Road rehab program in Diwalwal ongoing

by RG Alama

Davao City (8 December) -- The P100-million road-widening/rehabilitation effort that traverses the road going to gold-rich Mount Diwata is now on-going.

During a press conference of the inter-agency Philippine Mineral Development Corporation (PMDC) held last Dec. 6 at the Mt. Diwata Barangay Hall, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) the road rehabilitation includes the widening of the narrow road to Diwalwal and gravel resurfacing of the dangerous rocky surface.

According to DPWH Regional Office XI representative Engineer William Nagar, the road rehabilitation starts at the junction of the national road in Monkayo proper to the multi-purpose gym in Barangay Mt. Diwata. The 21.9 km. project is expected to be completed in 505 days.

Engineer Zaldy Devora of Ulticon, the contractor of the Diwalwal road project, said the rehabilitation program will not be working full-blast but will be implemented by sections as some parts of the road is very difficult to construct and would make the whole road impassable. The road is the lone artery to the mining community.

Barangay Mt. Diwata Captain Franco Tito said the road will greatly benefit the people living in Diwalwal and is fully supportive of the project as the rehabilitation has long been the dream of many living in the community.

The road rehabilitation when finished will hopefully turn the road into a more dependable all-weather road as some stretches of the artery is impassable and dangerous uring heavy rains. (PIA XI) [top]
