DAVAO City — The 2.792-kilometer road concreting project implemented in the province of Compostela Valley through the “Kalsada” Program of President Rodrigo Duterte is now complete, the provincial information office said.
The project, dubbed as “Nabunturan-Saosao-Nuevo Iloco Road Concreting Project” was given by President Duterte to the province through the Department of Interior and Local Government and the Department of Budget and Management.
The project was completed under the supervision of the Road Management Team in the province that was created by Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy.
The “Nabunturan-Saosao-Nuevo Iloco Road Concreting Project” is among the four projects of “Kalsada Program” in Compostela Valley. Each of the projects has a cost of P30,581,147.13, the team added.
Three more projects to be implemented under the “Kalsada Program” include the 2.32-kilometer Awao Road-San Jose Section in Monkayo town; the 2.62-kilometer Mayaon,Montevista-San Antonio, Laak Road (Junction Canidkid-Mayaon Section); and the 3.14-kilometer Dumlan-Anibongan-Lapulapu Road in Maco town.
The DILG and DBM have already allocated millions of budget to Compostela Valley for road concreting projects under the “Kalsada Program” of Duterte.
Most of the projects cover the upgrading of provincial roads from gravel to concrete roads, the team reported.
Uy said the concreting of these provincial roads is vital to the local residents in the area, particularly the farmers. (pna)
