Japanese Embassy optimistic on economic contribution of road project in Bulacan
The Japanese government has expressed belief that its funded road project in Bulacan would contribute in the economic and social development in the area and nearby Metro Manila.
In a statement Tuesday, the Japanese Embassy cited the inauguration ceremony of the Phase 2 of the Plaridel Bypass Road Project and groundbreaking ceremony of Phase 3 in Bulacan recently.
Minister Keiichi Ishii of Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), together with Ambassador Koji Haneda, Secretary Mark Villar of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and Secretary Arthur Tugade of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) attended the ceremony.
The Embassy said the project centers on the construction of a bypass road around the city of Plaridel, which is a bottleneck for transportation and logistics as it connects Metro Manila and northern suburban cities.
“Expanding the achievements of the project’s phase 1 (also funded by Japan’s ODA in FY2002), phases 2 & 3 are expected to contribute in the economic and social development of Metro Manila and towns located in the northern suburbs by alleviating serious traffic congestion and enhancing transportation capacity and efficiency,” it said.
