In the Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (DCCCII) during their 50th anniversary celebration held last week at the SMX Convention Center, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III said that in the near future, the Duterte administration will begin implementation of a number of “Build, Build, Build” projects in the Davao region such as the:

• the first phase of the Mindanao Railway Project, consisting of the Tagum-Davao-Digos Segment that will be 102 kilometers long with a design speed of 160 kilometers per hour. The segment is expected to be operational by 2021;
• the Davao Expressway Project, which involves the construction of an approximately 60-kilometer expressway from Bukidnon-Davao National Highway in Davao City to Digos-Sultan Kudarat Road, traversing the towns of Toril and Santa Cruz;
• the Asbang Small Reservoir Irrigation Project, which involves the construction of a reservoir dam and irrigation systems in Matanao, Davao del Sur; and
• the Davao City Bypass Road, which is a 44.6-kilometer road with a 2.28-kilometer tunnel that is expected to be completed by 2022. It will reduce travel time from Barangay J.P. Laurel in Panabo City to Barangay Sirawan in Davao City to only 49 minutes from the current 1 hour and 44 minutes.
