REPRESENTATIVE Aurelio Gonzales Jr. inspected the ongoing construction of a series of projects for Pampanga's Third District that are expected to ease traffic congestion, provide safe haven during calamities, and office space for government functions.
Gonzales visited Mexico town Tuesday, September 10, and checked on the ongoing construction of the Quezon Road-Jose Abad Santos Avenue Bypass Road.
The road is expected to cut traffic time for vehicles coming from downtown Mexico and other areas and ease traffic congestion along major roads in the City of San Fernando.
Gonzales said current road networks are not enough to accommodate the large chunk of traffic coming from Mexico town and the City of San Fernando. The new bypass road will decongest parts of Mexico and provide ease of commute to Mexico's eastern side.
The Municipal Government of Mexico is also set to relocate the municipal center near the bypass road to decongest the old town center from traffic and usher in new development prospects on the areas surrounding the bypass road.
Gonzales also visited the area for the proposed construction of the San Juan-Sta. Ana Road that will connect to the ongoing construction of Sta. Ana-Arayat bypass road.
Gonzales said they are looking at all possible means to interconnect the towns of the Third District to enable development to move into the interior of the towns.
He also checked on the ongoing construction of the evacuation center and barangay hall in Sta. Ana town, as well as the ongoing construction of the San Agustin Bridge in Arayat town.
In Arayat, Gonzales checked on the area of the proposed construction and rehabilitation of the Camba-Batasan-Candating Road.
He also inspected the Camba covered court that was damaged by a recent tornado. He promised to allocate funds for the immediate rehabilitation of the covered court.
