DPWH completes 200-lineal meter dike along Bicol River Basin
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed the construction of a 200-lineal meter dike along Bicol River Basin in Barangay Taban, Minalabac, Camarines Sur.
Secretary Mark A. Villar said that the completed dike would prevent scouring of soil along river banks and reduce the hazards and risks of property damage.
“The dike also serves as a point of entry for local farmers and fisherfolks, and tourism activities of the municipality hosted by different local government agencies”, Villar was quoted as saying in a statement.
Scope of works include construction of 0.2 kilometer dike along Libmanan River with 2.5 meter wide portland concrete cement pavement all throughout the span, 398 meters of railing along the structure, with provision of drainage structures and slope protection.
The project was implemented by Camarines Sur 2nd District Engineering Office in the amount of P44.8 million.
