P 2.4 B infra projects for CDO gets RDC nod


CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY: The Regional Development Council (RDC), Northern Mindanao endorsed an additional P 2.37 billion worth of infrastructure projects for Cagayan de Oro City, a lawmaker said Tuesday.

Earlier in March, the RDC recommended P12 billion worth of projects for the 2nd District of Cagayan de Oro, District Cong. Rufus Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez asked the RDC’s endorsement for big-ticket projects that would address major problems in Cagayan de Oro, including heavy traffic and flooding in the city’s key areas during heavy rains.

The RDC unanimously endorsed the following big-ticket projects:

These projects include:

(1) Construction of a Gusa flyover worth P925 million 

(2) Installation of a mega flood control system, including booster and water pumps, in Bitan-ag Creek, Agora Market area, and Butuan-CdeO-Iligan Road (BCIR) conjunction worth P945 million; 

(3) Construction of BCIR Connector Road to the Coastal Road worth P150 million in Brgy. Gusa; 

(4) Construction of an elevated walkway worth P300 million, from the Northern Mindanao Medical Center all the way to the Gateway Tower in Limketkai; and 

(5) The conduct of a feasibility study worth P 50 million for the Comprehensive Master plan of the Cagayan de Oro Drainage System.

“We have to push for the approval of these infrastructure projects in order that problems about traffic and flooding in the city are addressed,” Rodriguez said.

During the budget hearings in September, Rodriguez worked for the approval of the P 718 billion  by the  Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and sought an additional P100 billion for more infrastructure development in the ciry’s second congressional district here. -0-
