PIA Press Release

CARP-funded infrastructure projects in Quirino completed

DIFFUN, Quirino (September 5) -- Farmers from the forest barangays of Dumanisi, San Pascual, Magsaysay, Rafael Palma, Macate and Ifugao Village are very thankful to the Department Agrarian Reform for the rehabilitation of Ricarte Norte to Ifugao Village farm to market road.

Based on the report from the Department of Agrarian Reform, the infrastructure projects (rehabilitation of farm to market roads) were requested by Cong. Junie E. Cua from the Department of Agrarian Reform thru Sec. Nasser Pangandanan.

Among the FMR's that were asphalted are the Ricarte Norte to San Pascual Farm to Market Road, 1,920 kms and costs P1,343,469.94; Macate-Ifugao FMR is 3880 kms. and costs P9,575, 653.73. The rehabilitation of Magsaysay-Rafael Palma FMR, 9,290 kms has a total cost of P7,636, 368.14 and is now 55% completed.

The asphalting of Ricarte Norte to San Pascual, Magsaysay to Rafael Palma and Macate to Ifugao Village farm to market road, will benefit farmers from the forest barangays of Diffun who have been complaining from the hardship of bringing their products to the market due to the bad condition of their roads specially during rainy season.

Before, during rainy days, public utility jeepneys can no longer travel to the forest barangays due to the knee-deep mud in the road. Farmers were forced to transport their products thru the use of their farm cart being pulled by their carabaos. It took them long hours before they could reach the market.

With the improvement of the roads, farmers from the forest regions hoped to bring more products to the market without suffering from the long hours of hiking during rainy days. (PIA Quirino) [top]
