Surigao-Davao Coastal Road to be finished this June

Butuan City (17 February) -- The P6.9-billion Surigao-Davao Coastal Road (SDCR) project is 98 percent complete and will be operational by June 2010.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo yesterday visited the Lingig-Boston boundary of SDCR which she wants completed before she steps down from office this year.

"We will finish it on schedule, Madam President, on or before June 30," Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Region 13 Director Evelyn Barrozo told the President the following day during a project briefing.

Once completed, the World Bank-funded SCDR will link the provinces of Surigao Del Norte, Surigao Del Sur, and Davao Del Norte. Considered one of the President's legacy projects, the road network will reduce by half or to four hours the travel time from Surigao del Sur in CARAGA to the port of Davao.

SCDR is also part of government's program to build Mindanao as the country's agribusiness super region.

Announced in the President's 2006 State of the Nation Address (SONA), five super regions were identified to maximize the country's strengths in agriculture and agribusiness, information technology, and tourism.

To date, work on the 437.75-kilometer SDCR is almost finished. Finishing work on the following road network sections are ongoing:

  • Package 3 Tandag-Marihatag,
  • Package 4 Unaban-Sumo-Sumo,
  • Package 5 Aras-Asan-Marihatag,
  • Package 6 Salvacion-Lianga,
  • Package 7 Lianga-Barobo,
  • Package 8 Cortes-Buenavista,
  • Package 12 Tagbina-Hinatuan,
  • Package 13 Tagasaka-Bislig,
  • Package 14 Bislig-Lingig, and
  • Package 15 Lingig-Boundary Boston (Davao Oriental).
