Pampanga infra dev’t draws praise from DPWH sec
Public Works and Highways Acting Secretary Roger Mercado praised the infrastructure development in Pampanga province during a recent visit.
Last Friday, the Cabinet official made a visit to Pampanga, particularly to the cities of San Fernando and Angeles, to inspect the ongoing projects of the DPWH.
Mercado checked the progress of the the ongoing construction of the Angeles-Magalang Bypass Road project, Cutcut Flyover in Angeles City, and the new offices inside the DPWH-Central Luzon compound in the City of San Fernabdo.
“Sa physical appearance ng ating mga siyudad dito sa San Fernando at Angeles City, malaki na ang pinagkaiba. It has evolved into a modern city,” he said.
“Makikita natin na very vibrant ang economy at nasubaybayan din sa infrastructure development,” Mercado said.
He said the ongoing construction of the DPWH-Central Luzon Alternate Site Building was very important and timely in case of future disasters.
He said the building would serve as an alternative command center should an earthquake such as the “Big One” strike Metro Manila.
“God forbid it happens but just in case, we know we are ready,” Mercado said.
“Mayroon tayo agad opisina outside of Metro Manila para masiguro na seamless ang ating operation because DPWH has a very important role when it comes to disaster management, rehabilitation and sometimes rescue of lives, too,” he said.
