The City Government hopes to complete the much-anticipated Governor Camins – Governor Ramos road project by the end of 2015.

City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) head Assistant and concurrent Assistant City Administrator Elmeir Apolinario reported that the pre-procurement process for the Php 12 million road project has already begun.

“Hopefully, before the year ends, we will have a road opening in the area of Governor Camins and Governor Ramos,” Apolinario said Monday morning, July 13 in the press conference at City Hall.

Apolinario explained the project cover the one kilometer road concreting, the road opening, and the relocation of the La Virgen del Pilar in the Centro Pastoral area, as the project is expected to cut through the Iglesia Catolica property.

Last May, the local government led by City Mayor Beng Climaco successfully concluded the negotiations for the road opening with the Archdiocese headed by Archbishop Romula dela Cruz.

This development came approximately 30 years after the project was first conceptualized.

After the pre-procurement, the project will then be bidded out and following all legal procedures, commence implementation.

“In the coming days, the project will be bidded out, and in a month’s time or 45 days, the project will be implemented,” he said.

The road project, which will open from the Nuñez Extension Governor Camins Avenue extending to Governor Ramos Avenue in Sta. Maria, is expected to reduce traffic congestion and to lessen inconvenience to motorists and commuters.—(Jasmine Mohammadsali)
