Infrastructure

Infrastructure is one of the vital components of development dimensions relevant to the current development concerns. This sector continues its role as support sector for social and economic development activities.

As a support sector, this is generally aimed to complement the growth and development of other sectors in order to sustain the socio-economic growth. It typically covers the broad areas of transportation, water resource, communications, flood control and drainage, power and electrification and other public works necessary to the over-all economic strategy. The infrastructure and utilities development program in the province is geared towards providing support facilities to spearhead the expansion of the province’s economic base and pave the way for the long term goal of agro-industrialization. It is also designed to improve the delivery of basic services to benefit greater number of the province’s populace.

A number of proposed major road links in the province still need to be constructed. For those existing, many would have to be rehabilitated and eventual pavement. Minor roads, such as farm to market roads need to be opened and repaired. The population, particularly in the rural areas is served by Level I or Level II water supply system. Level III or individual household connection system is generally installed in the urban areas. The province’s urban areas are serviced by the Metro Kidapawan Water District (MKWD).
