AFTER seeing good results in the first phase of the Davao Light and Power Company's (DLPC) underground cabling, City Councilor Danilo Dayanghirang sought to expand the project in surrounding downtown areas. On Tuesday's regular session at the City Council, Dayanghirang expressed his desire to start the second phase of the project. "Nakita natin na it is a really good project and I would like to see more of it here," Dayanghirang said. Dayanghirang added he would like to pass an ordinance soon. City Engineers Office (CEO) has also been pushing for the second phase of the underground distribution system project of DLPC in the city. Following the completion of the first phase of the underground cabling project last March, which covered the vicinity of City Hall up to the City Council building, CEO Chief lawyer Joey Felizarta said his office is ready to start the second wave of wireless cabling once an ordinance is passed. Felizarta said the ordinance is necessary to hasten the development and implementation of the project. With this, it urges various telecommunication companies to abide the undertaking led by DLPC. "Yan ata yong palaging pina follow-up ng Davao Light na magawa na yong ordinance kasi kailangan natin ng ordinance para everybody will cooperate including different agencies involved," Felizarta said during the Kapehan sa Dabaw on Monday, September26, at the SM City-Annex Davao. The first phase of the project cost around P108 million.
