CALBAYOG CITY – As part of the Build Build Build program of the present administration, the Department of Public Works and Highways -Samar First District Engineering Office completes the construction of the 2-kilometer road portion connecting Gandara and Matuguinao.

This project is beneficial to more or less 34,000 residents of the municipalities of Gandara and Matuguinao. It provides easier, safer and smoother access from Gandara to Matuguinao since the road gets muddy during rainy seasons.

“The long-time dream of our people to be connected to the growth centers of Samar has finally come true. This concrete road has a great impact to daily lives of the residents because they no longer have to travel in the muddy road, now they can easily transport the agricultural products in a convenient way,” said Inan Torres, a resident of the village of Pizarro in Matuguinao.

This project portion has an appropriation of P70 million and is under contract with B. Vicencio Construction. It was completed on February 18, 2018.
