KALSADA Program launched in Bohol

TAGBILARAN CITY, Jan. 11 (PIA)--Cabinet secretaries of the Aquino administration lead the launching of the Konkreto at Ayos na Lansangan at Daan Tungo sa Pangkalahatang Kaunlaran (KALSADA) Program in Bohol on January 8, 2016.

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Sec. Rogelio Singson hands over the capsule to Bohol Gov. Edgar Chatto in a symbolic turn-over during the launching of the KALSADA Program here last Friday held at the Bohol Tropics Resort.

Together with Singson were Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Sec. Butch Abad, Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Sec. Mel Senen Sarmiento, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Sec. Dinky Soliman and Department of Health (DOH) Sec. Janette Garin.

Sec. Singson in his keynote message expressed DPWH’s commitments to improve quality and safety of national roads and bridges and increase investment in infrastructure from less than 2% of the gross domestic product in 2010 to 5% by 2016.
Meanwhile, DBM Sec. Abad said the program launch is unprecedented and historic as it demonstrates commitment of the national government to good governance initiatives which enable government to perform better in the delivery of services.

Abad added that KALSADA program is going to be one of the key interventions of inclusive development in our country.

The Budget Secretary lauded Bohol's initiatives and cited Chatto as a champion of the KALSADA program.

Patterned after the Bohol experience in local road reforms, the program also comprises aspects of good governance through local road management, rehabilitation and upgrading of provincial roads and turning over maintenance to the provincial government, development of a Provincial Road Network Development Plan (PRNDP) and establishment of city and provincial locational reference system for baseline data purposes.

KALSADA is the biggest nationally-funded project with allocation of P6.5-billion for performance-based local road projects across 73 provinces in the country. 

The program launch also featured an exhibit of the local road programs in Bohol, the launching of the new Bohol Tourism video and an update on the Domestic Fiber Optic Network (DFON) project. (ecb/PIA7-Bohol)
