DAVAO LIGHT AND POWER CO., INC. (Davao Light), an AboitizPower distribution unit, has completed underground cabling activities along C.M. Recto Street in Davao City, from the intersection with San Pedro Street to the intersection with Ramon Magsaysay Avenue.
This is the city’s second underground cabling project, following the first, which was completed in 2016 around Davao City Hall and the Sangguniang Panlungsod in accordance with City Ordinance 0177-14, Series of 2014.
This is an effort to improve customer service while also strengthening the power distribution network’s resilience and reliability.
The first of five phases of the project is the underground cabling in C.M. Recto Street, which began in 2018.
The second phase, which runs from City Hall Drive to the corner of Quirino Avenue, is currently at a 27 percent completion rate, with civil construction such as manhole installation and pipe laying still ongoing.
Davao Light and other telecommunications companies are working closely together to ensure that the project is completed efficiently and quickly.
The City Government of Davao’s underground cabling plan, as mandated by City Ordinance 0152-17, Series of 2017, requires all telecommunication companies, Davao Light, and all other persons to comply.
According to the plan, the portion of San Pedro Street, Magsaysay Avenue, and Quirino Avenue will be the next streets to be covered by the Underground Cabling Project.
