PPA nears completion of Mati wharf

by Mai Gevera & N. Duallo

MATI, Davao Oriental (30 September) -- Mati residents can anticipate a bigger and a more accommodating wharf as the Philippine Ports Authority nears the completion of the wharf’s expansion.

Aida Pajo, Administrator of the Philippine Ports Authority in Davao Oriental disclosed that the expansion project is expected to be finished by March, 2007.

She explained that Luzviminda Engineering, the project contractor, was given 300 days to complete the project after it started in May, 2006.

“The expansion covers 80 meters. And in the next five months, an expanded wharf in the municipality of Mati will transcend in everybody’s sight”, she disclosed.

However, Pajo never denies the fact that PPA now suffers from financial constraints.

“Last year, we earned 4 million pesos, a big drop from the 11 million pesos revenue that we raised in 2004”.

Pajo admitted that the numerous transshipment of minerals and logs before were of great help to the economic activity of the wharf.

“But now, said activities stopped because of some implications. This also implies that there are lesser vessels coming and docking at the wharf”.

She explained that PPA gets revenues from the usage fee as payment for docking in the wharf, and the wharfage, the fee charged for their cargoes.

After the wharf expansion, efforts will now be focused on the rehabilitation of the old wharf.

“And this will really take time”, Pajo said.

The Mati Wharf expansion costs 60 million pesos. (PIA-XI) [top]
