PIA Press Release
2007/09/25

Infrastructure in progress in Basilan

Manila (25 September) -- The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has released an initial amount of P50 Million for the Improvement/Rehabilitation of Basilan Circumferential Road in the province of Basilan.

The said release was made immediately upon the launching of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's "humanitarian invasion" program.

The 86-kilometer phase of the Basilan Circumferential Road Project, which is part of the 135 kilometer circumferential road of Basilan province, has a construction cost of P765 Million and is divided into 6 sections, viz: Umayam (P5M) in Maluso; Lagayas (P10M) and Camalig (P10M) in Tipo-Tipo; Tumahubong (P5M), Canas-Cabcaban-Libug-Benembengan (P10M) and Abong-Abong - Pali-Dikit (P10M) in Sumisip.

Construction activities are on-going and being undertaken by DPWH-Region IX at Umayam and Lagayas sections and by local contractors at Canas-Cabcaban-Libug-Benembengan and Abong-Abong - Pali-Dikit sections.

Meanwhile, equipment are already mobilized on site at Camalig and Tumahubong Sections and detailed engineering plans are being prepared and construction activities to be undertaken by AFP Engineering Brigade.

The project is part of the P2.2 Billion road projects programs in Mindanao, whose 51 percent of funding was loaned from the Saudi Fund for Development. Presently, 76 kilometers of the road have already been paved.

DPWH Region IX is leaving no stone unturned for the completion of the Basilan Circumferential Road to enhance the movement of goods and people in the area which is currently beset by series of on-going military operations against the Abu-Sayyaf Group that have already displaced more than 14,000 local residents.
