Connectivity for the residents of the provinces of Lanao del Sur and Maguindanao is expected after the completion of the Butig – Barira road, an ARMM-DPWH infrastructure project.
Located inside the forest covers of the Butig-Barira boundary, this flasgship project in Barangay Nabalawag, Barira, provides access and unveils to public and tourists the rainbow-clad Bubuludtua Falls.

This 4-year road project covers an investment of more than 200 Million, spanning a total length of 11 kilometers.
The ARMM-DPWH has funded so far a total of 7.5 kilometers section of the road, amounting to P140 Million.

Flagship Projects of Lanao del Sur 1st District Engineering Office
Concreting of Marawi – Kapai – Tagoloan Road
The concreted shortcut roads will allow residents of Lanao del Sur to now reach urban centers like Cagayan de Oro City without having the need to pass through Iligan City. With this, the usual travel hours and length will be shortened.
ARMM-DPWH, through its Lanao del Sur 1st District Engineering Office, aims to aid both locals and visitors that are travelling from Marawi to Cagayan de Oro by reducing 1.5 hours from the usual 3.5 hours .These projects that started from 2014 and will be finished by 2018 are approximately worth one Billion and cover more than 40 kilometers of road length.
Farmers and constituents of both Lanao del Sur and Bukidnon, provinces that are rich in agricultural lands, will also benefit from the shortcut as transporting their products to and from these areas will be easier and cheaper. As a result, more products will be transported and the locals will gain a bigger profit. ... See more
I am not a Maranao. But my close friends for the past 25 years are. Mine is an outsider’s perspective.
The main reason why I believe that Marawi and the Maranaos will bounce back better is that the wealth of the Maranao is not the structures that are now being bombed and decimated in Marawi. Their main asset is neither the structures that surround them nor their natural resource. ... See more

DPWH-ARMM, SSS inks partnership for workforce welfare promotion
“It is part of our mandate to protect them [contractual and job-order employees], it is essential that we have this institutional arrangement,” said Secretary Don Mustapha Loong of the Department of Public Works and Highways – Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (DPWH-ARMM) at the signing of Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the agency and the Social Security System (SSS) to implement the KaltaSSS Collect Program of SSS which caters the contractual and job-order employees in the government.
The KaltaSSS Collect is part of SSS’s nationwide and intensified AlkanSSSya Program which aims to provide social security protection for workers, especially the job-order and contractual employees.
The MOA signed today, June 20, 2017 at DPWH-ARMM office by Secretary Loong and SSS Division Head for Southern Mindanao II, Jove Colasito and SSS Cotabato Branch Manager, Sukarno Pendaliday, stipulates the scope, coverage and contribution of the job-order and contractual employees of DPWH-ARMM as SSS members.
The job-order and contractual employees of DPWH-ARMM signified their intention to participate in the program after SSS Cotabato held an orientation with them last June 30 regarding the benefits of being an SSS member.
According to Colasito, the “time has come that it has been realized that there are employees [in the government] that are not members of the GSIS.”
“[So] we are here to be there for you," said Colasito.
DPWH-ARMM Bureau of Services Director Danilo Ong said the “signing is very timely to provide security to our employees against sickness, disability and old age.”
Both Loong and Ong said that the welfare of the work force of the agency is most important if it is to realize its mandate of providing quality public infrastructure services in the region.
According to Pendaliday, DPWH-ARMM is the “second agency in ARMM,” to have partnered with them in implementing the KaltaSSS Collect Program; the first is DSWD-ARMM.
“Masaya kami na dumarami ang ating katropa,” said Pendaliday, who looks forward to more partnership with agencies in ARMM in implementing their programs.
He added that “social security is a human right,” and therefore should be afforded by everyone especially those who are in the lower ranks of government, quoting former president Magsaysay who said that “those who have less in life should have more in law.” ... See more
