PIA Press Release

Valenzuela mayor thanks PGMA for infra project

Manila (15 February) -- Valenzuela City Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian lauded President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for her singular achievement in infrastructure development, exemplified by the interconnection of North Luzon Expressway (NLEX)-Circumferential Road 5 (C5) with Mindanao Avenue in Quezon City.

The mayor had occasion to talk with the President last Friday, February 12, 2010, during the groundbreaking of the two-hectare Disiplina Village-- a housing project that could accommodate 900 families in Barangay Ugong.

He assisted her in awarding certificates of occupancy to beneficiaries whose houses and shanties on the Tullahan River banks were swept away at the height of typhoon Ondoy in September last year.

He said the opening of the NLEX-C5 interconnection, which entails the construction of an on-off ramp in Barangay Ugong, a part of Valenzuela, would definitely open economic opportunities to his constituents.

The C5-Mindanao Avenue project, he told the President, will cut travel time between Valenzuela City and Metro Manila. It will thus hasten development, resulting in the creation of jobs and livelihood opportunities.

The President also led the holding of the Common Tao Day in the area by distributing wheelchairs, certificates of guarantee for dialysis treatment, and medical kits for the 32 barangays of the city.

Also on hand to welcome the President were the mayor's brother, Rep. Rex Gatchalian, and their father, William Gatchalian; Northern Police District (NPD) Director Sr. Supt. Samuel Pagdilao; and 1,500 city residents. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
