NAVAL, Biliran –
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)- Biliran District
Engineering Office (BDEO) recently completes the P29M road
concreting project in Naval town in support of food and
The completed project
located in Imelda village in Naval town is seen to ease the burden
of farmers in transporting their goods and agricultural products to
the market centers.
Found along this newly
constructed road are several agricultural crops such as coconuts,
corns, rice grains, cassavas and bananas.
According to David P.
Adongay Jr., before the realization of this project, the said site
can only be accessed by foot and products are transported through
carabao, even motorcycles can hardly pass.
“Due to absence of road,
supply of farm products to market centers are limited which in
return less opportunity for the farmers to earn more,” said Adongay.
Constructed with a two
lane road with a total length of 1.170-kilometer, Adongay said that
the completed road concreting project will provide a wider, safer
and fast mobility of the farmers’ harvest, thereby increasing their
production and income.
Adongay also revealed that
the said project leads to an undeveloped waterfall in Imelda village
called Matin-aw Falls. From the old route taking almost an hour,
travelling time is reduced to only 10-20 minutes walking time.
DPWH-Biliran DEO continues
to implement high impact priority projects under the Duterte
Administration with the goal to make roads passable, bridges long
lasting, and shorter travel time.
