SORSOGON CITY, Aug 7 (PIA) — The Department of Public Works and Highways-District Engineering Office (DPWH-DEO) has conducted strategies on proper handling and implementation of projects following the policy of transparency and efficiency..
These strategies are likewise in line with the department’s dictum: “Right Project, Right Cost, Right Quality and Right Time.”
A large chunk of this year’s fund was appropriated for road rehabilitation and improvement, and a fraction of which was set aside for the preventive maintenance of the roads said Jake Alamar, district engineer.
“More than P35 million allocated for the preventive maintenance function was released and used for selected secondary of the second congressional and engineering office,” said Alamar.
The upgrading of the national arterial as well as secondary roads, of which some has critical or serious condition, has been hastily implemented.
The DPWH in Sorsogon reported that five preventive maintenance projects are now fully accomplished, namely, preventive maintenance of Gate-Bulan Airport Road with a P4-million funding awarded to Green Zone Construction and Supply; preventive maintenance of Daang Maharlika in Brgy. Bolos, Irosin, Sorsogon for P7 million; preventive maintenance of Daang Maharlika in Brgy. Pange, Matnog, Sorsogon for P6.756 million; preventive maintenance along Juban-Magallanes Road in Juban, Sorsogon with a funding of P10 million; and the preventive maintenance of Junction Gubat-Pto Diaz Road along Cogon and Gubat with a fund allocation of P8.136 million.The four latter projects were all awarded to Hi-Tone Construction and Development Corp.
“With the completion of said preventive maintenance works for these national roads, commuters and the riding public will surely find ease in travelling and transporting their goods and services,” Alamar added.(MAL/BAR/HADeri-DPWH-S2DEO/PIA 5, Sorsogon)
