DPWH Hastens CDO, Iligan Rehab

MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has spent P1.47 billion as it hastens the rehabilitation project in the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan and other areas of Northern Mindanao, which were among those severely damaged by typhoon "Sendong."

At present, the DPWH is rushing the ongoing road works along Cagayan de Oro-Iligan Road at the municipalities of Gitagun, Libertad, and Initao in Misamis Oriental, which already cost the government P107 million for its repairs.

Included is the El Salvador section amounting to P29.37 million, the DPWH said.

Along Cagayan de Oro City - Butuan City Road, the DPWH is conducting repair works on six sections, wherein three of them were funded from the savings derived from open competitive biddings done for these projects.

Another three road rehabilitation projects were programmed for this year by the DPWH.

Tropical storm "Sendong" dumped heavy rains before Christmas in Mindanao last year, causing immediate flooding reminiscent of the typhoon "Ondoy" in Metro Manila.

Rampaging flood waters from swollen rivers destroyed several bridges and roads namely Mandalug Bridges 1 and 2 in Iligan City and the Dansolijon Road and Cala-nan Bridge in Cagayan de Oro City.
