CALBAYOG CITY – The
Department of Public Works and Highways Samar First District
Engineering Office has allocated P80 million for the construction of
634 linear meters of flood control (FC) structures along Tinambacan
This project as well as
the P71 million flood control structure along Jibatang River are two
of the major FC projects to be carried out this 2018. The District
office now has P671 million worth of flood control projects, P151
million more than the existing P520 million previously reported.
The area near Tinambacan
River is one of the low-lying areas in the City. Residents and their
properties are greatly affected when water level rises due to
continuous heavy rains during typhoon season. This project mitigates
the occurrence of such, thereby decreasing fatalities and damage
costs while maintaining the safety of residents.
The project’s Notice to
Proceed (NTP) was issued to CTC Builder & Supplies Inc. and Joint
Venture VCD Const. & Supplies last February 9, 2018.
It is expected to be
completed within 240 calendar days.
