RDC OKs construction of Pulilan-Baliuag Diversion Road
PALAYAN CITY, Nueva Ecija-Regional Development Council (RDC) has passed a resolution favorably endorsing the construction of the P660 million, 10-kilometer Pulilan-Baliuag Diversion Road in a bid to boost the potentials of Bulacan’s emerging agri-industrial area.
It has a width of 20 meters as well as a 2.80-meter, two-lane bridge and drainage with Tibag, Pulilan serving as entry point and Makinabang/Pinagbarilan in Baliuag as exit point.
“The strategic location of Pulilan along the confluence of North Luzon Expressway and Cagayan Valley Road has made vehicle traffic a major issue specifically multi-national companies and factories located in the northern part of the municipality where trucks coming from the central business district (CBD) cause heavy traffic and delays in delivery of goods and services. This road is expected to address the matter,” RDC Vice Chair and National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Regional Director Severino Santos said.
RDC 3 is the highest policy-making body in Central Luzon and serves as the counterpart of the NEDA Board at the subnational level.
It is the primary institution that coordinates and sets the direction of all economic and social development efforts in the region and serves as a forum where local efforts can be related and integrated with national development activities.
Council members include all governors, city mayors, municipal mayors of capital towns, presidents of municipal mayors’ league, regional directors of national government agencies and representatives from the private sector. (Carlo Lorenzo J. Datu)
