Taguig breaks ground for new terminal and exhibit center
The Taguig City government has started the construction of the Taguig City Science Terminal and Exhibit Center, a joint project with the Department of Science and Technology.
Taguig Rep. Lani Cayetano, who joined the groundbreaking ceremony, said the new building is expected to address traffic congestion along Gen. Santos Avenue while also serving as an exhibit center.
“Para sa ating mga taga- Taguig, katuparan ito ng matagal na nating pinapangarap na pag ginhawa ng daloy ng trapiko sa DOST gayundin ang mas maayos na kalagayan ng mga commuters,” Cayetano said.
The building will have five stories, with the first to third levels serving as a hub for public transportation.
The fourth and fifth levels will serve as service offices and Science and Technology Exhibit Center.
Cayetano said the second phase of the project would involve the construction of the multipurpose hall, DOST Science Park, outdoor sports park, a commercial center, playground/art installation, water feature and amphitheater.
“Patutunayan natin na maaaring pag-isahin ang local development plan ng ating ‘Probinsyudad’ at pagsusulong ng mga adhikain ng Department of Science and Technology,” she said.
She also thanked DOST Sec. Fortunato Dela Peña for this project that would benefit not just Taguig, but nearby areas as well.
