The road flyover projects in Buhang, Jaro and Hibao-an, Mandurriao in Iloilo City would have P100 million each at yearend.

District Engr. Rodney Gustilo of the Iloilo City District Engineering Office (ICDEO), DPWH told HilwayNews today “the two flyovers are among the 16 projects at the ICDEO that suffered delays in implementation.”

These are projects whose approved budgets of about P305 million were categorized “for late release (FLR)” and are awaiting the ‘multi-year contractual authority (MYCA)’ once the 2021 annual budget is passed, Gustilo said.

He added that the P305 million FLRs represent about 33% of the P900 million infrastructure projects for 2020 under the ICDEO.

For 2021 the ICDEO has submitted through the DPWH head office a proposed budget of P1.7 billion, Engr. Gustilo disclosed.

The Hibao-an flyover project costs P410 million and the Buhang flyover P340 million, both on multi-year “progressive funding.”
