DPWH UNDERTAKES TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT IN CENTRAL MINDANAO

Top 

  About 96 percent of the concreting works for the more than 36 kilometers Maguindanao/Sultan Kudarat Boundary-Lebak-Kalamansig Road in Central Mindanao has been completed. Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio L. Singson said that this major development on the transport infrastructure in the provinces of Maguindanao and Sultan Kudarat reduces travel from two (2) hours to about one (1) hour. The project involves the portland concrete cement paving of highway 6.70 meter wide and construction of two (2) reinforced concrete deck girder bridges and one (1) pre-stressed concrete deck girder bridge with a total length of 41.26 lineal meters. DPWH Undersecretary Rafael C. Yabut, Project Implementation Officer for Official Development Assistance-funded projects, said that financing for this project costing P764.658 Million was funded through a loan agreement between the Philippine Government and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). Also financed by JICA is the on-going rehabilitation and reconstruction of the 37 kilometer North Upi-Maguindanao/Sultan Kudarat Boundary Road which is 62 percent completed. Costing P892.399 Million, the project involves concrete paving of existing 27.7 kilometer gravel road and rehabilitation of about 4.6 kilometer concrete road while about 5.9 kilometer portion has been exempted from the rehabilitation works due to good road condition. Assistant Secretary for Project Management Office Emil K. Sadain said that these two (2) on-going projects under the implementation of the DPWH Rural Roads Network Development Project-Project Management Office (DPWH-RRNDP-PMO) form part of the 105 kilometer Awang-Upi-Lebak-Kalamansig Road or Central Mindanao Road Project. Earlier, the improvement of the 30.18 kilometer Jct. Awang-North Upi Road from the junction of Cotabato-Koronadal Road was completed in the amount of P566 Million under financing of the national government (Government of the Philippines) and with DPWH Region 12 implementing the project. Secretary Singson said that aside from reduced transportation cost, enhanced social service delivery and job creation, the development of Central Mindanao Roads will give boost to the President Benigno S. Aquino III administration’s program for peace and development.
