The construction of road networks in the war-torn city of Marawi is in its final stages of completion, the Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM) reported on Saturday.

In a statement, TFBM chairperson and housing czar, Secretary Eduardo del Rosario said he is satisfied with the “progression of the massive rehabilitation efforts” in the city.

Del Rosario noted that the ongoing rehabilitation work slowed down slightly due to inclement weather in the city in the past four months.

He remained optimistic that despite such challenges, the government would be able to meet its target timeline for several projects before the end of the term of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“I am certain that we can finish at least 95 percent of all major infra projects by June 2022, and I can assure everyone that the few remaining projects will surely be completed because they are already funded and for implementation by the concerned agencies,” del Rosario said.

He said more projects are up for completion this month.

“I am very satisfied with what I saw. I thank the implementing agencies for your hard work to meet your deadline despite the numerous challenges,” he added.

Del Rosario met with Marawi City Mayor Majul Gandamra on December 2 to conduct onsite inspections on the rehabilitation works.

According to the TFBM, the construction of the Marawi City Jail is more than 90 percent complete.

The reconstruction of Rizal Park and the establishment of the School of Living Traditions and Marawi Museum within the most-affected area (MAA), formerly called ground zero, are also nearing completion.

The construction of a Bulk Water Facility, that will supply about five million liters of potable water for the residents of MAA, is also underway.

Among the ongoing constructions inspected are the Marawi Integrated School buildings; Marawi slaughterhouse; Barangay Raya Madaya 1 Complex with a health station and a madrasah; and the permanent shelter projects in barangays Patani and Kilala.

The TFBM was created under Administrative Order 3 issued by Duterte on June 28, 2017, after the declaration of the government’s triumph against terrorist groups.

The task force has been directed to facilitate the rehabilitation, recovery, and reconstruction efforts in Marawi and help displaced families recover from the tragedy brought by the May 2017 siege. (PNA)
