DPWH has began the rehabilitation of the city’s main drainage along CM Recto Avenue started last month and is progressing significantly.
As shown, the contractor has used a much bigger rectangular-shaped underground culvert system instead of the usual circular cylinder type.
Based on the billboard installed onsite, there are two contractors working simultaneously. The workers wearing green shirts belong to Jejors Construction, tasked to work on the Osmeña-Corrales section of the new drainage system. So far Jejors’ work has reached near Nazareno Church. Perhaps the other contractor, Cebu-based Venray Construction, is in-charge of the new drainage being constructed right now along CM Recto from Limketkai towards Corrales Avenue junction. This is located on the opposite side of where Jejors is working. Work of said drainage has so far affected the Limketkai-Osmeña section but drilled holes along the road are very much visible from Osmeña to Corrales Avenue.
This drainage work shown below is fronting Gaisano City. Initial info states the drainage runoffs will be divided at Corrales junction. Some will be drained towards the river while the other will be towards the bay.
A back hoe is now stationed near Gaisano City Mall along Corrales Extension. Excavation works will soon start connecting this to the ongoing drainage works along Corrales Avenue fronting Centrio Mall.
Hopefully, the drainage problem along this area will be finally solved.
