PIA Press Release

PGMA visits Legazpi City, 2 Albay towns

Manila (1 October) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo visited Legazpi City and the towns of Polangui and Camalig in Albay to check on the progress of government projects in these areas.

From the Legaspi City Airport, the President motored to Polangui to ground break the rehabilitation of the town's water system in Barangay Napo. The rehabilitation of Polangui Water System costs P140.7 million.

Scope of work includes upgrading of the two existing reservoirs, installation of a 24,148 meter pipeline, power line extension, installation of 5,000 service connections, improvement of the treatment facility and the existing Higiban spring intake, and construction of a pumping station.

Albay Governor Joey Salceda presented to the President one bus load of paramedic volunteers who will help in the ongoing relief and rehabilitation efforts for the victims of typhoon Ondoy in Rizal province.

In Camalig town, the President presented 240 certificates of ownership to Core Shelter residents at the resettlement site in Barangay Tagaytay in celebration of the Core Shelter's 30,000th Milestone.

The 145,185 square meter Tagaytay resettlement site accommodates 840 families relocated from the 16 barangays near the slopes of Mayon Volcano. Each family occupies a house built on an 80 square meter lot. From Camalig, the President proceeded to Barangay Puro for the inauguration of the Puro Seawall Project Phase I and Phase II.

The P47, 498,500.00 Puro Seawall Phase I project was implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH). The project covers the construction of 240 linear meters of seawall and 240 linear meters of road to include a walkway and/or jogging cum bicycle lane, and is envisioned to be the "Roxas Boulevard" of Legazpi City.

The project links the newly opened Victory-Dapdap- Puro-Lamba Road to the Embarcadero, a tourism commercial/ recreational destination and to downtown Legazpi. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
