PIA Press Release

Two Davao Norte big-ticket projects bared

by RG Alama

Davao City (23 January) -- Former Davao del Norte Governor Rodolfo del Rosario who is currently part of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's cabinet as the Adviser on New Government Centers said there are two big-ticket infrastructure projects in Davao del Norte which have been appropriated with funds for its implementation.

Guesting in a press conference held following the State-of-the-Municipality Address in Kapalong last Jan. 19, Sec. del Rosario said the two mega-projects are the Talaingod- Bukidnon road which was allocated P1.2 billion and the Saug River Development Project which was appropriated P700 million.

The Talaingod-Bukidnon road involves the concreting of the existing dirt road network and the opening of new roads that will finally connect Municipality of San Fernando in Bukidnon and Talaingod in Davao del Norte.

Del Rosario said the initial phase of the project which is the concreting of the road from the circumferential road to the town center in Santo Nino will be implemented this 2007.

Del Rosario said during his tenure as the provincial governor he worked for the conversion of the road to Talaingod from a provincial road to a national road, which is why the national government is funding the upgrading of the existing road network. The Talaingod-Bukidnon road project he says would be implemented until 2010.

The Saug river development project Del Rosario said was allocated about P700 million, this entails putting up a catchment dam in Saug river which would solve perennial flooding in the area. The water in the dam would then be used to irrigate 8,000 hectares of farmlands and the water could also be used for hydro-electric power and also a source of drinking water.

According to Sec. Del Rosario the two projects are part of the supra-region development blueprint for the Mindanao mega-region cluster designed to spur economic opportunities in the region. (PIA XI) [top]
