to implement P50M road reconstruction project in Maripipi town
March 14, 2019
NAVAL, Biliran –
The existing one lane concrete road at Brgy. Viga - Brgy. Agutay
section in Maripipi town will undergo road rehabilitation/
reconstruction to provide a safe riding surface to more or less
3,000 travellers along Maripipi Circumferential Road.
Department of Public Works
and Highways (DPWH) Biliran District Engineering Office has included
the prioritization of this project under FY 2019 Regular
Infrastructure Program with an appropriation amount of P50M.
David P. Adongay Jr.,
District Engineer said that the project was prioritized because of
the dilapidated state of the existing concrete pavement.
“Aside from its bad
condition, the pavement is sub-standard in width and in thickness,
thus recommended for rehabilitation,” said Adongay.
The project involves the
removal of damaged substandard concrete pavement to be replaced by a
two lane concrete pavement of 6.10 meters width, 0.28 m. thickness
with a total length of 1.5-kilometer.
According to Adongay, the
realization of the project will provide the residents of the place a
wider and safer concrete paved road as well as provide convenience
in transporting their agricultural and aquatic products to market
centers. This road also leads to some tourist sites within the town
of Maripipi, the only island municipality in the province.
