PGMA leads groundbreaking rites for P1.1-billion Bulacan road network

SAN RAFAEL, Bulacan (3 February) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo led yesterday afternoon the groundbreaking of the P1.1-billion, 85.5-kilometer Third Bulacan Circumferential Road Network in Barangay Coral na Bato leading to the soon-to-be opened San Rafael Government Center here.

She was assisted in laying the time capsule for the project by Public Works and Highways Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane and Bulacan Rep. Lorna Silverio (3rd District).

Silverio said the road network would be the answer to the increased travel needs of the people in the area which has been experiencing a housing boom and heightened economic activities, including the expansion of a state university in San Rafael.

The road network is expected to bolster Bulacan's economic boom.

The road system would wrap around the six municipalities of San Miguel, San Rafael, San Ildefonso, Angat, Dona Remedios Trinidad and Norzagaray, all in the third district of the province. These municipalities comprise 64 percent of Bulacan's total land area.

The President said the road network is a major component of the 300,000 kilometers of new roads to be built under the government's road construction program. (OPS/PIA) [top]
