DOTC allocates P50-M for Iloilo Airport fence

PIA Press Release. 06/19/07

Iloilo City (19 June) -- A week after the inauguration of the new Iloilo airport of international standards, Senator Franklin Drilon said there is a necessity to install a perimeter fence on the access road from the airport.

Drilon who administered the oath-taking of re-elected Iloilo Governor Niel Tupas and other elected officials of the province said in his speech that he noticed the new airport lacks a perimeter fence on the access road from the airport and referred the matter to Department of Transportation and Communications Secretary (DOTC) Leandro Mendoza.

Drilon reported that Mendoza immediately approved a P50 million allocation for the perimeter fence and the lighting on the street going to the airport so that people can enjoy better the airport that we have today.

    I have heard a lot of comments from Ilongos that it is scary to go home because of the location of the new airport. They said that there are NPA in Cabatuan and sorrounding areas. How could we assure the people from outside of the country that the new airport is safe. I would be nice to know that we could arrive at the airport and reach our distination safely.
