Infrastructure Development in Bohol
« on: September 20, 2007, 08:36:30 AM »
--excerpts from the 2004 Accomplishment Report of Bohol Governor Erico Aumentado

Apart from the mega projects, the Provincial Government under my watch has not been remissed in looking after the convenience of the Boholanos and visitors. This year alone saw the completion – inauguration – of some of the 20 bridges under the President’s Bridge Program costing P188.21 million. Also with national counterpart are the P258-million concreting and asphalting of vital provincial roads.

The counter-parting strategy  forms part of the “bibingka principle” whereby the LGU does not depend on national funding alone, but shells out local funds, too, for a project to take off and move. Sometimes, the local counterpart is bigger than the national counterpart, like the Gawad Kalinga Housing Project wherein so far, the province allocated P1.5 million to President Arroyo’s P1 million.

For its infrastructure projects, the Provincial Government this year acquired a  bulldozer and other heavy equipment worth P53 million. The  projects include the rehabilitation of the Bilar-Sevilla-Sikatuna Road and the Guindulman–Pilar Road with an aggregate length of 42 kilometers, costing P8.8 million, which the Engineer Support Batallion implemented.

            But the old projects need repair, rehabilitation or enhancement, too. The GSO has completed two standard market buildings in Tubigon, the Capitol annex building, and a two-classroom school building in Catigbian; rehabilitated the PTO, the Governor’s Office, old COA and budget offices for conversion into the new PAO and the Human Resource Management  Office, respectively, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan session hall, pre-conference room and offices, the Governor’s Mansion to house a conference room and offices; renovated the Mansion’s garage into a product display center; repaired and renovated the Cong. Natalio Castillo Memorial Hospital building; reconstructed the perimeter fence of the CPG Sports Complex and improved the water supply of the Bohol Detention and Rehabilitation Center (BDRC).

            Bohol is an island. The link to other provinces would therefore be the ports. This administration urged and succeeded to work on the Philippine Ports Authority  through then PPA General Manager Alfonso Cusi, to rehabilitate and expand the Tagbilaran City Tourism Port and the roll on-off ports of Jagna, Tubigon and Ubay that are part of President Gloria macapagal-Arroyo’s Strong Republic Highway, all costing about P650 million. Also to allow passage of bigger vessels, the PPA has approved our request for dredging of the approaches to the Tagbilaran, Tubigon and Ubay ports.

            Finally, we have included in the DPWH and Regional Development Council Medium Term/Regional Development Investment Program the improvement of the following strategic roads for implementation: The port to port highway of Tubigon to Jagna via Sierra Bullones, the Loay Interior Road to Trinidad Tourism Highway,  the Alicia-Pilar-Sierra Bullones-Carmen to Clarin Agro-Tourism Highway, the Tagbilaran-Sikatuna-Loboc and Sikatuna to Bilar via Sevilla road network, the Antequera-San Isidro-Catigbian-Sagbayan-danao-Getafe and Mahayag (San Miguel) road network.

            Foremost of all is the preparation of the feasibility study on pro bono basis by Pacific Consultants International for the BCRIP III which covers the Ubay-Mabini-Candijay-Cogtong-anda-Guindulman roads, the Baclayon Bypass, the Tagbilaran Bypass, the Panglao Island Circumferential Road and Center Road Improvement. The feasibility study is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2005, as requested by this representation.
