Awesome Philippine Government Projects You Need to Check Out

In an effort to make the Philippines more competent and to serve the needs of its people, past and present administrations undertook a series of projects that would ensure better quality of life for countless Filipinos. We’ve previously discussed how our government has been keen in improving the economic climate and overall financial situations in the country, by improving access to financing, be it with or without collateral, or be it for professionals like doctors or not (even for OFWs) – and now, know that the government has also been initiating a slew of infrastructure projects, some of which are listed below.

Baggao Water Supply Project

The Baggao Water Supply Project is spearheaded by the municipality of Baggao in an effort to provide Level 3 water supply to its 24 barangays. Scope of this initiative includes construction of water supply facilities, installation of necessary equipment, and future capacity augmentation, among others. The entire project will cost around Php 84 million, and it’s expected to be completed on September 2020.

San Ramon Newport Project

Currently under development, the San Ramon Newport Project aims to improve Zamboanga City’s Special Economic Zone and Freeport Authority, as well as establish it as a world-class economic zone. Project scope includes construction, operation, and maintenance of a seaport that will be built in the First Industrial Park of ZamboEcozone.

Sual Coal-Fired Thermal Power Plant Project

Implemented by the National Power Corporation (NPC), the Sual Coal-Fired Thermal Power Plant Project aimed to build a 1000-MW Coal-Fired Thermal Power Station in Sual, Pangasinan. The station was also equipped with two 500-MW generators, and it continues to provide power to countless people to this day.

Automatic Fare Collection System

Operational as of December 16, 2015, the Department of Transportation’s (DOTr) Automatic Fare Collection System project helped integrate the Beep Card™ technology with LRT Lines 1 and 2, and MRT Line 3. This not only decommissioned the old and problematic magnetic-based ticketing system, but it also managed to improve fare collection services. The project managed to centralize the train systems’ back office as well, allowing it to more effectively apportion revenues.

Camarines Sur Expressway Project (San Fernando-Pili Section)

The Camarines Sur Expressway Project aims to build a 16-kilometer highway that will make the eastern and southern municipalities of Camarines Sur more accessible by land. The initiative was undertaken in response to the growing difficulties of passing through the Philippine Pan Highway, which is experiencing heavy congestion in recent years. The project intends to provide an alternative route to motorists, as well as help them cut travel time.

Final Thoughts

These are just some of the projects undertaken by the Philippine government. With the Philippines being considered an emerging market and a newly industrialized country, you should expect them to come up with other awesome projects in the future.
