MORE than P33 million worth of infrastructure projects in the southern part of Cebu Province are expected to be completed before July 2016.

A team headed by engineer Bobby Lim of the Provincial Engineering Office (PEO) yesterday inspected the projects, which included school buildings, water supply system and roads.

The PEO project status report revealed that a chunk of the P33.28-million allocation for infrastructure or P20.5 million went to the concreting of roads in San Fernando, Argo and from Alegria to Alcoy, and for the improvement of a road in San Fernando.

The roads, Lim said, will be seven meters wide.

The projects also included the construction of two-classroom school buildings in six schools. The new school buildings, which cost a total of P8.55 million, will rise in Kagsing Elementary School and Mangaco Elementary School in Ginatilan, Calangcang Primary School in Badian, El Pardo Elementary School in Boljoon, Zaragosa National High School in Badian and Cansaloay High School in Oslob.


Lim said that the school buildings, whose construction began yesterday, will be completed in 105 days.

Lim also led the inspection of the P2.24-million water supply project in Argao’s Barangay Gutlang and the P1.99-million Farmers Trading and Multi-purpose Center in Barangay Tumalog, Oslob.

Next month, the PEO will inspect projects in northern Cebu, which include P88.55-million in road works and school buildings worth P7.23 million.

Like those in the south, the projects in northern Cebu are expected to be completed before July 2016 or the end of Gov. Hilario Davide III’s first term.
