DPWH USec Pacanan inspects infra projects in hometown Motiong

June 26, 2012

CATBALOGAN CITY  –  Undersecretary Jaime Pacanan of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) inspected and graced the opening of the newly rehabilitated Old National Road Motiong, Samar on June 19.

According to Motiong Mayor Francis Langi the first phase of the project is worth P11 M but an additional P9.6 M will be poured in to complete the rehabilitation of the road.

The old road serviced Daang Maharlika in the past, before the construction of the diversion road, such that it suffered the usual wear and tear.

Pacanan in his talk to his hometown folks said that some P17 M is also allotted to a flood control project which Municipal Engineer Dindo Conge called the Baywatch Project.

Old roads in the towns of Hinabangan and Paranas have been completed, Pacanan added, so that he also has to ensure that his hometown Motiong will have the same rehabilitation project for the old road.

On June 19, Motiong folks led by Mayor Langi, DPWH Samar Second Engineering District Officials Ruben de los Reyes, Construction Chief Nestor Mate and other Motiong folks witnessed the ribbon cutting of their ‘paisano’ USec Pacanan. (with report from DPWH and Engr D Conge)
