Road projects to hasten travel in Cordi provinces

>> Saturday, July 29, 2017

BAGUIO CITY -- Two high-impact projects for the Cordillera are up for implementation to boost development under the national government’s “Build, Build, Build” program The BLISTT (Baguio City and Benguet towns– La Trinidad, Itogon, Sablan, Tuba and Tublay).
The Outer Ring Circumferential Road will improve road access between Baguio and nearby Benguet towns while the Apayao-Ilocos Norte Road will serve as a gateway to the Cordillera from the Ilocos Region through Laoag City to boost tourism and economic activities.
 The BLISTT Outer Ring Circumferential Road will have seven sections and a total length of 81.827 kilometers of national and local roads.
The project, worth almost P4.8 billion, will connect BLISTT to all national roads leading to Baguio City and other Cordillera provinces.
 The bypass road will help ease heavy traffic in Baguio City especially during peak season as this will serve as alternate route for motorists going to nearby Benguet towns.
The new road network will boost tourism and invigorate trade within Cordillera and its neighboring provinces.
 Part of the project is covered by the DOT—DPWH tourism infrastructure development convergence program.
The “Build, Build, Build” program, the DPWH said, allocates higher spending on high-impact infrastructure projects expected to boost the economy and alleviate poverty.
