NATIONAL FUNDING SOUGHT AS OLD DAVAO BRIDGE ABOUT TO COLLAPSE

The Gov. Generoso Bridge 1, one of this  city’s oldest, near Bangkerohan public market, gave way early morning Thursday prompting congestion in southbound traffic here. The Department of Public works and Highways had closed the bridge and sought for immediate funding from the national government.

Hadji Pundidato Mitmug, DPWH assistant regional director for maintenance, however, said, they might need intervention from local and Davao-based national officials for the release of P350 million fund to reconstruct the bridge. He said the bridge should have expired more than 20 years ago but there was no budget.

The Traffic Management Center has announced temporary rerouting following heavy inflow of traffic.
