MARAWI CITY (PIA)–The essentiality of the infrastructure development within the city and the province of Lanao del Sur is seen to be a critical component of the Marawi rehabilitation.
Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) Secretary and Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM) Chairman Eduardo Del Rosario stressed that apart from any project, this should also be recognized as this plays a significant role.
“Part of the development is the infrastructure development na kailangan natin pagtuunan ng pansin [that we need to give attention] to ensure that it will provide the necessary services to the people of Marawi City and the outlying municipalities in Lanao del Sur,” he said.
With the visible progress of the laid infrastructure efforts under the Marawi Recovery, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Program, Del Rosario once again guaranteed the completion of all projects for its beneficiaries.
“I would like to assure everybody that Task Force Bangon Marawi with the support of the provincial and city government will always work together so that we can ensure the completion of all the projects for the benefit of the Maranao people,” he said.
Meanwhile, Del Rosario conveyed the advancement of the city following the recent inauguration of Lilod Guimba Bridge Wednesday, June 23.
“This will ensure the progress of Marawi City. Ito ay isa sa mga pangako ng pangulo [This is one of the promises of the president] who said that he will see to it that Marawi will rise as a prosperous city again,” he said.
Traversing the Brgy. Kurmatan and Matampay road, the Lilod Guimba Bridge implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is expected to aid the issue on traffic congestion in the city and cut the journey time of travelers passing through the first district of Lanao del Sur, specifically the Basak area, Lanao del Norte and towards Iligan City.
The TFBM chief also recognized the construction of Marawi-Pantar road as he stated that they have already coordinated with the DPWH district for the budget for the completion of the three-kilometer Pantar junction networking Lanao del Sur and Lanao del Norte. (CRG/PIA-10/ICIC Lanao del Sur)
