DPWH earmarks P13.6M for relocation of electric poles
by PIO release

The Department of Public works and Highways-Baguio City District Engineering Office (DPWH-BCDEO) allotted more than P13.6 million to fund the relocation of electric poles that have encroached on the road rights-of-way (ROWs) of national roads.

DPWH-BCDEO District Engineer Rene Zarate said their head office already downloaded the funds to the district office pursuant to the provisions of the joint memorandum circular that was signed by the Department of Energy and the DPWH to facilitate the speedy relocation of electric poles that are located within the ROWs of national roads.

Under the circular, the concerned electric cooperative is mandated to compute the cost of the relocation of their electric poles that are situated on ROWs of national roads and submit the same to the DPWH district office which shall provide the DOE with a copy of the computations for the latter’s reference and guidance.

Zarate said the circular also provides that the payments to be made by the DPWH will be the actual cost of the relocation less the depreciation cost of the poles.

The implementation of various infrastructure projects in the city had been delayed because of the refusal of public works contractors to pay to the Benguet Electric Cooperative the cost of the relocation of their electric poles on the ROWs of national roads.

He said that the funds will only be used for the relocation of electric poles within the ROW of national roads and it will be up to the local government unit to work out the provision of funds to relocate the electric poles that have encroached the ROW of city and barangay roads.

He said Beneco submitted to the agency the inventory of the electric poles that must be relocated.

The DPWH-BCDEO is the custodian of the funds that were downloaded by the central office for the implementation of the relocation of the Beneco poles.
