ARMM to complete road network links in 2016
OFFICIALS of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao want improvement of the region’s road network completed in time for its transformation into a Bangsamoro entity by 2016.
This surfaced during a meeting dubbed Infrastructure Convergence Committee (ICC) which was simultaneously held with a regional development plan (RDP) midterm update provincial consultation, on January 20, 2014 at Garden Orchid Hotel, Zamboanga City.
Engineer Emil Sadain, ARMM DPWH secretary, said only 179 kilometers (km.) remained unpaved out of the total 992 km. national roads. And the combined length of still unpaved provincial roads had been 1,134 km.
The DPWH-ARMM is closely working with the Regional Planning and Development Office (RPDO) and the Office of the Regional Governor in determining the varying conditions and status of the region’s road network.
The activity was attended by more than 40 participants from Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi and Lamitan City, mostly provincial planning and development coordinators, municipal planning and development coordinators, provincial engineers and DPWH-ARMM district engineers.Add a comment
