NAVAL, Biliran – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Biliran District Engineering Office completes first phase of the construction/ improvement of access road from National Road Junction (NRJ) of Villa Consuelo connecting Brgy. Libtong Road in Naval, Biliran.
The project involves the construction of two lanes road with a length of 1.20-kilometer and a width of 6.70-meter with construction of drainage costing P30M.
Brgy. Villa Consuelo and Brgy. Libtong is known for its coco sugar products and potential for ginger powder processing, turmeric, banana chips, cacao and coffee among others, hence prioritized under the 2018 implementation.
According to District Engineer David P. Adongay Jr., the said project involves reconstruction of 7.0-kilometer road and 30-linear meter bridge to be implemented on a multi-year basis up to year 2020.
The completion of the project will provide a better and faster transport of the agribusiness: food and resource-based processing in Brgy. Villa Consuelo and Brgy. Libtong Naval, Biliran. This will benefit more or less 1,000 road users.
Through better road linking trades and industries, more locals will be encouraged to do business that will eventually help improve the economic situation in the province.
