ILOILO CITY – The General Luna-Jalandoni Flyover will become operational in April, or two months ahead of schedule, according to Regional Director Rolando Asis of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who was in town to inspect the ongoing construction, had insisted of an earlier completion date.
The structure is expected to boost investment and increase productivity in the city and sorrounding areas on top of the obvious objective of improving the flow of traffic.
“It is originally scheduled for completion six months from now, but we will work overtime to finish the job earlier,” Asis told the President.
The flyover, the second constructed in the city under the Mega Bridges for Urban and Rural Development Project, has five spans and four piers with a total length of 282 meters. It has a P386.6 million price tag.
Other projects constructed in the province at the behest of the President include the P4.2 billion Iloilo flood control system, the P34 million slaughter house and the electrification of the main road to the new airport in Cabatuan, among others.
