Davao City Gets Additional P20-M Infra Funding From House Speaker

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – House Speaker Prospero Nograles has released an additional P20-million in fresh funding for various infrastructure projects in Davao City in Mindanao.

Lawyer Karlo Nograles, son and chief of staff of the solon, said most of the funding will go to the completion of ongoing construction and repair and rehabilitation of multipurpose buildings in villages in the city’s first congressional district.

Among the villages are Barangays 76-A (Ecoland), Gulfview Subdivision in Bago Aplaya, Lanzona Subdivision in Matina Aplaya, Southville Maa, Barangay 21 and Wellspring in Catalunan Grande.

Other villages also included in the repair and rehabilitation of their multipurpose buildings are Sanggilangan in Barangay Maa, Saloruha in Barangay Talomo and Central Park.

Part of the additional fund will also be used for the construction of new multipurpose buildings in Alpha Homes in Barangay Matina Aplaya and at the Duterte National High School in Barangay Talomo, as well as for the construction of new multipurpose pavements in Elenita Heights in Barangay 39-D, Barangay 11-B and Barangay 2-A.

”These projects have long been promised to the residents of these barangays, the House Speaker is merely making good on his promises,” the young Nograles said.

For this year alone, the Speaker has allocated some P600-million for roadwork and infrastructure through his Oplan Kalsada Infrastructure Development Program.
