P46-M Pasig infra project was supposed to be made with old materials but Vico Sotto stepped in. Here’s the result
Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto proved delays in the completion of infrastructure projects isn’t necessarily a bad thing as he inaugurated the new multi-purpose building built in Ugong.
Photos shared by Sotto on Facebook on Tuesday, April 5, showed the building’s spacious and well-lit interior.
Chronicling the 12th day of his campaign, Sotto said the contract for the P46.6-million project was awarded before he assumed office in 2019.
Construction, however, didn’t proceed as scheduled.
“Pero bukod sa covid, nagka-delay ang konstruksyon dahil pinabago natin ang ‘program of work’ para masolusyunan ang ibang mga isyu,” Sotto shared.
“Yung isang isyu, lumang materyales ng lumang building daw ang gagamitin para sa bubong. Pinapalitan natin ito, at napagawa natin ang building na bagong materyales na ang ginagamit,” he added.
Thanks to Sotto’s prudence, the building’s quality improved even as its cost remained the same.
