The construction of the P6-billion bridge that will connect Davao City to the Island Garden City of Samal (AGaCoS) has been strongly indorsed by Davao del Norte Governor Rodolfo del Rosario.
Del Rosario said he has already moved for a full blown feasibility study and detailed engineering as first phase in the implementation of the 1.2-kilometer bridge.
The Regional Development 11 (RDC-11) has approved the project, which will be implemented under the public- private-partnership (PPP) infrastructure projects.
The RDC-11’s Advisory Committee (AdCom) added the megaproject’s feasibility study into the P69.43-billion budgetary requirement for priority projects in Davao Region next year.
“It is high time to continue this big ticket project that was first proposed 12 years ago,” Del Rosario stressed.
He recalled that a pre-feasibility analysis on the project was done in 2002 within the framework of the Davao Integrated Development Program (DIDP) Master Plan.
He emphasized that the bridge will link up and will provide tremendous trade returns and tourism prospects to the island, which is included in the country’s master plan for tourism development.
