During the inauguration of Ylanan Road, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar announced the start of the construction of the UP Diliman Road Network Improvement.
“The UP Diliman Road Network Improvement involves the construction of 12 roads within the campus. This include the streets of Ylanan, Roces, Laurel, Archery, R.P. De Guzman, E. Jacinto, E. De Los Santos, Pardo De Tavera, Africa, Quirino Ma. Guerrero and the Rotunda,” DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said
“The opening of the recently completed Ylanan Road provides students, motorists from C.P. Garcia and Katipunan access to Commonwealth Ave without having to go to Quezon City Circle,” he added.
During the same event, Villar, together with UP President Danilo Concepcion, his wife Atty. Gaby Concepcion, and former UP President Alfredo Pascual held groundbreaking ceremonies for Jacinto road, a 826 meter access road from CP Garcia.
“When completed, an improved Jacinto Road would provide better access to UP Diliman, Katipunan, CP Garcia and Commonwealth Avenue”, Villar said.
"The UP Diliman Road Network Improvement is the first step towards our goal of providing our students the best facilities. We look forward to a strong partnership with DPWH in executing an ambitious blueprint for UP," Danilo Concepcion noted.
