DPWH to sustain inspecting infra facilities

By Rose Palacio

Davao City (7 June) -- Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Acting Secretary Manuel Bonoan has instructed his men to sustain an infrastructure facilities inspection program especially on school buildings, roads and bridges for the safety of the school children.

The instruction was in consonance with the President's agenda to safeguard lives and properties especially during classes and have infrastructure facilities conducive to learning conditions.

Secretary Bonoan also instructed his men to enforce strictly project implementation and be able to complete it as scheduled.

The government will likewise enforce existing rules and regulations in terminating or rescinding civil works contracts if contractors failed to complete the project in accordance with the approved plans, specifications and schedule.

"We could not make the people wait too long especially those who are directly affected in the construction of roads and bridges," Bonoan pointed out.

According to the DPWH Secretary, contractors who have valid reasons for the delays of project implementation, they should exert more efforts to catch up with whatever delays they incurred.

Contractors who suffered delays in project implementation, he said should submit their "catch up program" and entered into a compromise agreement to strictly adhere to the approved catch-up schedules.

Guided by its vision: "DPWH is a model agency in the infrasctructure, development of the country. It is a strong partner in strengthening the national economy and improving the life of every Filipino," the department is improving and streamlining its services and institutionalizes reforms to promote its image through transparency program as mandate by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
