By staying true to the vision of a ‘beautifully landscaped green city’, the construction of roadside urban greening and development will be implemented starting January 2021.
This is based on an initial meeting by officials from the City Mayor, City City Administrator, Planning, CENRO, City Engineering, and City Architect’s Office, together with representatives from DPWH XII, South Cotabato District Engineering Office, and South Cotabato 2nd Congressional District.
Among the highlights in their blueprints are the bike lanes, bike repair stations, and bike racks to make the main roads bike-friendly. It is known that biking is an increasingly popular hobby within the city and neighboring towns. This structural addition also aims to encourage citizens to use bikes as an eco-friendly mode of transportation, promote physical activity, and also help organize vehicles along the highway.
The roadside development will start along the road of the National Irrigation Authority up to Crossing Bo. 2, entrance to Brgy. Sto. Niño.
The project was funded with 30 million pesos from DPWH, 5 million pesos from the city government, and additional 3 million pesos from the office of Cong. Dinand Hernandez.
