Caloocan gov’t allots P125M for road repairs, street lights
Road repairs and the installation of street lights are high on the Caloocan City government’s priority.
The city has allotted over P125 million for infrastructure projects, including the improvement of roads and pathways, installation of street lights, improvement of drainage systems and the construction of multipurpose halls and barangay (village) halls this year.
Of the projects, the repair of P. Jacinto Street in Barangay 165 and the installation of street lights on Boni Serrano and 6th Avenue received the biggest allocation.
“We continue to strive in making our city not only business-friendly but also fit and safe [for] Caloocan residents,” Mayor Oscar Malapitan said in a statement.
“We want [the city] to be disaster-prepared and flood-free,” he added.
A total of 164 infrastructure projects were completed by the city government last year.
