Construction of a multi-million peso convention center and a sports complex in Baybay City, Leyte has already started, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said Friday.

The two projects, according to Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar, were among the big-ticket infrastructure projects in Leyte.

“Baybay City Convention Center Project has already commenced with an allocation of P50 million for its Phase 1. The city’s sports complex is also under Phase 1 already, which received an initial allocation of P100 million,” Villar said.

According to DPWH-Leyte Fifth District Engineer Eusebio Culas, the phase 1 of the construction of convention center and sports complex are expected to be completed by June and October 2019, respectively.

“We hope to complete these two ongoing contracts before the end of the year so we can move forward with the full completion of the projects by 2021,” Villar said.

Once completed, Baybay City Convention Center and Sports Complex will serve as bigger venues for social, religious or political gatherings and sports events for the Baybayanons.
