CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO – The City Gov­ern­ment of San Fer­nando through its City Agri­cul­ture and Vet­eri­nary Of­fice (CAVO) in part­ner­ship with the Na­tional Meat In­spec­tion Ser­vice (NMIS) on Mon­day held the first mar­ket sum­mit in line with the cel­e­bra­tion of the 18th city­hood char­ter an­niver­sary or Ka­gana­pan at the mini con­ven­tion cen­ter of Heroes Hall here.

CAVO Vet­eri­nar­ian Dr. Ryan Paul “Doc Poy” Man­la­paz said that the event aims to train par­tic­i­pants on the proper han­dling and main­te­nance and hy­giene of meat s.

Butch­ers in slaugh­ter­houses, chicken dressers, meat ven­dors, and deal­ers from the pub­lic mar­ket of City of San Fer­nando were the par­tic­i­pants in the sum­mit.

The re­source speak­ers were all from the NMIS namely Act­ing Di­rec­tor II Dr. Ed­uardo Oblena, Meat Stan­dard De­vel­op­ment and Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion Sec­tion Head

de­liv­ery of goods as cargo trucks will have 24/ 7 di­rect ac­cess from the port area to the prov­inces in north­ern Lu­zon and vice versa via the NLEX.

With this al­ter­na­tive route, trav­el­ers from Manila to Cen­tral and North Lu­zon may have shorter travel time as they can head straight to the NLEX by­pass­ing EDSA and the Bal­intawak Toll Plaza,Vil­lar pointed out, adding that the next phase of this project is the 2.6-km sec­tion from C3 Road, Caloocan City to R10, Navotas City.

Vil­lar was in­stru­men­tal in the ac­cel­er­a­tion of the project con­struc­tion ac­tiv­i­ties when he formed a task force to speed up the de­liv­ery of right-of-way for this vi­tal in­fra­struc­ture which not only aims to ad­dress traf­fic prob­lems but also gen­er­ate mas­sive in­vest­ments to boost the econ­omy.

To en­sure the NLEX Har­bor Link Seg­ment 10s im­me­di­ate com­ple­tion, he also ini­ti­ated sev­eral site in­spec­tions and co­or­di­na­tion meet­ings to ramp up the progress of this traf­fic de­con­ges­tion project.

NLEX Cor­po­ra­tion Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager Luigi Bautista cited that the com­pany’s part­ner­ship with the gov­ern­ment helped ac­cel­er­ate the con­struc­tion of the project, not­ing that the team was able to do in two to three months the works that could have been ac­com­plished in five to six months.

Bautista also said that the NLEX Har­bor Link Seg­ment 10 is seen to bring more op­por­tu­ni­ties in nearby com­mu­ni­ties and prov­inces.

Along with the full open­ing of the NLEX Har­bor Link Seg­ment 10 is the par­tial open­ing of the new Caloocan In­ter­change — the fourth gate­way of NLEX to Metro Manila, af­ter Bal­intawak, Min­danao Av­enue, and Karuhatan.

The new Caloocan In­ter­change serves as the point where the NLEX Har­bor Link Seg­ment 10, the C3R-10 sec­tion, and the NLEX Con­nec­tor will con­verge. This junc­tion is lo­cated along the PNR tracks in 5thAv­enue/C3 Road in Caloocan City.
