“The Department of Public Works and Highways ay mayroong ininsure na accessible medical services for the residents of Brgy. Bucari in the highland part ng Leon, Iloilo. ‘Yong ating two-story building health center sa area na ‘yan,” Andanar said.
The PCOO Chief also mentioned the access road from junction Iloilo East Coast Capiz Road – junction Passi-San Rafael-Lemery Sara Road leading to Banate Port that has helped improved transport accessibility in Iloilo and Panay Island.
He added that the new bypass road – the 1.75-kilometer bypass road along junction of Iloilo East Coast Capiz Road in the town of Barotac Nuevo also enables faster travel to Northern Iloilo.
These projects are included in the Build Build Build program of the Duterte administration.
Andanar noted that many have already benefited from the Build Build Build program intended to usher the “Golden age of Infrastructure” in the country.
“Marami ang nakinabang sa ating Build Build Build na programa kaya nga tayo ngayon ay (nasa) “Golden Age of Infrastructure” dahil we are spending almost five percent of GDP to infrastructure now that led to 29,000 kilometers of roads being built. More than 450 seaports built, more than 214 airport projects completed,” Andanar said.
In the said radio interview, he also acknowledged the tie-up with the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster sa Pilipinas, including Bombo Radyo, that greatly contributed in the dissemination of news and the accomplishments of the Duterte administration to Filipinos.
“Most importantly, ‘yong pakipag-tie-up natin sa Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster sa Pilipinas tulad po ng Bombo Radyo na ang laki po talaga ng tulong maiparating sa ating mga kababayan ang balita,” Andanar said. (JBG/laf/PIA6-Iloilo)
