Armm rushes completion of infra projects-A A +A
Friday, August 1, 2014
THE Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (Armm) is speeding up the implementation of infrastructure projects to ensure its completion within the year or by the first quarter of 2015.
Armm Governor Mujiv Hataman said these include the completion of the circumferential roads in Basilan and in Lake Lanao in Lanao del Sur.
President Benigno Simeon Aquino, III highlighted the Basilan circumferential road in his latest State of the Nation Address (Sona) citing the project will “soon be completed.”
Hataman said that about 10 to 12 kilometers portion of the Basilan circumferential remained unpaved. It was not known as to what is the status of the Lake Lanao circumferential road.
Hataman said a portion of the Basilan circumferential road concreting was funded through the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP).
However, Hataman quickly clarified “it was already completed” when some of the DAP provisions were declared unconstitutional.
Hataman has met with concerned Armm officials and contractors and discussed ways to accelerate the completion of the infrastructure projects. (Bong Garcia)
