The Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) allocated P556 million to rehabilitate seven ports in various parts of the country.

Earlier, the Department of Transportation and Communications, the PPA mother agency, set aside P93.8 million to refurbish the municipal ports in Corcuera, Romblon; Placer, Surigao del Norte; Bacacay, Sto. Domingo, and Pili—all in Albay; Palid, Zamboanga Sibugay; and Melgar in Dinagat Island.

This time the P556-million project aims to give a facelift to the Iloilo Commercial Port Complex, the Tabaco Port in Albay, the Ormoc Port in Leyte, the Dumangas Port also in Iloilo, the Lucena City Port, the Dumaguete City Port, and the Pio Duran Port also in Albay.

“This is in anticipation of the increased number of passengers and cargoes in these ports,” Transportation Secretary Manuel Roxas said. “Through an open and transparent public bidding, we hope to generate interest among our local companies to take part in the government’s effort to provide a convenient, affordable, reliable, efficient, and safe sea transport system.”

The Iloilo commercial port project calls for the construction of a back-up area, the excavation of existing seabed up to required elevation, the installation of interlocking concrete blocks pavement, construction of shear keys and lateral drainage for drainage system as well as a port lighting system, amounting to P183.2 million.

In Tabaco City, Albay, its port also requires the construction of a back-up area, installation of interlocking concrete blocks pavement, construction of shear keys, construction of 610mm reinforced concrete pipe culvert, an RC ditch, a catch drain manhole and a catch basin as well as a port lighting system, costing P52.6 million.

The Ormoc Port, meanwhile, needs a back-up area and a RoRo Ramp on fill, the excavation of existing seabed up to required elevation, installation of interlocking concrete block pavement, supply and installation of RDF V500H x 1500L mooring bollard, an RC ditch and catch drain manhole, installation of 760mm reinforced concrete pipe and a port lighting system, amounting to P91.2 million.

The P63.2 million Dumangas port project in Iloilo City entails the construction of back-up area and RoRo Ramp on fill, excavation of existing seabed up to required elevation, installation of interlocking concrete pavement, construction of Portland cement concrete pavement for RoRo ramp on fill, and a port lighting system, among others.

The Lucena City port project warrants the construction of a marshalling yard, paving of the existing back-up area and port lighting system, totaling P33.2 million.

The Dumaguete City port entails the rehabilitation of RC Pier I, amounting to P76.6 million; while the Pio Duran port in Albay entails the construction of a back-up area, an RC platform and a RoRo Ramp, and port lighting system, costing P65.2 million.
