DAVAO CITY – The Department of Public Works and Highways or DPWH is all systems go for the iconic Samal Island – Davao City connector where they have conducted a land survey and geotechnical investigation.
DPWH Senior Undersecretary Emil K. Sadain inspected with Assistant Secretary Constante A. Llanes Jr. and Project Director Rodrigo I. Delos Reyes of the Unified Project Management Office – Bridge Management Cluster the two ongoing drilling of boreholes for geotechnical investigation in Davao onshore under the supervision of Project Manager Joweto V. Tulaylay and Project Engineer John Christian T .Gaden.
The geotechnical investigation plan prepared by the design and construction contractor China Road and Bridge Corporation will have a total of 97 boreholes – 63 for Davao onshore, 18 offshore, and 16 for Samal onshore.
Senior Undersecretary Sadain said that the final alignment of the proposed main bridge including the connecting eastern/western offshore and onshore approach bridge, the Davao interchange ramp bridge and approach road have been thoroughly studied with the most beneficial effects in terms of technical, financial, economic, environmental and social impact.
The project already has all the necessary permits and requirements from local government units and national government agencies and both the local government units of Island Garden City of Samal (IGACOS) and Davao City have expressed no objection to the current bridge alignment, said Bonoan.
Once completed, it will be seen to facilitate the economic development of the Davao Region, and further boost the tourism potential of IGACOS known for its pristine beach destinations. Jocelyn Tabangcura-Domenden
