The Bangsamoro government has expressed support to two road network development projects to be constructed in the region by 2021.
Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao’s (BARMM) Ministry of Public Works (MPW) Assistant Secretary Danilo A. Ong said the two road projects will connect municipalities in Mindanao, which are included in the flagship infrastructure projects under President Rodrigo Duterte’s “Build, Build, Build.”
The road projects include the Sub-Project-1 or 13.9 kilometers construction of Matanog-Barira-Alamada-Libungan National Tertiary Road; and the Sub-Project-6 or the 62.6 kilometers construction of Tapian-Lebak Coastal Road.
“The transport demand in the future will play a strategic role in providing an interregional connection between Northern Mindanao for the sub-project-1 and in Southern Mindanao for the sub-project-6 and the BARMM,” said Ong.
The two projects were discussed in an Orientation Meeting of Municipal/Barangay Chief Executives and Mandatory Indigenous People’s Representatives held Tuesday, December 17, in Cotabato City.
