Normin’s RPMC inspects Buk’n airport, ELCAC major projects

MALAYBALAY CITY, Bukidnon (PIA)—Northern Mindanao’s Regional Project Monitoring Committee (RPMC) visited Bukidnon to check closely the status of the local and national government priority projects implemented in the province.  

The monitoring team visited the 149-hectare Airport Development Project at Barangay Maraymaray in Don Carlos town to inspect the 1,500-meter by 30-meter runway construction and the embankment’s solid foundation concreting. The runway is set to be completed by 20 December 2022, but the passenger terminal building, taxiway, apron, and access roads are well underway and are expected to be completed by 2026.

Similarly, the team checked the region’s four major infrastructure projects funded by the Department of the Interior and Local Government’s (DILG) Support to Barangay Development Program (SBDP) namely Cabanglasan-San Fernando Alternate Road; Access Road Leading to Bukidnon Airport; Maramag Maradugao Road-Junction Lampanusan Road; and the Bukidnon–Davao City Road. The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)-10 is now speeding up the construction of these bypass roads, including the Pulangi Bridge that will connect the towns of Don Carlos and Quezon, via Barangay Kiburiao of Quezon, this province.

The SBDP is a DILG flagship program and an offshoot of Executive Order No. 70 that institutionalizes the whole-of-nation approach to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC).

The team also kept tabs on Phase 3 of Central Mindanao University’s Administration Building Extension and Phase 5 of the University Hospital’s expansion and development. The hospital’s Phase 5 is 75 percent complete and the Administration Building’s construction activities planned as part of the ‘program of works’ has been completed.

The June 27–30 ocular visit is a component of RPMC-10’s second quarter 2022 monitoring, which aims to hasten the projects.

Meanwhile, as the government deals with improving the quality and accessibility of the region’s technology entrepreneurship, the RPMC-10 visited the Technology for Education, Employment, Entrepreneurs, and Economic Development (Tech4ED) Center in Valencia City and the Digital Transformation Center in Maramag town.

Students, women, senior citizens, out-of-school youths, and indigenous people can use these centers as information hubs to develop new skills, conduct research, and access government online services. The centers are currently used to provide digital literacy training, as well as other government online services. (NEDA-10/PIA-10/Bukidnon)
