The Department of Public Works and Highways’ District Engineer has announced the bidding of projects worth P41 million last week for the two congressional districts of Zamboanga City.
District Engineer Merham Acas said that P39 million worth of projects will be implemented for District 2 under the initiative of Rep. Erbie A. Fabian. These include school buildings, road repairs and rehabilitation, flashflood control and barangay roads.

The amount of P11 million will fund the construction of an Oncology Building at the Zamboanga City Medical Center under the initiative of District 1 Rep. Beng Climaco.
Meanwhile, Acas disclosed that the Task Force Contra Avenida has conducted  a study for the construction of a pumping station in an area in the city where flood often takes place.

The task force conducted surveying, drainage structural study and lay-out engineering for the said project.    
Acas said that most flood cases in the city are caused by heavy downpour that happen when there is high tide at sea.  Worst situation occurs when heavy downpour comes and most drainage systems  are clogged with garbage. — Allen Abastillas
