The regional director of the Department of Public Works and Highways in Central Luzon, Roseller Tolentino, assured that all construction activities in Central Luzon are strictly monitored, especially those in the district offices.
That will ensure that no project is left behind in schedule, he said in a statement.
“This is our response to the crisis that has lingered in the country for a year now,” Tolentino said.
“We shall take each day as a regular working day but with insurmountable efforts to live up to the timetable of Secretary (Mark Villar) and the national government,” he added.
The DPWH recently completed the construction of three one-storey prefabricated Standard Health Facilities in Mariveles, Bataan.
DPWH Bataan district engineer Ulysses Llado said the P41 million infrastructure located in barangay Alasasin aims to provide additional quarantine facilities in the municipality and will serve as one of the main evacuation areas during calamities and other health related emergencies.
“Three clusters of 20-footer container vans were customized into 16-units air-conditioned emergency health facilities. Each cluster is equipped with comfort rooms, male and female quarters for frontline health personnel, a nurse station, and an electrical room,” Llado said in a Philippine Information Agency report.
The facility was also provided with a ramp for persons with disabilities, a centralized hallway passage, a portable generator set and a single-phase electrical power distribution system per health facility cluster, the report said.
