MANILA, Philippines — Muling tiniyak ni Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio Singson na may sapat na pondo ang kagawaran upang isaayos ang mga nasirang istraktura at kalsada sa Bohol dulot ng 7.2 magnitude na lindol.

Ayon sa kalihim, aabutin ng apat na linggo ang pagsasaayos sa mga gumuhong tulay sa Bohol.

“Ang initial assessment namin dito sa tatlong tulay na nasira na nagkaroon ng collapse ang gagawin diyan we have already been materials from our depot outside of reed of Bohol and Cebu na malagyan namin ng temporary steel bridges.”

Bukod sa mga tulay, posibleng abutin din ng ilang linggo ang pagsasaayos sa mga nagkabitak-bitak na kalsada sa lalawigan.

“Dun naman sa mga kalye na bitak-bitak, 1 to 2 weeks would be sufficient to restore them maging passable pero yung permanent restoration niyan will take a little longer,” ani Singson.

Ayon pa sa kalihim, nasa P1.2 billion ang kailangang gugulin sa pagsasaayos ng mga nasira sa Bohol na manggagaling sa regular budget ng DPWH.

Sa pagtaya ni Secretary Singson, aabot sa P600 million ang gagastusin para sa full restoration ng mga imprastraktura, habang aabot naman sa kalahating bilyong piso ang gagastusin sa pagsasaayos ng mga nasirang paliparan at pantalan

Kaugnay nito, inilunsad ng DPWH ang structural resiliency program upang maiwasan ang malaking pinsalang posibleng idulot ng malakas na paglindol partikular na sa kalakhang Maynila.

Aniya, “ang ibig sabihin ng programang ito is instead of just repairing we will upgrade them so that they will be compliant with the latest building code dahil yung iba dito ay lumang luma na.”

Ayon pa sa kalihim, nasa P1.2 billion ang kailangang gugulin sa pagsasaayos ng mga nasira sa Bohol na manggagaling sa regular budget ng DPWH.

Pangunahing tututukan ng DPWH ang mga ospital, eskwelahan at iba pang public building.

Umaasa naman ang kagawaran na gagayahin ng mga nasa pribadong sektor ang gagawin nitong pagiinspeksyon at pagsasaayos sa mga gusali. (Nel Maribojoc / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)
