Iloilo Guv. Defensor vows to expedite construction of Iloilo-Guimaras bridge
Iloilo Govenor Arthur Defensor Sr. on Thursday, October 13, said he is doing everything in his authority to expedite the construction of the planned Iloilo-Guimaras Bridge.
The politiko made this statement even as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is now taking action to put the project in high gear.
“It is beneficial to the growth, development and progress of the entire province and city of Iloilo and Panay island and Guimaras island in general,” Defensor stressed.
DPWH Secretary Mark Villar earlier said that they were already conducting a feasibility study for the project and they are hoping to bid for the project by next year.
“It will boost production, development, growth not only in Iloilo but also in Guimaras,” he added.
