CALBAYOG CITY –
With the completion of phase-2 construction of a 6.10-meter-wide
concrete pavement, motorists can now conveniently pass through the
Nalihugan-Rawis road in Gandara, Samar.
Beforehand, there was only
a narrow and bumpy trail between the neighboring barangays. The
residents of Barangay Rawis and the succeeding barangays had to take
a boat trip along Gandara River to reach the Gandara Poblacion.
The works included
concreting of a total length of 723 meters.
This project is part of
the local infrastructure program of DPWH Samar First District
Engineering Office (SFDEO), which aims to increase access and
connectivity in the district.
The DEO has also recently
completed the construction of a road linking barangays Sto. Niño,
Sidmon and Macugo, which is directly connected to the
Gandara-Matuguinao Road. Another road construction project linking
barangays Rawis and Burabod in the same municipality is already
nearing its completion.
