GENERAL TRIAS CITY -- Cavite 6th District Rep. Luis “Jon Jon” A. Ferrer IV has recounted his priority infrastructure projects for 2020 for the benefit of the folks of this city.
Ferrer first mentioned that the riprapping of the Malabon Grande riverway from Sta. Clara to Bacao II that will pass through Barangay Vibora, San Gabriel, Dulong Bayan and Bacao I would prevent the riverbank from collapsing, especially during typhoons when the river overflows.
The diversion road from Vibora to neighboring Barangay Sta. Clara and the road widening and construction of the drainage system from Sta. Clara to Pasong Camachile I and II to Barangay Santiago (Arnaldo Highway) is also underway.
Ferrer was able to help construct new covered courts in Barangay San Francisco and Manggahan.
The new Buenavista Bridge is now open for motorists, he added.
Two new school buildings are set to finish this year: the 4-story, 16-classroom structure at Juliano Brosas Elementary School in Pasong Kawayan 1, and the 4-story, 40-classroom Luis Y. Ferrer Jr. Senior High School located in Barangay Sta. Clara, the solon said.
Workers are currently doing the Bacao I (Lavanya) to Barangay Sampalukan bypass road, Pasong Camachile II to Pasong Kawayan 1, Barangay Santiago to Buenavista II, and the San Juan - Mulawin (Tanza) Bridge to ease traffic congestion along the crossing of Tejero going to Tanza and Rosario towns, he added.
All of these infrastructure projects are in collaboration with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Cavite District Office, the congressman said.
Sta. Clara Village chairman Wally Satsatin thanked Congressman Ferrer for his project, “which will give peace to the residents of the riverside.”
Ferrer, Chairman of House Committee on Appointments, also assisted the local government led by Mayor Antonio Ferrer, Vice Mayor Morit Sison, and Councilor Jonas Labuguen in ensuring the safety of each resident to combat the threat of the coronavirus disease or COVID-19.
The lawmaker also assisted in providing financial assistance to frontliners, giving educational assistance to all qualified students to help them cope with online and modular classes, and distributed financial assistance to all private school teachers residing in General Trias.
