It’s about time that Davao will go underground electric-cable wiring all through out downtown streets of the city. The head guy at the Davao power company says it will cost Php100 Million. He continues it will increase a cent per kilowatt hour of our electricity bill here. It will be good for the city to have that cable hidden. Hopefully it will be done quicker. Gosh, I’m not looking for the traffic congestion again.
Really if those wires were really hidden underground it definitely be a better sight to look at. As it is right now, the wiring’s were just looking so messy and pretty much an eye sore. A few years ago I had a nice picture (I’ts a picture of a nice building) that I shared here on LIP when we used to have the photoblog. The picture was really nice and I didn’t noticed the electricity wiring until a reader comment on it. She said “Feyma the scenery is pretty awesome except for that ugly wiring)”. I guess I was just used to it that I didn’t think about it. I’m really excited for the project to get done. I’m just not looking forward to the traffic and the delay. The area that they’re working on are the route that I will be passing through on my way to the other part of the city. So it’s going to be an interesting and long travel. I guess I will just have to put a lot of books on my phone or I will bring along with me my kindle. Reading time folks. 😉
The main places that they will cover for the project were Uyanguren, Claveria and San Pedro. I think it’s wise to have these 3 areas to have the underground electricity cable for a start, being the most foot traffic in the city. So many vendors and shoppers in that area. I’m one of them sometimes. LOL. Really that’s almost all the locations for our business related stuff. To buy our products, shipment for one of our online business. The banks that I usually go to also were near there. Other places that they need to have the underground so badly are Bajada, McArthur Boulevard and Quimpo.
They said the project will start next month in time for Kadayawan Festival. I can’t imagine the traffic then during the festival. More streets will be closing for sure. I know during the festival they closed up so many streets in the city. How much more then when the construction starts and in time for the festivities. Too many people will not be a happy camper then. I’m glad in my household none of us are into going to those activities. It’s just to hot and just to many people. We just stay home and watch the activities on TV. 🙂
I just hope that it will be done quickly. We’ve been fighting heavy traffic now. If from Matina area to downtown, going through Bankerohan and going through Quimpo, both road are experiencing heavy traffic now already with the project not yet stated. How much more when the project kick in.Not so looking forward for this for sure.
I’m hoping that the next project of the city will be a light rail from Toril to Tagum. We need something to ease up traffic here in the city.
Does any of you come home for Kadayawan? Welcome and Happy Kadayawan then!
