With the onset of the rainy season, DPWH District 1 Engr. Boying Flores said that they’re maximizing the remaining days to have all their infra projects in full blast. Engr. Flores said that they have a total of 31 projects for CY 2020 0f which 12 are located in Dinalupihan, 9 in Orani, 3 in Abucay, 3 in Samal, 1 in Morong and 3 had to be stopped last March because of the pandemic but they were able to resume last month, July.
The projects consist of construction of multi-purpose buildings, construction and rehabilitation of roads, flood control projects and network development programs 5 of which have been completed, 2 are new and 24 are on-going. Flores said they are doing their best to complete majority of these projects before the year ends. When asked if the contractors of these projects will be penalized with the delay of the projects, Engr. Flores said that they were given an extension since the cause of the delay is due to the pandemic but he was also quick to say that they need to accomplish it with quality.
