TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan, Oct. 6 (PIA) – The Project Monitoring Team of the Regional Project Monitoring Committee (RPMC) here recently conducted a two-day Field Monitoring Visit (FMV) to selected major infrastructure projects under the Department of Public Works and Highways’ (DPWH) Regular Infrastructure Program for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th district of Isabela.

Major infrastructure projects visited by the RPMC team include the P18.9 Million worth of Mallig River Flood Control Project- Maligaya Section;  P20 Million Road Re-blocking project with Drainage along San Mateo; P15 Million National and Arterial Road Widening project in Cabatuan; P18 million Magabito Bridge Expansion project in Mabini, Santiago City; and the P33 Million San Luis Bridge Expansion in Cordon, Isabela.

These projects were pre-selected for FMV due to their implementation slippages as reflected in the RPMES Report as of June 30, 2015. 

Present during the project site visits cum actual validation of the reported implementation status were Project Engineers from the concerned DPWH district offices who apprised the Monitoring Team on the reasons of delays.

For one of the projects visited, Engr. Arnulfo Pablo, DPWH-4th Isabela Engineering District Construction Division Head, briefed the Team on the status of the widening of the Magabito Bridge in Santiago City.   Engr. Pablo mentioned some factors of delay such as unpredictable weather conditions; road right of way problems; and fixing and transferring of cable lines and water pipelines.

“We are willing to help these utility companies since we have readily available equipment to fix and transfer these cable and water pipelines,” he said.

Engr. Pablo suggested that during the transfer of cable and water pipeline, project engineers or technicians of those utility companies must be present to avoid misunderstanding.

The Team, recommended DPWH to closely coordinate with the utility companies to prioritize action on the fixing and transfer of pipelines in order to facilitate the project completion.

The RPMC team, composed of government agencies to include National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) as chair, Philippine Information Agency (PIA), Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), Department of Budget and Management (DBM), and the Private Sector Representative for Infrastructure Development.
