PIA Press Release

PGMA to inaugurate new boundary road in Dupax, Nueva Viscaya

Dupax, Nueva Vizcaya (24 May) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will inaugurate today (Monday, May 24) the newly-paved Bitnong-Belance-Nueva Vizcaya junction national road, a 13.193-kilometer road, as part of her legacy projects to the country.

Upon her arrival there, the chief Executive will be met by Dupax del Norte Mayor Antonio Palugod, Belance Parish Priest Fr. Florentino Daynos and the Belance barangay chairmen.

The President will then board an open type jeep for the drive thru.

During the program, Nueva Vizcaya Governor Maria Luisa Cuaresma will deliver the welcome remarks to be followed by a message from Bishop Ramon Villena and a project briefing by Public Works and Highways Secretary Victor Domingo.

The newly-paved road costs P330 million and was started on November 8, 2008 and completed on April 30, 2010 or two months ahead of its target date of June 22, 2010.

Belance is an agriculture-rich community with a cool climate all year-round that is conducive to farming and planting of fruits, vegetables and root crops like citrus, cabbage, lettuce, yacon, ginger, sweet potato and others.

The road will not just help farmers deliver their produce to the market but will also trigger economic activities particularly vegetable and fruit trading in the municipalities of Bambang, Aritao, Bayombong and Solano.

The province's improved access road will also reduce travel time and will pave the way for opening new opportunities for Barangay Belance like transport, retail and commerce and generate jobs due to the inflow of new investments.

Around 1,000 barangay residents and government officials are expected to attend the inauguration. (PIA) [top]
