CALBAYOG CITY – The Department of Public Works and Highways -Samar First District Engineering Office completes the construction of 4,908 square meters of slope protection structures along Daang Maharlika in Rosalem, San Jorge, Samar.
It is under contract with Victoria Development and Construction Supply Corporation with a total appropriation of P50 million from the 2017 GAA fund.
Slope protection structures are designed to protect the soil surface from erosive forces and improve the stability of soil slopes that are subject to seepage or have poor soil structure.
“This project has a great benefit to us because it prevents road collapse in our area caused by the continuous heavy rains during the rainy season that weakened the soil surface,” said Juley Mabahin, a resident of Rosalem.
The project is of great impact especially to the residents of Rosalem and motorists passing along the said road section since possible soil erosion landslides or collapsed of road will be prevented.
