Friday, February 14, 2020

The construction of a new 4.52-kilometer concrete road leading to secluded area of Sitio Ulayanon, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon will be finished just in time for summer.

Citing a report of Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Region 10 Director Zenaida Tan, Secretary Mark A. Villar said that the P167-million Malaybalay-Gingog Road is at 89 percent completion as of February 2020.

Once completed, the concrete road traversing Gingoog City-Kalhaan, Claveria-Bulonay-Malaybalay City, will provide better access from Bulonay proper to Sitio Ulayanon.

“Some areas in Malaybalay are only accessible through limited public transport. Only light vehicles can pass through,” said Secretary Mark A. Villar.

“The new 2-lane concrete road will give convenience to new commuters and at the same time would open more opportunities for the locals in the remote area because of faster travel,” added Secretary Villar.

The Malaybalay-Gingog Road is ahead of its completion rate by 33 percent.
