Dalipe reiterates order to expedite infra projects

Mayor John Dalipe, as represented by chief of staff Atty. Rochelle Magnolia Tamin, Tuesday met with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Regional Office IX, contractors and representatives from public utility companies for updates on ongoing infrastructure projects in the city funded by the national government.

To recall, the local chief executive earlier this month had ordered the completion of the said projects by year end to spare motorists and commuters from the inconveniences and risks of navigating around excavations.

The constructions directed completed by December include a flood control mitigation project and a pumping station to address the inundation perennially experienced within the city proper, as well as road network development initiatives along major throughways, among others.

Meanwhile, telecommunications companies were entreated to coordinate with the Zamboanga City Electric Cooperative (ZAMCELCO) for the subsequent transfer of latter’s electrical posts that are obstructing traffic flow.

Also present during the said meeting were City Engineer Chris Navarro and other key city department heads, particularly those constituting Task Force Alambre (TF Alambre). Headed by City General Services Officer Engr. Rene dela Cruz, TF Alambre was established last February and charged with the clearing of dead electrical wires and cables discarded by public utility companies. (Claudine Uniana)
