The Department of Public Works & Highways has completed a P279.3 million slope protection project along Taguig River last January 15, 2020.
DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar said, the protective structure will help prevent flooding in the City of Taguig and Pateros since the area is prone to river overflowing during the rainy season.
Villar also added that with the speedy completion, residents can be more relieved knowing that a structure will now safeguard their lives and properties.
The project was completed within six (6) months while the slope protection project with bank improvement was implemented into several phases and subprojects situated along Taguig Bridge, M.L. Quezon Bridge, and Taguig River East and West Bank.
