This was revealed by Governor Abet S Garcia who said that the SBMA board has finally given priority to the said project that will make travel time faster and safer to motorists travelling from SBMA to nearby Morong town.
During a recent meeting held at the office of the governor, private developer Engr. Joel Alegre, president and chief executive officer of United Power Systems Phil., Inc. (UPSPI), a Manila-based firm, offered the installation of state-of-the-art electrical gadgets such as road lights, flood and air monitoring devices, among others.
“The road widening of SBMA backdoor to Morong will further reduce travel time and fast track economic growth in Morong and Bataan itself,” pointed out Garcia, saying “dati-dati, kelangan pang huminto ang isang sasakyan pag may kasalubong dahil masikip ang kalsada doon.”
He added that 70 percent of SBMA total land area belongs to Bataan.
Said road widening will connect Morong to the Bagac-Mariveles bypass road, a pet project initiated by the governor, whose road concreting is now almost finished.
Aside from offering hi-tech road lights and electrical gadgets, Engr. Alegre is also developing a 142 hectares of lot in Morong into a world-class mountain resort hotel, with condominiums, Central Business District, golf course, among others, which he calls Amanterra.
“A new city will soon rise in Morong once Amanterra is fully developed, and this will be patronized by the public due to its unique view, and free from pollution,” Alegre told Garcia.
Morong is host to the multi-billion Anvaya beach resort and hotel owned by the Ayalas and the Bataan Technology Park, Inc.
