DPWH XI CONVENES WITH CONTRACTORS AND CONSULTANTS FOR INFRA IN SOUTHERN MINDANAO

Top 

  The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Regional Office XI is closely coordinating with its contractors and consultants in the speedy implementation of infrastructure projects in Southern Mindanao in compliance with the directive of Secretary Rogelio L. Singson to fast track the implementation of projects in the country . In a meeting attended by district engineers, construction and consulting firms, DPWH Regional Office XI Director Sinaolan T. Macarambon reiterated Secretary Singson’s call in accelerating the completion of government projects in Davao City, Tagum City, Digos City and the provinces of Compostella Valley, Davao del Sur, and Davao Oriental. Macarambon said that problems encountered at the project sites should be addressed immediately in order to avoid delays in project implementation. This would also prevent inconveniences these projects may cause to the public. “We have forged an agreement with our district engineers, contractors, and consultants of projects being implemented by our office to accelerate construction of projects particularly the P88.159 million Digos-Makar Road; P61.256 million Davao-Cotabato Road, Davao City-Jct. Digos Section; P100 million Kalaw Bridge along Daang Maharlika; and the P549 million Malalag-Malita – Jose Abad Santos Road,” said Macarambon. “Two or more projects undertaken by a lone contractor should be simultaneously implemented. No project should be sacrificed just because these contractors want to prioritize a project over the other. In this way, we are managing the elements of time, cost, and quality” added Macarambon. Meanwhile, major national highways in Region XI are now free from unsightly billboards/streamers, garbage, potholes, stalled vehicles or dilapidated structures since the launching of roadside beautification program introduced by Director Macarambon. These highways nowadays are already well-maintained with clean shoulders and canals. Plants and trees area also well-maintained and trimmed, added Macarambon.
