BILLIONS FOR ROAD PROJECTS


THE national government will pour billions of pesos for Iloilo road improvement projects in preparation for possible investments that the new airport in Sta. Barbara-Cabatuan area will generate.

This was learned from Iloilo City Mayor Jerry P. Treñas who attended the joint Regional Development Councils meeting with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo relative to the creation of the Central Philippines “mega-region” in Cebu last week.

The Central Philippines mega-region is composed of Regions 4-B, 5, 6, 7 and 8. It aims to identify ongoing and proposed projects by the National Economic and Development Authority (Neda), particularly infrastructure projects that need priority funding.

The mega region setup is covered by a four-year development plan from 2006-2010 aimed at spurring investments in the regions.

Treñas said Western Visayas will get the bulk of funding for improvement of roads and power supply.

“The funding is allotted for proposed road-widening projects in preparation for the operations of the new Iloilo airport,” Treñas said.

Treñas said the Iloilo-Sta. Barbara road rehabilitation starting from El 98 in Jaro district got an allocation of P268million.

Some P235million is intended for the expansion of the two-lane road from Montinola Bridge in Simon Ledesma, Jaro to Zarraga town.

“It will decongest heavy vehicular traffic in the said area,” the mayor stressed.

Treñas added that a P1-billion circumferential road will be established in the metropolis linking Jaro, Mandurriao and Arevalo districts.

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) have also considered the construction of a P6-billion Metro Iloilo Road Network which will include six circumferential roads connecting the city to nearby municipalities.

There is also the ongoing Iloilo East Coast-Capiz Road project costing P476million while a P1.2-billion Iloilo East-West Road that will traverse the Concepcion-Sara-San Rafael-Passi-Calinog is being proposed.

Iloilo City, being the gateway to Panay especially to the world-famous Boracay Island, is also eyed for the implementation of the proposed P2.664-billion Iloilo City-Caticlan, Aklan highway.

To improve the southbound route to Antique province, there is the ongoing P142-million Iloilo-Asluman road rehabilitation and the P448-million Iloilo-Anini-y-V. Jimenez, Antique road section project.

There is also the proposed P235-million inter-provincial road connecting Leon-Tubungan in Iloilo to San Remigio, Antique.

Bad road network is one of Iloilo's major problem in infrastructure. When these projects get completed, there factor of Iloilo having too few spaces of development will be eliminated because of accessibility of large open spaces within the metro.

When they said that the Iloilo - Sta. Barbara road will be "rehabilitated" does it include a road widening too? ... Last time I passed by there, the road was only 2 lanes (one on both sides)

Also, looking forward to the 1B Circumferencial Road linking Jaro, Mandurriao, and Arevalo. And the P2.664-billion Iloilo City-Caticlan, Aklan highway.
