CITY OF ILAGAN, Isabela, JUne 14 (PIA) – – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is now fast tracking the concreting of the 3.45-kilometer farm-to-market-road in Barangay Lullutan here, leading to the municipality of Quirino.
Once completed, Isabela District Engineer Evelyn C. Costales said farm-to-market road will hasten transportation of agricultural products and provide a more comfortable travelling experience to farmers and other motorists in the city.
Costales said the construction of the farm-to-market road is part of the convergence program between the DPWH and the Department of Agriculture (DA) which aimed at increasing farmers’ agricultural productivity and reducing income losses due to challenges in transportation.
“The P28.1 million paving of Barangay Lullutan Road is for completion within this month of June as we are on the final phase of construction at 94.8 percent as of May 31,” the district engineer added.
Aside from this project, DPWH also completed another two-kilometer farm-to-market road improvement in Barangay San Antonio, Ilagan costing P9.85 million. It involves the paving of Barangay San Antonio road from Cabicera 22 to Cabicera 10.
Costales added that these two construction and improvement projects along local roads in Ilagan commenced February this year and were funded under the 2018 General Appropriation Act (GAA). (ALM/PIA-2/DPWH press release)
