The first-termer congressman of the Lone District of Biliran said that some 20 kilometers of the more than 152 kilometers Biliran circumferential road have already been completed.
“It’s only approximately 4 kilometers of unpaved road of the Biliran circumferential road are up for completion, hopefully in 2013”, he said
Data from the DPWH-Biliran revealed that the remaining 4.6 kilometers of unpaved road of the Biliran circumferential road is located at the Cabucgayan-Caibiran section.
