In case you didn’t know it yet, construction of the Cagayan de Oro Eastern Interior Road Project which includes the city’s first tunnel has already started but Senator Panfilo ‘Ping’ Lacson is currently conducting a case study on the said project particularly on right-of-way budget allocation and payments.
As a summary, two main sections of the road project have approved right-of-way (ROW) budget as follows:
- Eastern Interior Road Section including ROW and Bridge, CDO, with P2.5 million for ROW
- Eastern Interior with Tunnel, including ROW and Bridge, with P30 million for ROW
As shown in the video below, a long stretch has already been concreted. But as per initial interview, some affected residents have not been paid compensation yet.
