DPWH targets completion of 3 flagship projects in Zamboanga in 2022


The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said Friday that civil works for three Asian Development Bank (ADB)-funded road projects in Zamboanga are now in the advanced stages of completion.

The “completion of the 68.78-kilometer core road projects under ADBs ‘Improving Growth Corridors in Mindanao Road Sector Project’ will be achieved by first half of 2022,” the department said in a statement.

The road projects being accelerated include the 15.35-kilometer Tampilisan-Sandayong Road with three bridges in Zamboanga Del Norte.

Road projects located in Zamboanga Sibugay Province include the 23.43-kilometer Alicia-Malangas Road with eight bridges and the 29.70-kilometer Lutiman-Guicam-Olutanga Road.

The department recently completed 1.5 kilometers of roads in Labason, Zamboanga del Norte.

“Road networks that will help improve the mobilization of agricultural products from farms to bigger market hubs are important infrastructure in rural areas that will further increase socio-economic activities,” the department said in a separate statement.

“These projects will help reduce travel time and road maintenance cost, while providing more livelihood opportunities to the locals,” it added.

The government also announced in September the completion of the upgraded Zamboanga International Airport, to accommodate flights to and from Southeast Asian destinations. – Arjay L. Balinbin
