First district Congressman Celso Lobregat personally supervised the removal of posts and meters of the Zamboanga City Electric Cooperative (Zamcelco) at a road widening site in an effort to hasten construction in the area.

This happened after a coordination meeting among DPWH officials, contractors and utility providers on the ongoing road construction projects in the city.

During the meeting, Lobregat put pressure anew on concerned offices and agencies to fastrack completion the soonest possible time.

The solon called on ZAMCELCO, Zamboanga City Water District (ZCWD), Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT), SkyCable and Mindanao Cable Network to expedite their resources and manpower to remove their utilities from the areas where the road widening is situated.

“Debe hinde sila man-esperahan, they should move faster, debe man process ya sila cosa cumbiene hace de pronto, hinde kel hace junto-junto todo cay this will cause further delay,” Lobregat said.

Lobregat said that he cannot afford to wait for an uncertain time for the completion of these multi-million projects as the delay will also cause further public disturbance especially to motorists plying the routes where such projects are being undertaken.  (Dexter Yap)
