by Lito Dar

BAGUIO CITY, Jan. 18 (PIA) -- “Rest assured that we, your representatives in Congress, are doing our best to complete the road networks in North Philippines especially here in Cordillera.”

This was said by Mountain Province Congressman Maximo Dalog Sr., chairman of Congress’ Special Committee North Luzon Growth Quadrangle (NLGQA), during the recent Regional Tourism Congress spearheaded by the Department of Tourism.

According to Dalog, it is the mission of the government that by 2013, all primary roads here in Cordillera shall have been paved and all secondary roads to follow by 2016.

Dalog said North Luzon lawmakers or the so called ‘Solid North’ in Congress are all united in pushing for the development of Northern Philippines. He explained that North Quad has jurisdiction on matters, policies and programs concerning the development of municipalities, cities, provinces and other local communities in the North Luzon area, as well as other actions to promote growth and expand avenues of economic cooperation.

“One matter that North Quad has been taking up relates to the infrastructure support program of the government particularly to support the development of the area, including the tourism sector,” Dalog stressed.

He reported that one infra project they are currently monitoring is the TPLEX or the Tarlac-Pangasinan- La Union expressway, which will connect the North Luzon Expressways from Tarlac City up Rosario, La Union right in the mouth of Kennon road under phase 1. The project’s phase II will extend the expressway farther north up to Bacnotan, La Union.

The project, if completed, will boost tourism promotion in the north Luzon area.

Some of the North Quad completed projects reported by Dalog is the cementing of road from Tagudin, Ilocos Sur to Cervantes and the Baguio – Ambuklao – Aritao road.

For on-going projects, Dalog reported the concreting of roads from the boundary of Mountain Province with that of Ilocos Sur up to Bontoc, Mountain Province which they hope to be finished this 2012, and the other route that would connect Mountain Province to Cervantes, Ilocos Sur by 2013.

Dalog called on all the tourism congress participants to support the government in such endeavor. “Let us continue to support one another and help each other make Cordillera the number one tourist destination in this part of the country, ” Dalog said. (JDP/LD-PIA CAR)
