TAGAYTAY CITY, Nov. 15 — President Benigno S. Aquino III assured residents of Cavite Thursday the government would continue implementing infrastructure projects to improve the traffic flow and overall road safety there.

Speaking to reporters at the sidelines of the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas’ 38th Top Level Management Conference, the President said the Dept. of Public Works and Highways had various projects lined up that were being implemented or are soon to be implemented for Cavite.

“We are really improving all the roads between Manila and Cavite. And talagang either we are fixing the roads or widening them,” Public Works Secretary Rogelio Singson, who was with the President, said.

Singson added the DPWH would soon be implementing “other major initiatives” such as the Ternate-Nasugbu road project that will decongest the Tagaytay Ridge that goes to the province of Batangas and will provide a scenic view on the Ternate, Puerto Azul, all the way to Camilo Coast.

Another infrastructure project, Singson said is the Cavite-Laguna Expressway “that will open up the whole of Cavite and Laguna especially as we try to decongest Metro Manila.”

The President then interjected with a list of infrastructure projects lined up for the province of Cavite:

Asphalt overlay and widening of the Manila-Cavite Road, Kawit-Noveleta Diversion Road, including right of way acquisition; Governor’s Drive- Carmona- Dasmarinas-Trece Matirez Road including bridges and approaches; widening of the Pulunan Bridge and its approaches;

Construction of the Kawit-Noveleta Diversion Rood including road right of way acquisition and then, lastly, the widening of the Bangkal-GMA Bridge in Dasmarinas.

“So, we will continue to improve, because this is the major thrust of the government — tourism,” Singson said. (PNA)
