Gov’t working double time to complete Davao infra projects — PBBM

RESIDENT Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. highlighted on Thursday the government infrastructure projects designed to uplift the lives of residents in Davao as he recognized the huge developments in the region.

In his speech during the distribution of assistance to farmers, fisherfolk, and families in Tagum City, President Marcos said the administration is working double time to ensure residents will benefit from those projects.

“Tunay nga pong malaki [na] ang [pinagbago] ng Tagum mula noong huli kong pagbisita dito noong panahon pa noong kampanya. Naging memorable po sa akin ang Unity Caravan na iyon sapagkat napakainit po ang binigay ninyong salubong para sa amin. Kaya’t maraming, maraming salamat po,” President Marcos said.

“Kasing-init at kasing-sigasig ng ating kasalukuyang administrasyon sa pagsisikap na ipagpatuloy ang nasimulan at tiyakin na [makikinabang] ang mga mamamayan sa ating mga programa at ating mga proyekto,” he added.

Some of the projects are the Mawab-Maragusan-Caraga Road, Carmen-Tagum City Coastal Road, Tagum City Bypass Road and Mindanao Railway Project Phase. The projects are nearing completion and are expected to fast track development in the area once finished.

President Marcos also underscored the construction of the seven-storey Davao Regional Medical Center (DRMC) in Apokon, Tagum City, which is seen to bring quality healthcare and medical services in the region.

The President said the administration is also on track in finishing the New Visayas-Tulalian Farm-to-Market Road that will improve transport of agricultural products to the market.

President Marcos visited Tagum City to personally distribute PhP30 million in financial assistance to farmers and fisherfolk affected by the El Niño phenomenon. The visit is part of his program to aid the provinces of Davao de Oro, Davao del Norte and Davao Oriental.

The Chief Executive said he has ordered the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to fast track the completion of flood control projects in Davao Region.

“Pagsusumikapan natin na sa mas lalong madaling panahon ay walang Pilipinong nakalubog sa baha at sa kahirapan. Ito po ang Bagong Pilipinas,” the President said.

The chief executive said no one will be left behind under the “Bagong Pilipinas.”
