NAVAL, Biliran (BDEO) – 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 resource-based processing.
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.
