NAIA Terminal 2 rehab nears completion: DOTr
The rehabilitation of Terminal 2 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is expected to be completed by the end of this month, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said
The DOTr said the rehabilitation project is already 98.10 percent complete and involved major architectural, functional, and operational works to enhance passenger movement for both international and domestic flights and both departure and arrival.
“Slated to be completed by the end of January this year, the rehabilitation project aims to provide the air-riding public with a much-improved service and an air travel experience,” the agency said.
In February 2019, Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) General Manager Ed Monreal said the rehabilitation project was slated to be completed by March 2020 but was delayed after the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
The rehabilitation of the NAIA Terminal 2 started in late October 2018 with a winning bid amount of P601 million to improve the whole terminal and to prepare it for the terminal realignment plan.
Villar opens Urdaneta bypass road
Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark A. Villar led other officials in the recent inauguration of the Urdaneta Bypass Road Project.
The completion of the Urdaneta ByPass Road is seen to address traffic bottlenecks during peak hours along Manila North Road in Urdaneta City and establish an improved national road system in the Province of Pangasinan.
With a total length of 7.17 kilometers, the project crosses two major road intersections of Urdaneta-Dagupan Road and Urdaneta-Manaoag Provincial Road.
The project with a total cost of P1.885 billion involved the construction of four permanent bridges that reduces travel time to 30 minutes between Villasis town proper to Binalonan.
