The ambitious by-pass road project of District 2 Congressman Erbie A. Fabian is up for public bidding and is expected to be implemented anytime this year, according to Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) District Engineer Merham Acas.

The road will connect barangays in the east to the west part of the city for its accessibility and possibly to decongest the heavy flow of traffic in the city, Acas said.

He said that Fabian’s initiated project will most likely cost billions of pesos but an initial fund of P310 million has already been appropriated for the Phase 1  that includes road opening and negotiations with lot owners.

However, Acas explained that while it is true that Fabian is the one pushing through this ambitious project, the city government under the leadership of Mayor Celso Lobregat and District 1  Congresswoman Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar have also exerted efforts  to allocate funds to help materialize the project.

“This is a concerted effort among our top leaders. The city is so lucky to have leaders like Congressman Erbie Fabian, Mayor Lobregat and Congresswoman Salazar,” Acas said in a radio interview with “Straight to the Point”, the  most outstanding Public Affairs Program over Tatak RMN.

The by-pass road which is more or less 30 kilometers long will start somewhere in Barangay Culianan (east coast)  and extend to San Ramon in the west coast.

Just like the Integrated Bus Terminal, the by-pass road is the flagship project and the long term dream of Congressman Fabian.

Fabian said that before his term ends, he will make it sure that sufficient funds will be appropriated for the purpose, with the help of his partners in the government service like Lobregat and Salazar. — Jimmy Villaflores
