Aquino vows completion of Asuncion-Laak road

DAVAO CITY — President Benigno Aquino III has assured the completion of the 40-kilometer Asuncion, Davao del Norte-Laak, Compostela Valley Road before his term ends in 2016.

Rep. Anthony del Rosario (1st district, Davao del Norte) said the President personally told him he wants to see the project completed before he steps down in the next presidential election.

“The President wants to see that road finished when he retires in 2016,” del Rosario told local officials at the third outreach of the Davao del Norte Convergence for Peace and Development in Igangon, San Isidro.

He said the National Government is releasing this year another P70 million for the Asuncion-Laak Road, in addition to the P95 million provided last year for the up-leveling and concreting of the road, which passes through Barangay Igangon.

Del Rosario also bared that more nationally funded projects are in the pipeline in his district, to include the electrification of yet unlighted remote areas and the development of local tourism sites.

He said some P38 million is appropriated for the rural electrification program in the province, which is also included in the National Government’s list of tourism development priorities, where billions of pesos will be poured in to improve access going to tourist destinations.
