Kasikas: Duaw Park/DPWH River Dike

The river dike boundary has finally cut through a large chunk of Du-aw Park, and it seems that city hall might have to make do with the smaller space left for development. There’s an upside though, as the river wall is designed to be higher than the current soil filling, which will make a good river view for future plans. This will also assure that the park will be safe from future floods as the wall will absorb and slow down the impact of strong water currents.

The river dike starts from the existing structure at the Cathedral, and will continue all the way to the edge of City Hall.

Near city hall, workers are installing beams for supporting the wall:
