account_balanceMandaluyong chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Mandaluyong City is set to open a new city jail soon that will help decongest its existing detention facilities, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways.

The new jail facility, according to Public Works and Highways-National Capital Region Director Ador Canlas, is being strategically built beside the offices of the Philippine National Police (PNP), Bureau of Fire Protection, and Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) in the city government complex in Maysilo Circle, Mandaluyong City.

It is a 9,873.45 square meter facility, Canlas said, noting that the construction is now being fast-tracked to meet the April 2020 deadline.

“Upon completion, the nine-storey correctional facility is expected to decongest the now densely-populated Mandaluyong City Jail as it can accommodate up to 5,000 inmates,” Canlas said.

The regional director added that the construction of the jail facility, including the office spaces for BJMP and PNP branch services, is implemented in two phases and is set for completion on April 2020 at a cost of P429 million.

The department’s Metro Manila First District Engineering Office will also implement the third phase of the project which involves the installation of jail automation security and building automation funded under the 2020 General Appropriations Act (GAA).

“Aside from paving roads and bridges, DPWH is also building better institutional facilities such as protective services aimed to improve lives of all Filipinos,” Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar said.
