The rehabilitation of the Zamboanga City Sports Complex is now 80% complete, according to a public works official.

The project, which started on March 22, 2016, has been given 276 calendar days for its completion.

The contract cost for the rehabilitation and repair is at PhP187,065,353.12.

Engr. Shadimar D. Jalaidi, DPWH 9 Project Engineer, said  that workers are currently working on the installation of rubber in the playing courts.

Aside from the installation of grass and rubber, laborers are also working on putting on the tiles and painting.

The artificial grass also arrived last May 14 and is waiting for the technician from France who will supervise the installation.

He said that they will try to finish the project  by September, this year.

DPWH is the lead agency which oversees the repair and rehabilitation of the sports complex.

Contractors responsible for implementing the  project are the R.U. Aquino Construction and Development Corporation and RCDG Construction Corporation.

Recall that the grandstand was destroyed after more than 100,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) were housed in the area after the September 2013 Zamboanga Siege. (RGAAGo)
