DPWH VII, Cebu City
24 August 2015
President Benigno S. Aquino III visited Cebu where he attended a briefing on the major infrastructure projects in the province presented by Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio “Babes” Singson held at the Equipment Management Division inside the DPWH VII facility in Cebu City.
Approximately Php 23 billion worth of infrastructure projects were constructed in Cebu between 2010 and 2015. These projects led a significant growth in the province’s economy and tourism.
In his speech, President Aquino guaranteed the Cebuanos of continued support from the government in their efforts to further develop their province. “Habang umuunlad ang Cebu, nandito naman ang inyong gobyerno, tinatapatan ito ng kinakailangan ninyong imprastraktura, para magtuloy-tuloy ang inyong pag-arangkada’t pag-asenso,” he said.
Prior to the briefing, the President conducted a windshield inspection of the Mactan Circumferential Road widening project in Lapu-Lapu City and the rehabilitated Sergio Osmeña Boulevard in Cebu City, two of the province’s ongoing infrastructure projects.
