Description

The Marikina-Infanta Road Project commences at the junction of Sumulong Highway in Masinag, Antipolo City traversing the rugged terrain of Sierra Madre mountain range until it terminates at the intersection of Famy – Infanta Road (See Figure A). The areas traversed by the road project contain vast tracts of land, wide forest, abundant water sources and beautiful scenic spots. The road acts as a stimulus in the development of production areas and access to markets of produce particularly for agriculture, mining, logging, forestry and fishing. It also aims to provide infrastructure support to tourism in the coastal road network (region and project area).

 

The Study covers the period from pre-implementation before 2007 and post implementation after 2007 up to 2015 (prior to the collapse of the Querocep Bridge). The Impact Study Team developed six hypotheses:

  1. Hypothesis on relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of the road project;

  2. Hypothesis on the improvement of quality of life, accessibility and mobility;

  3. Hypothesis on the improvement of household socio-economic indicators;

  4. Hypothesis on improvement of fiscal position of the local government;

  5. Hypothesis on the impact of the project on the environment.

  6. Hypothesis on the impact of the project on sustainability
