The Marawi City rehabilitation is 60-percent complete, according to Task Force Bangon Marawi chief Eduardo del Rosario.
He credited the sustained efforts of the task force’s workers saying the rehabilitation “is now more than halfway completed.”
The ongoing rebuilding process spearheaded by the task force’s 56 implementing agencies is now between 55 percent and 60 percent accomplished.
“When I was here last month, I said it was around 45-50 percent, and based on the latest presentation and our inspection [of ongoing projects], it’s now between 55 and 60 percent,” Del Rosario said.
He is the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development secretary.
He says he is expecting the road networks to be finished by the end of September after holding consultations with the project’s contractor.
“As early as last year, we have been encouraging residents, especially those residing in Sectors 1 to 3, to obtain the necessary building permits from the LGU so they can start rebuilding their respective homes,” he said.
With regard to the ongoing construction of 438 housing units in Barangay Patani, Del Rosario said, all of them would be completed by December.
