12 Biggest Infrastructure Projects of the Duterte Admin in 2020

The Duterte administration will roll out this year 2020 some of the most ambitious projects in the Philippines after the economic managers of Pres. Rody Duterte approved for endorsement to NEDA a total of 12 major infrastructure projects worth P626.11 billion.

According to the National Economic and development Authority (NEDA) Board, one of the projects approved by the Investment Coordination Committee (ICC) is the bridge that would connect the two provinces in Luzon, the Bataan-Cavite Interlink Bridge that would connect the provinces and possibly the historic island of Corregidor.

The highly anticipated infrastructure project, Bataan Interlink Bridge is estimated to be 28 kilometers long, which will be considered as the country's longest bridge after completion. When compared to the current longest bridge in the Philippines, the San Juanico Bridge only spans a total length of 2.16 kilometers, connecting the provinces of Samar and Leyte in the Visayas Region.

Based upon some reports from infrastructure experts, the bridge which is planned to be high enough for larges ships to pass is expected to be finished in the year 2025, or three years after Pres. Rody Duterte's terms ends in 2022.

Aside from the bridge projects, there are some reports and claims by some officials that the government may also build an underwater tunnel to connect the two major provinces in Luzon. The said project will be financed through official development assistance (ODA) according to reports.
