Agusan Bridge repair nearing completion

The on-going rehabilitation works of Wawa Bridge in Sibagat, Agusan del Sur will be completed soon.

This was learned from the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Regional Office XIII after Secretary Rogelio L. Singson ordered that all carry-over projects must be completed by the middle of this year 2011.

With an accomplishment of 85.51% as of May 31, 2011, repair works, which includes reinforcement/replacement of structural steel component, repair/replacement of dilapidated 228.20 lineal meter concrete deck slab, asphalt overlay, painting and electrical lighting and bank protection structure, will be completed on June 30, 2011 as targeted.

Regional Director Danilo E. Versola said that inspite of two (2) recent flooding which affected the construction activities, the contractor doubled its efforts to complete the project Director Versola enjoins the motoring public to bear with the temporary inconvenience brought about by the project as this will bring more benefits in the days ahead.

Earlier, Secretary Singson has directed all the 16 Regional Directors and 180 District Engineers that fast tracking the completion of 2010 projects must be done in order to give focus on the implementation of CY 2011 projects, otherwise targets to achieve the inclusive growth vision of the President Benigno S. Aquino III administration will be jeopardized.

Relatively, DPWH Region 13 has 68 projects under the CY 2011 Regular Infrastructure Program for a total appropriation of P2.387 Billion. DPWH targets that by 2014 all national arterial roads are paved and all bridges along the national road are permanent by 2016.
