DAVAO, Philippines — Kinilala bilang top performing agency ng Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) ang tanggapan ng Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) ng rehiyon dahil sa epektibong pagbibigay ng serbisiyo nito sa mga mamamayan ng Autonomous region.

Ang DPWH-ARMM ang napili mula sa 30 line agencies na sumailalim sa screening at evaluation na isinagawa ng governor’s initiative on system assessment.

Inilunsad ang Governor’s Initiative on System Assesment o GISA ng regional government upang hikayatin ang lahat ng mga departamento sa ilalim ng ARMM na magbigay ng transparent at effecient services sa mga mamamayan sa limang lalawigan ng rehiyon.

Isa sa mga naging basehan upang kilalanin bilang top performing agency ang DPWH-ARMM ay ang pag-rehabilitate at pag-construct nito sa 524.4 kilometers ng mga road network mula sa 7.5 billion pesos na budget.

Nakapagtala din ng 300 million pesos na savings ang kagawaran sa nakalipas na taon.

Una ng inanunsiyo ni DPWH-ARMM Secretary Emil Sadain na sa taong 2015 ay matatapos na nila at makukumpleto ang pagsemento at rehabilitate sa lahat ng mga national roads sa mga lalawigan ng Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-tawi, Lanao Del Sur at Maguindanao sa ilalim na nakalaang 10 billion pesos na budget.

“So kung isusuma total mo as to entire inventory of national roads, 100 percent paved national roads na tayo by 2015. Ibig sabihin, wala na tayong problema sa kalsada sa national roads,” saad ni Sec. Emil Sadain.

Unana ring tiniyak ni Sec. Sadain na nakahanda na silang magbigay daan sa transition period sa taong 2015 kasabay ang pakiusap sa mga opisyal na uupo sa bagong gobyerno na ipagpatuloy ang mga proyektong nakaplano na at nasimulan.

“Especially DPWH na willing kami bumaba to give way to the transition government. Basta ang hinihingi lang namin especially on infrastructures, we wanted the new government or the Bangsamoro government to continue the efforts that we have started.”

Sa transition period, papalitan ang mga kasalukuyang nakaupo sa ARMM government ng mga mapipiling opisyal ng transitional adiminstration. (Louell Requilman, UNTV News)

Binondo-Intramuros Bridge set to open in Q1 2022 — DPWH

MANILA, Philippines — The Binondo-Intramuros Bridge Project is set to open in 2022, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said.

DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, in a statement, assured that the installation of fabricated precast concrete slab panels is nearing its completion.

Of the 135 bored piles for abutments, piers, and ramps, 114 were already completed with the remaining 21 mostly at the Estero De Binondo area.

However, the DPWH reported that the presence of powerlines and other utilities along Estero de Binondo at the north approach bridge posed serious challenges in the tight schedule to complete the new bridge.

DPWH Undersecretary for Unified Project Management Office (UPMO) Operations Emil Sadain said that the P3.39 billion project is about 77% complete.

He added that they are following up their request with Meralco to move or relocate distribution poles and overhead high tension lines that pose serious safety concerns in the ongoing construction of ramps in the Binondo and Intramuros area.

The construction of the 680 lineal meter basket-handle tied steel arch bridge connecting Intramuros (at Solana Street and Riverside Drive) and Binondo (at San Fernando Bridge) with a viaduct structure over Estero de Binondo is financed by a China Aid Grant.

Although the coronavirus pandemic disrupted the job site activity, the DPWH and contractor China Road and Bridge Corporation is taking proactive and preventive measures for workers in accordance with the construction health and safety guidelines amid the coronavirus disease threat, the department further said.
