DPWH orders repair, replacement of collapsed Naga City revetment

CANAMAN, Camarines Sur, November 8, 2016 (Bicol Standard)—Amidst public uproar on the collapse of parts of the Naga River revetment project, Engr. Rebecca Roces of the Camarines Sur 2nd Engineering District told the BICOL STANDARD that she ordered the contractor to replace the eroded portion, including the other parts that show cracks.

Roces said that as early as Sunday morning, she already sent inspectors to examine the extent of the damage.

Said inspectors, according to Roces, confirmed that there are other areas that are damaged.

“A little over 200 meters are subject for replacement, apart from the 55 meters that collapsed,” she said.

She added that she talked to the contractor, who promised to make the repair as soon as possible.

The contractor, she confirmed, is wholly cooperative with the DPWH.

The contractor asked for some time for the equipment to be transported to the area.

Roces said that one of the triggers of the collapse was the construction of the Sto. Nino Memorial Park fence, which possibly resulted to the accumulation of water runoff that later seeped into the portion that brought about the collapse of parts of the revetment.

She said, however, that a thorough inspection is underway to remedy the problem. The expenses would be shouldered entirely by the contractor, she said.

Furthermore, Roces assured the public that the agency is paying close attention to the concern.
