Because of this, District Head Engineer Rebecca Roces said her office decided not to approve the collection of NFH Construction, the winning project contractor.
According to the filed report, the pipes that were supposed to be used as railings were not the ones used. The ones in actuality were much thinner.
The project was inaugurated in Septemnber and cost Fifty million pesos.
A long crack appeared on the barricade, and a 55-meter portion of the barricade–that’s almost 200 feet–collapsed.
The DPWH has aired its concern over the project.
The revetment is 5,670 meters long and runs along Barangays Dayangdang to Penafrancia.
The railings cost 2 million pesos.
