Davao del Norte Provincial Governor Rodolfo Del Rosario has asked his constituents to prepare for the opening of Davao del Norte-Bukidnon Road which he envisions to spin economic activities and create economic opportunities.
In an interview with the media (Mar. 02) at the Tahanan ng Gobernador, Del Rosario expected that the completion of the national road passing through the town of Talaingod will push through by next year.
“When that (would be) materialized I cannot imagine the activity that will happen here in our province. I am encouraging our people in Davao del Norte to prepare because a lot of business opportunities will come about due to this highway,” he said.
The P1.5 billion Talaingod(Davao del Norte)- Bukidnon Road is a 58-kilometer large-scale infrastructure project of the national government that is expected to trigger economic activities between the two provinces particularly along the areas it traverses.
It is considered as an important section of the Philippine-Japan Friendship Highway traversing Butuan City to Davao City and that of the Sayre Highway along Valencia City in Bukidnon going to Cagayan de Oro City.
