Full Rehabilitation of Kennon Road among priority projects of Marcos Admin

Cordillera - The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has identified Kennon road as among the priority public-private partnership (PPP) projects for implementation under the administration of Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.

Over the weekend, the Marcos admin has bared numerous PPP projects that will be implemented including new Cebu and Nueva Ecija Expressway.

According the DPWH, a total of Php12.45 Billion will be allocated for the Rehabilitation/Reconstruction/Improvement, Operation and Maintenance of Kennon Road, one of the major route to Baguio City and Benguet Province.

Meanwhile, Benguet Congressman Eric Yap was thanked Marcos for the inclusion of Benguet major road in his priority projects.

“We thank our President Bongbong Marcos for heeding our call to prioritize Benguet, particularly the rehabilitation of Kennon Road. Hindi tayo binobola noong sinabi niya noong kampanya na he will help our province," said Yap in a statement.

"This upcoming project will spur growth, it will boost our tourism activities in Benguet, it will provide jobs, it will create economic opportunities, more than the safe passage of people traversing the Kennon Road. Maraming salamat Mahal na Pangulo,” he added.

Cordillera - Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar has announced that the final segment of the 88.85 kilometer-Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX) will be opened to motorists by July 15. 

Secretary Villar said that the completion and opening of the 11-kilometer Pozorrubio, Pangasinan to Rosario, La Union Section was seen to drastically reduce travel time from Tarlac to Rosario by an hour from the current 3.5 hours. 

"With the completion of the last portion of originally designed TPLEX towards Rosario Rotunda (formerly Pugo - Rosario Road / Manila Road Junction), travelling to the Ilocos Region and Baguio city in the Cordilleras will now be easy", added Secretary Villar. 

From the Rosario rotunda, motorists bound to Baguio have three route options of taking Marcos Highway (go further to Pugo), Kennon Road, or the Asin - Nangalisan Road. 

The 24-billion (4) lane toll road project implemented by DPWH involves the design, financing, construction, operation, and maintenance by the private sector. 

San Miguel Corporation's Private Infra Dev Corporation holds the concession for TPLEX which is integrated with Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) and the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) connecting the central and northern Luzon provinces to Manila and beyond.
