Bongbong Marcos explains the Paranaque Spillway Plan
In the 1970 series of typhoons, the late President Ferdinand Marcos installs systems to prevent a recurrence of the devastating floods. He aims to avoid urban sprawl and builds a system of sluice gates and spillways. This is to quickly divert floodwaters from the city. Therefore, the country needs Bongbong Marcos to realize the visions of his father for the Filipinos.
Urban planner, Felino Palafox helps design the flood-control projects and policies in the 1970s for President Marcos. It would largely prevent the devastation of a Typhoon Ondoy-like calamity. It struck Manila on Sept. 26, 2009. The ill-effects last for months in the form of disease and mass dislocation of Manila’s unfortunate ones. So, Bongbong Marcos vows to continue and improve such initiatives.
Imelda Marcos’ Batasan Project
On the other hand, Bongbong Marcos also added his mother’s Batasan Project. The aim is to have a center for government services. The location is safe from floods. The site is also at the center of Quezon City. Thus, making it accessible to government employees and the public alike. A visionary leader is therefore what the Philippines need.
