Farm-to-Market Road in Negros Occidental Now Complete–DPWH
The farm-to-market road in the municipality of Mamburao, Negros Occidental has been completed, which would make the transport of farm goods faster in the area.
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has just finished the farm-to-market road (FMR) project in Sitio Banakan, Barangay Tangkalan.
The 750-meter project, which was completed on time, earned praises from Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar.
The said road project was under DPWH Region 4B Director Wilfredo Mallari and improves the access of residents to social services and other facilities.
Under the 2018 General Appropriations Act (GAA), a new five-meter paved carriageway with 1.5-meter-wide shoulder and gabions for slope protections was implemented by DPWH Region 4B, at a total cost of PHP9.5-million.
“We at DPWH are really working hard to provide more roads to improve accessibility and open new possibilities for our fellow Filipinos and promote inclusive national development,” Villar said.
