PIA Press Release

23rd yen concreting due for completion in January 2007

By Bong Pedalino

Maasin City (16 October) -- The cementing of arterial road networks in the Pacific and Panaon island of Southern Leyte province under the 23rd Yen Loan Package is nearing completion, according to District Engineer Carlos Veloso of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Southern Leyte Engineering District.

At the “Kapihan sa PIA” program live at DYDM, this city, Friday, October 13, Veloso said the three concreting projects “are expected to be through in January, 2003, as scheduled.”

“We have accomplished much. The Himay-angan (Liloan) to Silago road is 79% accomplished, the Liloan-San Ricardo road (in Panaon island) 78% accomplished ... the Abuyog-Silago portion 82%, where only 12 kilometers of road are left uncemented,” said the District Engineer.

“The slippage was negligible, minus 1, minus 2, the project was on-time,” he added.

The 23rd yen project involved three packages. Package I was from Himay-angan to Silago, a 68.41 kilometer highway stretch costing P 500 Million and undertaken by China Road Construction.

Package II was from Abuyog to Silago, 44.005 kilometers, with a project cost of P 700 Million by CAVDEAL, or Cavity Ideal International Construction Development and Operation.

Package III, from Liloan to San Ricardo, having a distance of 40.62 kilometers, by Ital-Thai Construction and cost P500 million.

Engr. Lino Gonzales, In-Charge of Maintenance Section and guest of the same Kapihan program, disclosed that as to the problem of the saddle road in Pintuyan which was under the Ital-Thai project, no more improvement will be made and so it will just be left as is.

But at the barangay Lepanto road portion which had cracked due to landslides, this will be included by China Road Construction.

Other guests at the Kapihan were Assistant District Engr. Angel Sia and Engr. Allan Eway, in-charge of Planning Section. (PIA-Southern Leyte) [top]
