MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Friday inaugurated the P25.2 billion Improving Growth Corridors in Mindanao Road Sector Project (IGCMRSP) in the Zamboanga Peninsula.


The road project was built through a loan from the Asian Development Bank (ADB). 


“We will continue to build roads, bridges, ports, and airports all over the country [to] bring Filipinos closer together,” Marcos said.

The IGCMRSP was approved during the Duterte administration.

It includes constructing and improving 151.60 kilometers of roads and 34 bridges with a total length of 3,374.87 linear meters in the Zamboanga Peninsula and Tawi-Tawi province.

However, Marcos said the project has since been expanded to include additional roads. 

“Let us build upon this achievement as we continue the unending work of building structures that will bring a better life and an invigorating future for all our fellow Filipinos,” he said.

According to the Palace, completed core projects in Mindanao include the Alicia-Malangas Road, Tampilisan-Sandayong Road, and Lutiman-Guicam-Olutanga Road.

Ongoing projects include R.T. Lim-Siocon Road, Guicam Bridge, Curuan-Sibuco Road, Siay-Gapol Road, and Gutalac-Baliguian Road.
