Cotabato City (February 17, 2016)- Governor Mujiv Hataman of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) led the inauguration on Monday of the P12.7 million Ramain bridge in the municipality of Bubong in Lanao del Sur.
The 61.36-meter composite concrete-steel bridge has a 20-44-ton vehicle capacity and connects the city of Marawi to the municipalities of Masiu and Bubong.

The ARMM government will implement a record number of infrastructure projects this year to help uplift the economic and social condition in the region.
A total of P10 billion has been earmarked from the ARMM’s 2016 annual budget for regional infrastructure projects. The projects include 46 bridges, 14 flood control units, 54 water supply systems, 12 drainage systems, 25 seaports, 485.726 kilometers of roads and 41 other infrastructures.
