Billionaire city to go on infra binge
DAVAO CITY EARMARKS
P3.7 BILLION FOR INFRAS

MYNEWS by ROGER M. BALANZA

The Davao City government has programmed P3.6 billion worth of infrastructure projects to be implemented from 2008 to 2010.

We can afford to embark on this ambitious building program with annual revenues zooming up, said councilor Myrna Dalodo-Ortiz, the chair of the Davao City Council committee on finance.

The City Treasurer’s Office in a mid-year report said total collections had stood in July at P2 billion opening up prospects annual tax could breach the P4 billion mark this year.

Ortiz presented the program on Tuesday at the council plenary contained in the Local Development Investment Plan (LDIP) for 2008-2010.

The LDIP, approved by the city council on second reading, earmarks P2.6 billion for infrastructure projects and P1 billion in non-infra projects.

The infrastructure fund would go to road building (P1.3 billion), buildings (P645 million), drainage projects (P252 million), electrification (P93 million), bridges (P130 million) and water system (P199 million).

Programs for economic development would get P189 million, social development P588 million and development administration at P262 million would share the P1 billion non-infra fund.

DPWH: Bridge construction to finally start
By Carlo P. Mallo
Sunstar Davao
CONSTRUCTION of the long overdue Governor Generoso Bridge I will commence on November 28, as stipulated in the contract of the Department of Public Works and Highways and the contractor.

The winning contractor, Ciriaco Construction Corporation, reportedly said it will work 24 hours a day to finish the bridge by the end of April.


However, newly installed DPWH-Southern Mindanao chair Jerome Dela Rosa said the project is given 210 days for completion.

"Construction is set from November 28 until June 24 in 2008," Dela Rosa said in an interview with Sun.Star Davao Monday.

The winning bid of only P216 million closed the deal with Ciriaco Construction Corporation.

In a previous interview, DPWH Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane has admitted that it was primarily due to his efforts to bring down the cost of the bridge that caused the delay in its construction.

The original construction price of the bridge was pegged at P300 million.

Governor Generoso Bridge I was condemned last April when one of its pillars collapsed. Being one of the main arteries connecting the southern part of the city with the downtown area, traffic has been greatly affected in the entire area.

The multi-million peso traffic signalization project of the local government of Davao has been put on hold in various intersections surrounding the area due to the snarling traffic.

RDC XI to push for Davao railway system, Samal Bridge project
By Glenrose on Dec 5, 2007 in News

Davao City (6 December) — Preparatory activities for the establishment of the Davao Railway System and the Samal Bridge Project are now well on their way after the Regional Development Council XI approved in its recent meeting the creation of a Task Force that will undertake project studies for the establishment of the said railway system and the bridge project.

RDC XI vice chairman Nicasio Angelo J. Agustin said that the Council is leading the efforts in pushing for the Davao Railway System – a project identified in the Davao Regional Development Plan (DRDP), 2004-2010 as crucial for industrial development of the Davao Region.

Agustin added that the railway system will be initially established traversing the major highway of Tagum City - Carmen - Panabo City - Davao City - Sta. Cruz - Digos City. These areas comprise the “linear urban corridor” that serves as the main hub of economic activities and social integration in the Davao Region. The cities in the “linear urban corridor” are also among the major “growth centers,” intended to strengthen and enhance existing economic zones and market exchange centers. Both “linear urban corridor” and the “growth centers” are part of the medium-term strategies for development outlined in the Regional Physical Framework Plan of the Davao Region.

On the other hand, Agustin noted that the construction of the Samal Bridge has long been recognized by the RDC XI as critical to spur development in the Island Garden City of Samal, as well as, serve as the link to the other growth centers in Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental through the proposed roll-on/roll-off port facilities.

The Task Force is set to meet tomorrow, December 7, 2007 to discuss among other things the possible financing options for both projects. The group is composed of the regional directors of DTI XI, DOTC XI, DPWH XI and NEDA XI; Governors and Mayors of the local government units (LGU) of Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Tagum City, Panabo City, Digos City, Davao City, IGACOS, and the Municipality of Sta. Cruz. The private sector is represented in the Task Force through the Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (DCCCII).

THE Regional Development Council (RDC)-Southern Mindanao created a task force that will undertake project studies for the establishment of the Davao Railway System and the Samal Bridge Project.

RDC-Southern Mindanao vice chair Nicasio Angelo Agustin, also the regional director of the National Economic and Development Authority (Neda) said: "The project is crucial for the industrial development of the Davao Region."


Agustin said the Task Force was created after the council's recent meeting. He said preparatory activities for the implementation of the two projects are now being done.

The proposed railway system will initially traverse the major highways of Tagum City-Carmen-Panabo City-Davao City-Sta. Cruz-and Digos City in Davao del Sur.

These areas, he said, comprise the "linear urban corridor" that serves as the main hub of economic activities and social integration in Davao Region.

The cities in the linear urban corridor are also among the major "growth centers" intended to strengthen existing economic zones and market exchange centers.

"Both linear urban corridor and the growth centers are part of the medium-term strategies for development outlined in the Regional Physical Framework Plan of the Region," Agustin said.

The construction of the Samal Bridge will create development in the Island Garden City of Samal (Igacos).

The task force is composed of the regional directors of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC), Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), and Neda.

Governors and mayors of the local government units of Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Tagum City, Panabo City, Digos City, Davao City, Igacos, and the municipality of Sta. Cruz are also part of the task force.

The private sector, on the other hand, is represented in the Task Force through the Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc.

they wouldnt have spent (time? money?) for the FS if they were not serious about it

basta ang pagkasabi sa akin, isa ang traffic (commuter?) sa nagpa down since di pa daw enough to justify building a bridge
