Engineering details conducted for Mlang rural airport
A team of engineers from the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) conducted initial survey of the Mlang Rural Airport last August 1, the town’s local chief executive said.
Mayor Joselito Piñol said the survey covered engineering details as to how the P160 million funds will be utilized for the completion of the long overdue airport in Mlang.
Initial survey showed that the funds would be used for the extension of the runway from 1.2-2.5 kilometers. The additional runway constructions will start on the 3rd quarter of the year, the mayor said.
DOTC engineers who visited the place said P150 million will still be needed for the construction of the control tower, fire station, and perimeter fence.
