Prolonged agony with Davao’s flooded roads

Duterte said construction of the project will be delayed because of problems on securing land clearance for portions of the project that pass though private property.

“It is my fault. I take full responsibility,” he said Sunday at the “Gikan sa Masa, Para sa Masa” (From the masses, to the masses) television program of the city government aired over ABS-CBN Davao.

But Duterte warned land owners of expropriation starting next month. He said the process will take long. Read the rest of the report here.
