DPW Deputy Director Felix Benavente says the Department of Interior and other local money funds the project. Benavente says the station will receive a renovated bathroom and an open pavilion where bus drivers will wait for their next run. Benavente says that the original station was constructed by bus drivers and the station will receive it’s first makeover in 15 years. Buses from this station will service Machanaonao Elementary, Sanchez, FB Middle, Upi Elementary and DL Perez.

 

Speaking at the groundbreaking Governor Eddie Baza Calvo said, “Collaboratively with DPW working with the department of education. We’ve built more schools, renovated classrooms, right now we are in the midst of negotiations for a fairly large, actually 100-million dollars in renovations and upgrades to our school starting with Simon Sanchez and moving to GW. With this this substation work we plan to have all substations by, well long before the end of this administration.”

 

Benavente says the project will take 120 days to complete.
