Fort Bonifacio War Tunnel eyed for development as "heritage site"

Published: Sep 28, 2012 - 9:00am
ABS-CBNNews.com reports that the Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA) is eyeing the Fort Bonifacio War Tunnel—which is located underneath C-5, on the eastern portion of Bonifacio Global City in Taguig—for development. According to the BCDA, it could become a "heritage site." The report noted that the tunnel is "30 meters deep and 2.24 kilometers" and has "32 built-in chambers and two passable exits, one leading to Barangay Pembo and the other to Barangay East Rembo."

According to the report, the tunnel, which was first dug up in 1936, "was intended to serve as a stockroom during World War II, and was used to transport supplies" and that "most of the workers employed in the digging were Igorots from Baguio."

The report also quoted BCDA president and chief executive officer Arnel Casanova, who said, "We may tap the private sector for the project. There is a need to preserve the heritage and promote the history that once played a vital role in regaining our freedom and democracy."
