DPWH IMPROVES 3 FARM ROADS IN GUIMARAS – VILLAR

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has enabled better access between local farms and market centers in Guimaras by completing three road concreting projects in various towns of the province.

Secretary Mark Villar identified newly-paved farm-to-market roads (FMR) as the P9.45-million FMR in Barangay Alaguisoc, Jordan; P9.31-million FMR in Barangay Alegria, Sibunag; and P9.45-million FMR in Barangays San Roque, Nueva Valencia.

“A total of 1.74 kilometers of roads are now paved for better connectivity in the island province.”

The roads were completed as follows: 627 lineal meters in Brgy. Alaguisoc, 562 lineal meters in Brgy. Alegria, and 548 lineal meters in Brgy. San Roque.

All FMRs were completed in May 2021.

The public works chief, citing reports from DPWH Regional Office 6 Director Lea Delfinado and Guimaras District Engineer Rhodora Nuñal, said that all the projects have provisions for reflectorized thermoplastic pavement marking.  

A concrete slope protection was provided for the Brgy. Alaguisog FMR.

“These enhanced roads significantly benefit the residents of the province by making it possible to easily transport agricultural products to trading centers and market places at a lower cost and reduced time.”
