DPWH to improve Lubuagan-Batong Buhay-Abra road

Tabuk, Kalinga (12 November) -- Connectivity in the province is expected to be improved with the proposed Lubuagan-Batong-Buhay-Abra road.

Assistant Secretary Roy Manao of the Department of Public Works and Highways informed during the meeting of the Infrastructure Monitoring and Advisory Group (IMAG) of Kalinga that the feasibility study of the proposal has been completed and being packaged for its early funding.

He said the Cordillera Regional Development Council (RDC) has already approved the proposal and is awaiting funding support from financing institutions here and abroad.

He said this is part of President Noynoy Aquino's program of concreting all national highways by 2016 under the regional integration program aimed to connect all provinces between regions.

In the Cordilleras, Manao said the infrastructure agency wants to concrete the roads connecting Kalinga to Abra, Apayao and Mt. Province via Tanudan.

However, the stakeholders in the province were called early not to repeat the experiences on the SONA project when some people affected took advantage to claim for unreasonable demands causing enormous delay in the concreting of the Tabuk-Tinglayan national road.

Manao said the success of the proposed project depends on the support of the people and political leaders. "If it ever push through, everyone should be open hearted and refrain from disturbing its construction," he said. (PIA) [top]
