Camiguin Island abuzz with P51-M infra projects


MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, Jan 30 (PIA) — A total of P51-million is being poured on public infrastructure projects here in this island-province. 

All these constructions and improvement projects are now ongoing, like the construction of the Camiguin Tourism Center and Sport Complex getting the biggest chunk of P17.5 million. 

Governor Jurdin Jesus M. Romualdo said that in two years time, the province will be ready to host the next regional sports meet. 

The Camiguin Tourism Center and Sports Complex in Mambajao, the capital town, will hold a basketball and volleyball court, archery area, as well as an Olympic-sized swimming pool. 

Romualdo added that the oval which was already laid inside the complex will be rubberized completely before summer ends, and that its drainage system is likewise being set in place. 

Another priority project here is the Benoni Port Development, which is the construction of an additional ramp at an estimated cost of P7.9 million and funded by the Philippine Ports Authority. 

Other infrastructure projects cover the concreting of farm-to-market-roads and improvements inside the provincial capitol complex. 

Romualdo noted that from its P240-million internal revenue allotment (IRA), P40 million will be allotted, this year, for the improvement and construction of roads, especially those leading to tourist spots. (PIA 10)
