Mayor Lazatin to DPWH: Issue clarification on Cutcut Flyover, Malabanias Bridge projects

Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. has asked the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) – District Office III on Monday to issue clarifications on the date of completion of the Cutcut Flyover and Malabanias Bridge projects.

Mayor Lazatin also wants the installation of barriers and reflectors on the Cutcut Flyover posts to ensure the safety of commuters, motorists, and vehicles passing by the area.

“Pakiayos din po ang mga markings. Importante po ang seguridad ng lugar para sigurado rin po yung safety ng mga kababayan nating dumadaan sa area lalo na kapag gabi,” Lazatin explained.

According to Assistant District Engr. Arnold Ocampo, their office is set to have a meeting with Leadway Construction, the contractor of the P600-million Cutcut Flyover on Friday, July 9, regarding the flyover’s target completion in 2023.

To date, Phases 1 and 2 of the said project were already completed and the DPWH-District Office is just awaiting for the 2021 funds to be released by the national government. 

The 2020-2021 General Appropriations Act allotted P50 million for the project with another P50 million coming from the United Project Management Office of the Department of Public Works and Highways.

The remaining P500 million was already requested from the Department of Budget and Management, the DPWH said. 

Meanwhile, the Malabanias Bridge will be opened on August 9, 2021 after the contractor, Northern Builders, asked for a two-month extension from the DPWH. DPWH said this is the last extension given to the contractor to completely finish the construction.
