MANILA, Philippines — Former Public Works and Highways chief Mark A. Villar on Wednesday promised to push for the inter-island “Mega Bridge” masterplan that would connect island provinces in Mindanao and Visayas to Luzon via land travel.

“We will continue to support the inter-island masterplan because we want an inter-island connectivity that every Filipino deserves. It’s about time we connect Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao via land travel,” he said.

“In our effort to improve the lives of the Filipino people, infrastructure promoting connectivity between islands should be given top priority. This will lead to legacy building bridges that would leave a mark in connecting and improving the lives of Filipino people,” added Villar, who is running for senator in the May elections.
