Pasig-Marikina channel

Minister Keiichi Ishii of Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), Ambassador Koji Haneda and Public Works Secretary Mark Villar recently attended the inauguration ceremony of the Pasig-Marikina River Channel Improvement Project Phase 3 in Pasig City.  At the ceremony (inset), Secretary Villar expressed his gratitude to the Japanese government and said he is looking forward to Japan’s continued support for Phase 4 of the project. As a coastal lowland area, Metro Manila has suffered from serious flood damage. This project completed major works such as construction of revetment with river wall, dredging and construction of dikes by utilizing Japan’s disaster prevention technology at the Pasig-Marikina River. Combined with the project’s phase 1, where detailed designs of the following projects were developed, and its phase 2, which implemented 16.4 km of river improvement works, phase 3 of the project is expected to contribute to flood damage mitigation and sustainable urban economic development of the National Capital Region.
