Marikina-Infanta Road seen to speed interchange between Metro Manila and Quezon Province

Laguna (20 February) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo ordered in 2006 the construction of the P821.40 million, 109.30 kilometer Marikina-Infanta Road System that would connect the provinces of Quezon and Rizal to Metro Manila in order to spur further economic growth.

During the groundbreaking of the project two years ago, the Chief Executive said that the Marikina-Infanta road project is one of the most important links between the towns of Quezon and Rizal to the National Capital Region (NCR). It is also considered a crucial infrastructure project that would bolster development of the northeastern towns along the Pacific Coast.

The President further said the road project would enable the province of Quezon to catch up with other provinces in the CALABARZON (Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal-Quezon) economic zone in terms of economic development.

"Para sa inyong kinabukasan ang Marikina-Infanta road na iyan para madaling magbiyahe ang mga mamumuhunan (We need the Marikina-Infanta road to speed up travel, particularly for the investors)," the President said.

The project is expected to be completed by December this year.
