The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has started the conduct of  soil exploration drilling along the stretch of MCLL Highway towards Gov. Camins intersection for the purpose of the upcoming fly-over project which was proposed by Congressman Celso L. Lobregat.

DPWH Asst.District Engineer Antonio Gonzales said that the contractor has already started deploying their drilling machine which is presently seen in an enclosed area in the middle of the highway along Jolibee Sta. Cruz intersection for the soil testing & exploration drilling which will cross towards Bagsakan Center area along Gov. Camins.

Gonzales said that at present, some 10 holes with about 35 meters distance from each other is being done to determined the soil quality which is necessary for the foundation of the proposed fly-over project.

"We have to establish the soil quality in the said location where the fly-over will be erected,in order also to determine the type of foundation to be constructed,"Gonzales said.

Gonzales said that they have to get the exact soil samples in the area for foundation determination necessary for the ongoing feasibility for the same project.

For his part,the project proponent,Congressman Celso Lobregat is also asking due considerations from the motorists plying the MCLL-Veterans intersection to bear with the contractor doing the ground works to pave the way for the fly-over project.

Lobregat said that this project is very vital to resolve and ease-up the traffic congestion problems the city is facing.

"As you can see,it is the national government solving the major infrastructure problems in the city,as long as I am here as a public servant,I am always committed to serve the people in my humble capacity," Lobregat said.

The MCLL-Gov.Camins fly-over is one of the two which was proposed by Congressman Lobregat and will be funded by the national government through DPWH Build,Build,Build Program.- Dexter Yap
