The detailed engineering design (DED) for the proposed Laguna Lakeshore Road Network Project (LLRN) will start in December 2021, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

DPWH on November 22 signed the consultant’s services contract for the DED of the LLRN project phase 1, a new road network on the western side of the Laguna Lake that will connect Lower Bicutan, Taguig City and Calamba City, Laguna with a main alignment of 37.60 kilometers (km).

The contract parties include the joint venture of CTI Engineering International (CTII) Co., Ltd.; Chodai Co., Ltd.; Oriental Consultants Global Co., Ltd.; and Nippon Engineering Consultants Co., Ltd.

DPWH said the joint venture ranked first in the procurement for the DED consultancy last August 25.

The LLRN project is expected to strengthen road transport efficiency in Metro Manila and neighboring regions and provide added opportunities to stakeholders.

Under the contract agreement amounting P135.485 million, the DED will be carried out for 15 months between December 2021 and February 2023.

The DED will be funded by additional financing from the Asian Development Bank’s Infrastructure Preparation and Innovation Facility under a loan.

The LLRN project was approved by the National Economic and Development Authority-Investment Coordination Committee (NEDA-ICC) Technical Board on March 17, 2021, and by the NEDA ICC-Cabinet Committee on September 27, 2021. The project was approved by the NEDA Board through an Ad Referendum on October 18, 2021.

The LLRN project phase 1 will have a main alignment of 37.60 km and include eight interchanges in Sucat, Alabang, Tunasan, San Pedro/Binan, Santa Rosa, Cabuyao, and Calamba.

The two-lane primary road consists of an 11.80 km viaduct from Lower Bicutan to Muntinlupa, and a 25.80 km combination of onshore viaduct and embankment from Muntinlupa to Calamba.

The project will also consider the planned developments introduced by various local government units along its proposed alignment.

It will also feature an additional one lane in each direction from Sucat, Muntinlupa to Sta. Rosa, Laguna, and a cycling track and promenade from Tunasan, Muntinlupa to San Pedro, Laguna.
