“The heaviest damage are in Dalama Bridge, Daligdigan Bridge, and Pinuyak Bridge,” Villar said.

“I’ve inspected each of the affected bridge and we’re implementing a 24/7 construction schedule to ensure that the deadline set by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is met,” he underscored.

Dalama is a 27.6-meter bridge located in Munai, Lanao del Norte.

“The approach of the Dalama bridge is damaged. Actual damage cost is about 40 Million. In the long-term, we’re looking at constructing a revetment in the area,” Villar said.

Pinuyak is a 49-meter bridge in Lala, Lanao del Norte streching from Maranding to Pinuyak Alternate Road.

“We are also studying the possibility of replacing the damaged infrastructure with a permanent bridge with revetment and approaches at the upstream and downstream,” Villar said.

Daligdigan is a 49-meter bridge located at Salvador, Lanao del Norte.

“Following a 24/7 construction schedule, we set a 7-day time table for Dalama Bridge, 15 days for Daligdigan,” Villar said.

“Before January ends, all damaged bridges will be passable,” he added.
