GMA bids Ilonggos "goodbye" thru Tigum Bridge inauguration

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (28 June) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's last visit to Iloilo is her expression of saying goodbye to the Ilonggos through the inauguration of Tigum bridge in Cabatuan, Iloilo, according to Cong. Arthur Defensor, Sr.

Defensor said that President Arroyo's term ends June 30 and she is "leaving us with concrete legacies" along with other various infrastructures established in Western Visayas.

He said that the new Tigum bridge was constructed to the tune of P160 million. The new bridge is a replacement of the damaged bridge destroyed by Typhoon Frank last June 2008.

The new Tigum bridge connects central towns of Iloilo to Iloilo City. It also serves as an alternative route going to the provinces of Capiz and Aklan.

The construction of its replacement was started on June 18, 2009. It is composed of six pans using pre-stressed concrete gerders on bored pile foundation including approaches.

Cabatuan is one of the municipalities of Iloilo's Third District under Congressman Arthur Defensor, Sr. (PIA6) [top]
