M Butuan City Polysports Complex to rise soon
BUTUAN CITY – The ground works for the 252, 939, 664.26 Butuan Polysports Complex (BPC) went into high gear at Barangay Tiniwisan, in this premier and capital city of Butuan in Northeastern Mindanao (Caraga region).
Once completed, the BPC will house the state- of-the-art oval, stadium and gym and other amenities for sports complex needs. It can also host big international and national games.
According to updated status of ground works from the City Engineers Office (CEO) the completed infrastructures include a rubberized oval and grass football field, a stadium without a sunshade and a gym which has a common wall with the stadium.
For the continuation of ground works this year, the city government has allotted 25-million supplemental budget for the development of the polysports complex.
This supplemental budget will be used for the construction of an access road, providing synthetic flooring, basketball court glass, goal, scoreboard and other project amenities.
Currently, the CEO is conducting a deficiency listing and what the contractor needs to complete the project.
“We are hitting our timeline here,” said Butuan City Engineer Lorden G. Vismanos.
In another development, farmers in Surigao del Sur started to plant rice anew after typhoon “Seniang” caused widespread damage to farmlands in that province on December 29, 2014.
In a statement, the provincial agriculturist office in Surigao del Sur, said 1,372 bags of palay seeds had been initially distributed to affected rice farmers as “quick response rehabilitation” for them to get back on their feet as quickly as possible.
