15 of Duterte Administration’s Flagship Projects in Photos
In what is dubbed a ‘golden age in Philippine infrastructure’, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration wants to get the country’s roads, bridges, airports and other big ticket projects done within his term — a shot in the arm for Philippine infrastructure that has been left behind by its regional peers.
Using the newly launched website www.build.gov.ph, a transparency tool that people can access to check the status of these mega-projects, the public will be made aware of how the economic blueprint through the ambitious 64 BUILD! projects translate into realization.
Here are 15 of those projects that can jump-start the Philippines into a world-class economy:
1. BGC to Ortigas Road Link Project
Guaranteed ONE HOUR from Metro Manila to Clark International Airport
7. Metro Manila Bus rapid Train system
The Metro Manila Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) – Line 1 Project spans 12.3 kilometers from Quezon Memorial Circle (QMC) to Manila City Hall via Elliptical Road, Quezon Avenue, and Espana Boulevard. It is expected to serve 291,500 passengers daily in its first year of operations.
A 25-kilometer underground mass transportation system connecting major business districts and government centers. It is expected to serve around 370,000 passengers per day in its opening year alone. The feasibility study is being conducted with the help of a grant from the Japan International Cooperation Agency.
