete railings.

Considered as one of the significant and high impact projects in the province of Negros Occidental, the new road provides linkage between Cadiz City and Sagay City without passing through the already congested and narrow section of the Bacolod North Road, thus saving travel time of about 10 to 20 minutes.

Also, the cost of hauling of farm products especially sugarcane from farm to mill is reduced. The new road also provides a safer transportation from the north of Negros going to Bacolod City and New Bacolod-Silay Airport, vice versa, since it has a wider carriageway, no dangerous curves and a permanent bridge.

The project aims to provide fast and reliable transport system between the urban center and the rural areas that would consequently spread agriculture and fishery development. The improvement of the mobility will also give boost to the promotion of tourism, increase economic activities and upgrade the standard of living of residence along the project area.
