Proposed Tabuk central terminal validated

by Peter Balocnit

Tabuk, Kalinga (12 June) -- A centralized terminal here will be realized soon following site validation conducted recently by partner developers indicating that the project feasible and viable for commercial business.

A team of experts from the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), Asian Development Bank (ADB), and Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) was in town last week to inspect the 5-hectare lot at Barangay Appas here.

The city government purchased in September last year said lot from the P12.5 million capital outlay of the Office of the Mayor. The budget for the procurement of a lot to house the transport facility was appropriated in the Fiscal Year 2008 General Fund Supplemental Budget No. 01.

Rolando Gonzales of DILG, Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) and Coordinator of the Philippine Basic Urban Services Sector Project (PBUSSP), and a member the validation team said the team's comments and recommendations will be furnished to ADB and DBP, as the financial source of the project. He said the funding will be in the form of a loan of less than 10% interest per annum.

Meyer Adong of DILG-Kalinga provincial office said the project will come in package to include an access road to the site and its surrounding facilities. He said the integrated transport terminal center will serve multi-purposes like bagsakan, transport terminal, or trading post.

Adong informed that the project which was conceived during Camilo Lammawin's first term as mayor will start early next year. "But if the process works fast, it might commence in the last quarter months of this year," he said.

Mayor Lammawin Jr. in the past said the project might not take place within his term but assured his leadership is doing its job to have it built in two to thee years. "I am happy about the new developments. I hope the project starts very soon," he quipped. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
