CALBAYOG CITY The
Department of Public Works and Highways Samar First District
Engineering Office completes the P49.9 million project covering the
construction of 7,800 square meters of slope protection structures
along 293 meters of road section along Calbayog - Catarman Road in
Brgy. Jose Roņo, Calbayog City.
These structures are
designed to prevent abrupt collapse of weakened slopes in cases of
heavy rainfall and earthquakes because they help retain the slopes
The general travelling
public directly benefits from this project as it allows for a safer
travel environment. It also provides the residents of Brgy. Jose
Roņo with the necessary protection from harsh road slope disasters.
I live here in Brgy. Jose
Roņo and I usually travel from here to work. And this road is very
difficult to navigate because of the endless curves that lead to
deep ravines. Its good to know that DPWH is developing safer roads
for motorists like me, said Ariel Cinco.
