NAVAL, Biliran – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) -Biliran District Engineering Office (DEO) recently completed the construction of drainage project on two road sections along Biliran Circumferential Road (BCR) amounting to P74.88M.

The said project is located at Pob. Naval to Brgy. Atipolo in Naval town and at Brgy. Talahid to Brgy. Matanggo in Almeria town.

David P. Adongay Jr., District Engineer said that the road sections are subjected to excess run-off water during rainy days which sometimes cause flooding along the National road.

“With the completed project, flooding along our National Road will be prevented, thereby preventing our existing concrete road from deterioration against water,” said Adongay.

“This will earn the government savings in rehabilitating damaged pavement in the future,” he added.

The project entails the construction of covered drainage with a total length of 3,321.00 ln.m., constructed after a 3.05 m. widened shoulder. This is funded under the FY 2018 DPWH Infrastructure Program under contract with Rex E. Morales Construction.

Moreover, Adongay revealed that under 2019 implementation, the construction of drainage project will continue at Brgy. Tabunan in Almeria town with an appropriation amount of P15.88M.

The project entails the construction of concrete covered canal with a total length of 136.0 linear meter. It is to be constructed after the existing concrete paved road at one side only.

Aside from drainage project, Adongay said that flood control projects are also lined up for 2019 implementation amounting to P305.6M to protect lives and properties subjected to heavy floods during rainy days.
