BARUGO, Leyte – A total of P39.2 million has been allocated for the construction of Minuhang (Baluarte)-Balud and Balud-Duka road in Barugo, Leyte, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Leyte Second district engineering office reported.
With the 154.8 meters bridge with a width of 7.32 meters, residents of Minuhang, Balud, and Duka could easily transport their agricultural and marine products.
According to District Engineer Gerald Pacanan, the construction of this project aims to support the Barugo Eco Zone and improve trade, investment, employment, education and overall progress in the said town.
“Once completed, this road network would provide access to all kinds of vehicles, thus, transportation of commodities will be easier and cheaper. Moreover, this would also grant safer and shorter travels for students in going to and from their schools,” he added.
This road network is located along the Bagahupi-Babatngon-Sta. Cruz-Barugo-Carigara national highway.
Moreover, the project will also serve as an alternate route in the event that Palo-Carigara-Ormoc road is not passable.
The access road is targeted to be completed before the year ends.
