The Cebu City Government will start implementing its P200-million road concreting and asphalting projects next month.
The council already approved the P50 million for road concreting projects in the north district barangays two weeks after the P50 million share for the south district was approved.
The council has also approved and confirmed the list of barangays where the P100 million worth of asphalting projects will be implemented.
For asphalting, the biggest allocation goes to the rehabilitation of Talamban-Bacayan-Pit-os road, which is at P19.5 million.
Under the resolution filed by Councilor Roberto Cobarrubias, the asphalting will be conducted in 37 areas covering 25 barangays in the city.
The road concreting, on the other hand, will cover a total of 30 villages in the city, 15 from the north district and south district, where each of the identified barangays will have a road area of 1,940.24 sq. m. to be concreted, at P3.33 million per project.
The approval of the implementation of the road concreting and asphalting projects came after the Department of Engineering and Public Works (DEPW) Chief Engr. Kenneth Enriquez wrote the city council.
In a letter dated Feb. 1, Enriquez asked the legislative body to expedite the project’s approval so they can proceed immediately with its procurement and implementation.
