After discussions with CGMA, Porac dad to push Megadike project
ANGELES CITY–After paying a visit to former President-turned-Pampanga Second District Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Porac Councilor Michael Tapang assured that his expansion proposal of a portion of the FVR megadike will push through.
In a press briefing, Tapang said he had discussions about the development of the west lateral portion of the megadike into a toll road with Arroyo.
“[Arroyo] asked us to discuss the proposal to her since she’s our representative in the second district so we paid her a visit at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center,” Tapang said.
“The proposal will be realized since CGMA said there are investors and funding for it,” he added.
Tapang, Porac’s first councilor, said the proposal will cost about P500 million apart from engineering expenses. His proposal will be carried out through a public-private partnership with the provincial government as proponent.
In 2009, Tapang proposed the 16-kilometer development of the FVR megadike’s west lateral portion into a toll road which is expected to bring progress to their town.
The road development is also seen as the “ultimate solution” to road destruction brought by quarry trucks that ply along the highways and other major thoroughfares.
The future toll road will include access roads for quarry trucks.
Tapang said the development of the road will also open business opportunities in villages surrounding the area. ●Charlene A. Cayabyab
