NAVAL, Biliran – The existing one lane concrete road at Brgy. Viga - Brgy. Agutay section in Maripipi town will undergo road rehabilitation/ reconstruction to provide a safe riding surface to more or less 3,000 travellers along Maripipi Circumferential Road.

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Biliran District Engineering Office has included the prioritization of this project under FY 2019 Regular Infrastructure Program with an appropriation amount of P50M.

David P. Adongay Jr., District Engineer said that the project was prioritized because of the dilapidated state of the existing concrete pavement.

“Aside from its bad condition, the pavement is sub-standard in width and in thickness, thus recommended for rehabilitation,” said Adongay.

The project involves the removal of damaged substandard concrete pavement to be replaced by a two lane concrete pavement of 6.10 meters width, 0.28 m. thickness with a total length of 1.5-kilometer.

According to Adongay, the realization of the project will provide the residents of the place a wider and safer concrete paved road as well as provide convenience in transporting their agricultural and aquatic products to market centers. This road also leads to some tourist sites within the town of Maripipi, the only island municipality in the province.
