Siargao Airport upgrade incomplete

An airport improvement project in Siargao Island has been inspected by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo but the incomplete facility failed to undergo flight tests.

Eyed to be opened before the Arroyo administration exits on June 30, the P152-million Sayak airport upgrade is broken down into P92 million for rehabilitation works and the rest to be spent for building a 7.4-kilometer road leading to the new airport which Mrs. Arroyo inaugurated during her visit on May 14.

Some facilities of the airport, specifically the airport terminal building and the flight service station, have yet to be completed, reports from local media indicate.

The airport’s runway was extended to accommodate larger aircraft while the apron, turnaround pad, security fence and parking area were also improved. The project is on the Super Regions Program list promised by Mrs. Arroyo to complete before her term ends.
