Pinakamahabang tulay sa PH itatayo sa Visayas

By: - 09/09/2018

NANANAWAGAN ang mga kongresista mula sa Visayas sa gobyerno na simulan na ang pagpapatayo ng Panay-Guimaras-Negros island bridge na bubura sa rekord ng San Juanico bridge bilang pinakamahabang tulay sa bansa.

Sa isang pahayag na inilabas ng Visayan bloc at pirmado nina Negros Occidental Rep. Albee Benitez at Iloilo Rep. Jerry Trenas ang 14.3 kilometrong Panay-Guimaras link ay matatapos sa 2021, isang taon bago bumaba si Pangulong Duterte sa termino.

Ang phase 2 naman na Guimaras-Negros bridge na may habang 5.7 kilometro ay maaari namang simulan bago ang huling taon ng Pangulo sa Malacanang.

“The project shall improve transportation connectivity and efficiency and promote regional economies by way of enhancing productivity, attracting investments and generating more revenues for localities in the region,” saad ng pahayag ng Visayan bloc.

May plano rin para sa phase 3 ng tulay na mag-uugnay naman ng Negros sa Cebu.

“We believe that Region 6 has so much potentials for tourism and economic opportunities that can be maximized through the creation of accessory infrastructures such as the Panay-Guimaras-Negros bridge that will enhance connectivity within the region.”
