MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has formally opened the 1.035 kilometer Tagum City Flyover, which is expected to speed up the delivery of basic services in Mindanao.

Acting Public Works Secretary Roger Mercado recently opened the flyover—the longest flyover in Mindanao — located on one of Davao’s most strategic intersections at the Daang Maharlika (Agusan-Davao National Highway) and Surigao-Davao Road.

The intersection serves as a gateway to the northern provinces of Mindanao.

The P2.49-billion flyover will contribute to a more robust economic development not only of Tagum but also in the whole of Mindanao, Mercado said.
