CALBAYOG CITY –
DPWH Samar First District Engineering Office is set to complete the
third and final phase of the road connecting the municipalities of
Gandara and Matuguinao this 2018.
This project covers the
concreting of 3.5 kilometers of road with 80 meters of slope
protection works and 1.5 kilometers of concrete lined canal. It has
an allocation of P100 million from the 2017 Payapa at Masaganang
Pamayanan (PAMANA) Fund.
Considered as one of the
two biggest rice-producing municipalities in the province, this road
will provide faster and easier transport of goods between Gandara
and Matuguinao which increases economic activity.
“Concreting of this road
is part of the District office’s multi-year programming. We started
construction back in 2014 and as of last year, we have received a
combined allocation of P270 million and over 10 kilometers of road
have been concreted,” said Project Engr. Allan Lanuza.
The District office will
soon hold a ground breaking ceremony later this month.
