The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) has allotted P11.8 billion for the construction of several infrastructure projects in the Ilocos region.
The NEDA Ilocos office has unveiled on April 17 the plan to build flood control projects, roads and airports in Pangasinan province this year under the Regional Development Investment Program.
NEDA Ilocos Director Nelso Rillon noted the two flood control projects worth P8.8 billion will be located in districts 3 and 6.
He said the flood control projects are the Lower Agno River Irrigation System Improvement Project in Rosales, Sto. Tomas, Alcala and Bautista; and the Allied Rivers Improvement Project in Dagupan, Calasiao and Sta. Barbara.
For the Lingayen Airport, the government has earmarked P11.3 million; P2 million for the Rosales Airport; and P2.9 billion for five road constructions in districts 2, 4, 5 and 6.
“These are road projects in Mangatarem- Sta. Cruz Zambales road; Lingayen By-Pass road; Rosario- San Fabian By-Pass road; Urdaneta City By- Pass road and Pangasinan- Nueva Vizcaya road,” said Rillon.
He said the projects would be implemented by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, National Irrigation Authority, and the Department of Public Works and Highways.
