DPWH to fast track completion of Mabulao Bridge in Daet


DAET, Camarines Norte, Jan. 22 (PIA) –The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) district engineering office here assured that the rehabilitation of the Mabulao Bridge in Daet town will be completed on or before mid June.

Officer in charge district engineer Simon N. Arias of the DPWH in Camarines Norte said that his office is waiting for the release of funds under General Appropriations Act (GAA) for 2014 which will be intended for the completion of the said bridge as well as other infrastructure projects of the province.

The Mabulao Bridge will now be a four-lane bridge, he said.

He said that the delay in the rehabilitation of the Mabulao Bridge was due to budget released last year amounting to P5.2 million was intended only for concrete piles and concrete capping of bridges along National roads, Mabulao Bridge and Poblacion-Magang Road.

Earlier this month, Mayor Tito Sarion of this municipality sent a letter to DPWH Secretary Rogelio Singson informing that the said bridge was totally demolished but until now, the construction itself of a new one remains to commence.

He said that the Mabulao is just a small bridge measuring 15-20 meters but the effect of not being able to utilize it on a daily basis greatly affects the people of Daet as it connects a major and commonly used road.  It is now almost a year and yet nothing concrete and certain as to when it will really be completed.

Sarion explained that constituents are continuously sending their sentiments of disappointment since they are the ones most affected by the situation especially the students and employees of Camarines Norte State College (CNSC) and the Department of Education (DepEd) Division Office.
