Naga to seek funding for new infra projects

By Kim Villafuerte

Naga City Councilors collectively agreed to support Mayor Nelson Legacion’s request for a total of 1.5 billion pesos worth of funds from the national government for the rehabilitation and development of roads and infrastructures in the city.

According to City Councilor Joselito Del Rosario, Naga City is falling behind in road and infrastructure development compared to other cities like Legazpi and Sorsogon where tourism and economic growth have been boosted because of well-paved roads.

The request includes the following: 350 million for the construction of the EcoZone Road in barangays Cararayan and Carolina, 200 million for the construction of Pacol-Salunguigui Road, 160 million for the Cararayan-Salunguigui Road, another 160 million for the Bicol River Flood Control and 70 million for the construction of the Sagop bridge in Brgy. Tabuco, 300 million for the access road leading to People’s Park and Recreation Center as well as another 300 million for the construction/improvement of bypass and diversion roads in Magarao-Canaman-Libmanan Jct PPH Road amounting to a total of 1,540,000,000 pesos.

Moreover, City Councilor Salvador Del Castillo said that there’s no harm in requesting the President of the Philippines to fund some of the projects that the city cannot afford since it’s the Office of the President who has leeway when it comes to the national fund.

The Councilors hope that once the request has been granted and the construction of roads and infrastructures in the city becomes a success, it will lead to the city’s continuous economic growth.
