Low-cost housing for Bataan workers pushed

BALANGA CITY, Philippines – The municipal government of Limay in Bataan is planning to develop some 100 hectares of property in Barangay Duale for a low-cost housing project for workers of Limay and Mariveles towns.

The municipal government is reportedly faced with housing problems due to the influx of technical and construction workers, Limay Mayor Lilver Roque told The STAR on Friday.

Roque said the workers were tapped for the expansion of the Bataan Refinery Corp., the largest oil refinery in the country, and the construction of San Miguel Global’s coal-fired plant that would generate some 900 megawatts of electricity.

He said Bataan Gov. Albert Raymond Garcia is looking for a housing site not far from the workers’ job site.

Mariveles and Limay have been identified by foreign and local investors as ideal sites for industrial, manufacturing and commercial establishments, Roque  said. 

The mayor is working with urban planners to ensure that the industrial firms would not affect the environment and livelihood of residents.
