• New Bohol Airport construction starts in May


    TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol: Japanese engineering giants Chiyoda and Mitsubishi are targeting to proceed with the actual civil works on the New Bohol Airport in Panglao next month and complete it by 2017. The Mitsubishi-Chiyoda Joint Venture, the main contractor, finalized the timeframe during the first stakeholders’ coordination meeting here last week presided by Gov. Edgar Chatto pf Bohol. During the meeting, Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) Director for Project Management Services Cielo de Eulin noted the details of the preparation to ensure no hitches once the actual implementation starts. While the New Bohol Airport has been designed as an ecology-friendly airport, it will give the province a terminal of international standard that can accommodate one million passengers a year. An expansion area has also been considered, based on lesson learned from the Tagbilaran City Airport that has limited space for expansion.
