TACLOBAN CITY– The construction of the shore protection project along the Old Road, Sagkahan District, this city, is now near completion.
This was announced by Engr. Johnny Acosta, head of the Tacloban City District Engineering Office.
The P474.35 million worth project aims to protect the villages located along the shore protection project of possible storm surges, and coastal erosion, among others.
The Sagkahan district was one of the areas in the city that was hard hit when Super Typhoon ‘Yolanda’ hit the city a decade ago.
The shore protection project spans 446.80 linear meters and is now at 74.99% completion, the office said on its report.
This accomplishment is within the 269 calendar days of its supposed completion.
“The construction of the shore protection project is a testament to our commitment to building a resilient city. We are working diligently to complete this project, which will not only protect our coastline but also contribute to the overall development and safety of Tacloban City,” Acosta said.
