Tuesday, February 19, 2019

Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark A. Villar announced that a faster and better road connection between Bukidnon and Misamis Oriental is about to be completed as DPWH is almost done with the paving of the Kibawe-Kadingilan-Kalilangan (KKK) Road in Bukidnon, Northern Mindanao.

“DPWH Regional Office 10, under the leadership of Regional Director Zenaida Tan, undertook the improvement of the 53.4-kilometer national road that forms a loop with the Maramag-Pangantukan-Kalilangan Road to Sayre Highway via Municipality of Kadingilan,” said DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar.

The two hours travel time from the municipality of Kibawe to the municipality of Kalilangan will be reduced to one (1) hour once the KKK Road is fully completed.

Under the 2018 General Appropriations Act (GAA), a total of P101-million was allocated for the last phase of the road project which covers road paving and stone masonry of 2.287-kilometer road section along the national road that is envisioned to strengthen the Cagayan de Oro-Bukidnon Link.

Eight (8) bridges along the entire road length were also included in the project, namely: Malatipay Bridge, Manubiray Bridge, Kiorayag Bridge, Mig-asa Bridge, Kidangin Bridge, Ukitan Bridge, Mulita Bridge, and Apolang Bridge.

“With the completion of KKK Road, we expect to increase not just the economic activity in Region 10 but also to provide unhampered access to the thousands of motorists traversing the network,” added Secretary Villar.
