PIA Press Release

PGMA visits Iloilo Monday

Iloilo City (28 June) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will spend some of the remaining moments of her presidency with the Ilonggos today, June 28, 2010 to inaugurate another vital infrastructure project in the province.

From the Iloilo Airport, President Arroyo will motor to Brgy. Tabucan, Cabatuan for the inauguration of the Tigum Bridge, one of the bridges destroyed by typhoon "Frank" in 2008.

The opening of the bridge will not only make travel easier going to Iloilo City but boost economic growth as well in Cabatuan and nearby municipalities.

Tigum Bridge is located at km. 21+130.20 and serves as the main thoroughfare connecting central towns of Iloilo to Iloilo City. It is also the alternate route going to the provinces of Capiz and Aklan.

The construction of its replacement began on June 18, 2009 under the supervision of the Construction Division of the Department of Public Works and Highways Regional Office 6.

The scope of work is composed of a 6-span bridge using pre-stressed concrete girders on bored pile foundation including approaches.

The project has an appropriation of P170,000 sourced from the calamity fund, based on the project profile from the DPWH.

From Iloilo, President Arroyo will proceed to Bohol and Cebu.

On June 30, President Arroyo is set to turn over the presidency to President-elect Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino. (PIA) [top]
