DPWH COMPLETES BANKEROHAN BRIDGE IN DAVAO CITY

Top 

  Business communities as well as residents in Davao City are now enjoying the faster and safer traveling condition as the Department of Public Works and Highways completes the reconstruction of the Bankerohan Bridge in Davao City. Bankerohan Bridge is considered as one of the vital bridges linking the Davao road networks to the nearby Mindanao provinces. It can be recalled that to assure public safety, the 60 year old bridge collapsed last April 2007 due to its dilapidated condition. Even though President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and DPWH Secretary Hermogenes E. Ebdane Jr is expected to inaugurate the bridge project on June 19, 2008, last June 10, 2008 the DPWH has already opened the bridge to traffic so that the transport sector would enjoy the benefits of the completion of the project. Mr. Arnulfo Sagun, a tricycle driver, is thankful because the completion of the bridge project would surely increase his profit as it speeds up traveling time coming in and out of the city town proper. In his report to Secretary Ebdane, DPWH Region XI Director Jerome Dela Rosa said that they were able to complete the project two months ahead of schedule because of the god weather condition and the strict coordination between the DPWH Region XI Office and the contractor. “ Knowing the importance of this project especially in the trade and commerce industry not only in Davao City but also in nearby provinces we had strictly monitored the project implementation to assure that it would be completed as soon as possible” Dela Rosa said. This 206.6 Million bridge replacement project, funded by the DPWH regular infrastructure fund, includes the construction of 170 lineal meter bridge composed of four spans of pre-stressed concrete girders, substructure consists of two abutments and five piers under the contract with CIRIACO Construction Corporation.

Even if the project is going to be implemented in a fast tracked phase we will strictly monitor its implementation and assure that the approved plans and specifications will be followed” said Ebdane. The project involves the construction of 170.8 lineal meter bridge composed of four spans of pre-stressed concrete girder, bored pile foundation, superstructure, slope protection works and Pile Dynamic & Pile Integrity Test and Facilities for the engineer. “ Another good feature of the new bridge is that we will be using bored piles, which is more reliable that concrete piles” Ebdane added. This P207 Million project was funded under the regular DPWH regular infra fund, implemented by the DPWH Bureau of Construction and DPWH Region XI Office under contract with Ciriaco Corporation. Ebdane also explained that the department has recently identified a new harbor that will serve as a depot for the bridge construction materials and the materials are now being hauled from Manila to the construction site in Davao City.
