Zamboanga Peninsula (Region IX)

As of 2018, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) IX was able to build 56.49 km of national roads along the priority corridors, widened with complete features to 4 lanes, which is 9.16 km short of the target of 65.65 km. A total of 24.05 km of new roads were constructed to close gaps in the national road network which is 4.78 km or 16.58% less than the total target of 28.83 km.

Northern Mindanao (Region X)

Coming from Cagayan de Oro City going east, the road networks will lead to Bukidnon and eastern part of Misamis Oriental up to its chartered city of Gingoog. From Cagayan de Oro going westward the road networks will lead to western part of Misamis Oriental, Iligan City, Province of Lanao del Norte, Marawi City, Lanao del Sur,  Zamboanga City and its northern part road network going to Dipolog City.  Challenges on this road network are damaged bridges cause by natural calamities.  Additional development and construction of new bridges and road widening are underway to lessen the travel time in going to other regions. The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is the lead government agency for road repairs and widening to cope with the growing economy in Region X and its adjacent Regions of IX and Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-tawi (BASULTA) provinces. 

Davao Region (Region XI)

Davao Region Road Network. Source: Davao Regional Land Use Committee

The road system of Davao Region is comprised of national and local road networks connecting the regional center externally and internally, particularly the provincial capitals and strategic destinations in the region.

As of December 2013, the total national road network of Davao Region was 1,662.37 kilometers or 18 percent of the total national road network of Mindanao. Among the provinces/cities, Davao Oriental had the longest national road network and paved surface road length with 431.66 kilometers and 350.55 kilometers, respectively, while Digos City had the shortest length with 24.03 kilometers. In terms of the proportion of paved roads to total length of national roads, the cities of Digos, Panabo, IGACOS and Tagum posted the highest percentage with 100% of their national roads already paved, whereas Davao del Sur had the lowest pavement ratio with 44%.

The Road Inventory and Road Condition Survey conducted by DPWH in 2013 revealed that 61 percent of the national road network in the region (1,017.76 kilometers) was in good or fair condition. On the other hand, roads in poor condition had a total length of 268.03 kilometers while those in bad condition had a total length of 211.47 kilometers.

Currently, high traffic volumes are seen along the Region’s major thoroughfares, particularly along the Tagum-Panabo-Davao City-Digos corridor. The volume-capacity ratio (VCR) is the basis being used by DPWH in considering road sections to be widened, at a threshold of more than 0.5. As of CY 2013, 73 km of national roads in the Region had VCR of more than 0.5, with 72 km experiencing moderate to heavy traffic flow, and about 1 km in Davao City already with saturation traffic volumes. However, widening in these sections is contingent to the availability of road right-of-way. Traffic congestion is expected to worsen in the coming years due to population growth, increasing urbanization and heightened economic activities. Other options may have to be considered, such as the opening/upgrading to high standard highways and establishment of mass transit systems.

SOCCSKSARGEN (Region XII)

Image AddedImage Added

The region recognizes the importance of improving the transportation sector to support its rapid and inclusive economic growth. Prudent strategies were pursued and strategic projects were implemented to accelerate the development of the sector’s safe, reliable, cost-effective, and sustainable infrastructure facilities to ensure the efficient transport of people and products. Adhering to the policy of full transparency and accountability to its people, the region engaged the general public to participate in the governance, monitoring and feedback in the implementation of infrastructure projects. The implementation of strategic road projects has enhanced the accessibility to production areas, major tourism destinations and basic service facilities like schools, hospitals, and attracted investments to the region. In terms of providing an integrated transport terminal in urban centers in the region, Koronadal City has an ongoing construction of an Integrated Transport Terminal project.

Status of Road Networks in Region XII as of Dec 2016

Challenges and Obstacles

  1. Deteriorating road networks and absence of roads leading to productive and critical areas, especially in the interior areas.
  2. Increasing flow of people and products has started traffic flow in some part of the region’s road networks.
  3. Increasing use of energy-efficient and cheaper modes of transportation, such as bicycles and motorcycles that compete with the increasing larger vehicle traffic along the region’s major thoroughfares.
  4. Lack of road signage and road safety structures in required sections of roads, particularly along accident prone areas.
  5. Inadequate seaport and airport facilities that downscale their competitiveness to attract and handle more domestic and international passenger and cargo traffic.
  6. No strict enforcement of anti-overloading law and lack of weigh bridges along arterial/national roads.
