In his speech in Lucena City, Duterte described the completion of the Sariaya by-pass road as “another milestone in our Build, Build, Build program”.“I commend the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and its project partners for the completion of this project,” he said.

“This achievement affirms the administration’s strong commitment to improve the quality of life of Filipinos by pursuing strategic infrastructure projects across the country, thereby improving connectivity, increasing the people’s mobility, and creating jobs, and dispersing economic activity throughout the regions,” noted the President. headtopics.com

He said the bypass road will not only provide faster and safer travel for motorists but also [allow] efficient transport of goods to and from the markets [in] Southern Luzon. “This new by-pass road is also expected to lessen the traffic volume along Daang Maharlika from Sariaya to Lucena by 40 percent.”

The Chief Executive promised a new “golden age of infrastructure” when the administration launched “Build, Build, Build” in earnest in 2017. While the construction of the infrastructure projects slowed down during the onset of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, it persisted.

“As we continue to overcome the current pandemic and carefully reopen our national and local economies, infrastructure development will play a vital role in our success. Indeed, we can fully achieve inclusive growth when the countryside development is pursued,” Duterte said. headtopics.com
