JULITA, Leyte – To give a better access road to local residents, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) -Leyte Second District Engineering Office completed the road concreting project in Barangay San Andres in Julita, Leyte.

The P17.64-million project has a total length of 2.394-lane kilometer of concrete road which aims to provide safe travels and faster delivery of agricultural goods to the town proper.

“Motorists can now utilize the newly constructed road, transportation costs and travel time will be reduced. Adjacent barangays will also benefit from this project,” according to OIC-District Engineer Leo Edward Oppura.

The project was completed last June 01, 2021 under DPWH General Appropriation Act 2021 Local Infrastructure Program.
