MCA official assures Samarnons a durable road network

By Ninfa B Quirante

Catbalogan, Samar (December 3) -- Officials of the Millenium Challenge Account (MCA) assured Samarnons that the roads they will finance will last at least 20 years.

In an interview with Mr Matthew Bohn, Country Director of MCA in Calbayog City, during the closing ceremony of the International Justice Mission (NGO fighting human trafficking) Lamb told the media how their people are carefully studying, designing and planning the road network.

"We are carefully studying the proposed road like sediment planning and all," Bohn told the media.

He added that by 2011, bids will be over and emphasized how strict they will be in awarding the contract.

Further, Bohn said that contractors should abide by their procurement guidelines and that they will choose the construction firms that have the capability, transparency and modern techniques.

"It is a very detailed engineering design to last for some twenty years," Bohn said.

The MCA is funding the Wright-Taft road and Taft-Guiuan coverning mostly Eastern Samar towns of a 222 kms road network.

The road network connecting 16 municipalities of Samar for a proposed $214.4M road project which will be implemented by 2012, but preparations for the project has been going on.

The amount is part of the approved $434 million compact with the Government of the Republic of the Philippines aimed at reducing poverty through economic growth. (PIA-Samar) [top]
