THE municipality of Jose Panganiban, CamNorte will soon build a P40 million bridge at Baranggay Sta Cruz, Jose Panganiban, CamNorte, to solve mobility problem during heavy rains which would cause floods in the area.

The bridge will serve the needs of neighboring baraggays San Pedro, San Martin and San Jose, according to Vice-Mayor Ariel M Non in a message posted on the local government unit’s official Facebook site.

Non said a deal has already been signed between the Department of Public Works and Highways for the construction of the Sta Cruz bridge under the “Tulay ng Pangulo” program.

“Ang tulay na ito ay sagot sa matagal nang problem ng mga taga Sta Cruz, San Pedro, San Martin at San Jose … na sa konting ulan lang ay hindi na sila makalabas ng kanilang lugar para pumunta sa bayan (Jose Panganiban) dahil sa baha.

“Hinintay natin ito (bridge) at ngayon nga ay magkakaroon na ng katuparan,” Non said, as response to a number of queries from Facebook holders who are apparently natives of Mambulao.

Non also noted that the LGU plans to rebuild the bridges in Parang, Pag-Asa and Nakalaya, which have already outlived their usefulness.

“There are three bridges that need to be reconstructed such as the one in Parang, Pag-Asa and Nakalaya,” he said, adding that plans have already been prepared for the projects.

“We’re are just waiting for funding.”

Non has urged his Facebook audience to be patient a little more as the current LGU “is doing its best” to meet the needs of the community".

“Utay-utay lang po … at magkakaroon rin ng katuparan ang ating mga inihanay na mga proyekto.”

The bridge connecting the Poblacion and Baranggay Parang ... it was poorly designed and has become hazardous to both motorists and pedestrians, according to local officials. --MWBuzzpic by ALFREDO P HERNANDEZ
