President Arroyo inspects Iloilo flood control project

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (5 December) -- President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo inspected the status of implementation of the construction of the Iloilo Flood Control project in Barangay Banuyao, Lapas District Iloilo City, yesterday.

President Arroyo was further briefed on the status of the construction of the said project by DPWH Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane and Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Trenas.

Even without issuing a statement, it could be gleamed from the President’s gesture, a satisfaction on the way the infrastructure project was constructed being one of her top agenda to build more infrastructure to serve a strong foundation for the country’s economy.

The Iloilo Flood Control project aims to create a more dynamic regional economy by providing a flood-free urban center as an important part of the strategy furthering national development.

It also aims to mitigate flood damage, create a more sustainable urban community and provide a safer and more pleasant living condition for the urban area of Iloilo.

The construction of the Iloilo Flood Control Project Package I started in April 2006 by the Korean contractor, Hanjinm Heavy Industries and Construction Co. Ltd. The Contract Package I includes the construction of the Jaro Floodway, and the improvement of the Tigum and Aganan Rivers.

The Quarterly newsletter of the Iloilo Flood Control reported that the China International Water and Electric Corporation implements the Contract Package 2 of the project which started in March 2006. This package includes the improvement of Iloilo River, the improvement of Upper Ingore Creek and the improvement of the Jaro River Mouth.

The Flood Control Project Phase II which is expected to be completed on February 12, 2009 will be a great solution to the perennial problem of flashfloods in the city. (PIA) [top]
