ILOILO City – Panay Electric Company (PECO) has relocated more than half of its electric poles affected by massive road-widening projects of the Department of Public Works and Highways in the city.

Of the 248 target poles, 138 have been transferred as of Nov. 30, according to Engr. Randy Pastolero, assistant vice president for operations.

Pastolero said the poles included 24 69-kilovolt poles, 133 primary poles and 91 secondary poles.

“There are only 110 poles remaining,” Pastolero wrote Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog.

The PECO official clarified the 248 poles did not include the more than 300 along Sen. Benigno Aquino Jr. Avenue (Diversion Road) and other areas in the metro removed and replaced from 2013 to the first half of 2016.

Pastolero said the relocation of the remaining poles is ongoing.

He asked the city government’s assistance, specifically in managing traffic along work areas, to “reduce the inconvenience [the work] may cause to commuters and consumers.”/PN
