Comval eyes rehab of prov'l roads

by RG Alama

Davao City (11 October) -- The Provincial Government of Compostela Valley is focusing on developing and rehabilitating its provincial roads to spur development in the remote hinterlands.

According to Provincial Governor Arturo Uy, during his First 100-days report held last Tuesday (Oct. 9) in the Provincial Capitol in Nabunturan, the province is focusing on infrastructure particularly the concreting and rehabilitation of provincial roads.

He said that there are at least 4 to 5 concreting projects currently undertaken together with the innovative Lusong Comval Program which is basically a "bayanihan" effort among the different Local Government Units in the maintenance and repair of provincial roads. The Governor is also targeting the rehabilitation of Farm-to-market roads to uplift the livelihood opportunities of the farmers in the province.

Lack of access from farms-to-markets which leads to limited livelihood in Comval hinterlands have been blamed for the constant presence of communist New People's Army guerillas in the province which currently is home to at least six guerilla front committees.

On the other hand, Governor Uy said that they are asking for the reclassification of the Nabunturan-Maragusan road as a national alternate road, which he aims to develop the mostly dirt road network into an all-weather concrete artery that connects the capital town of Nabunturan to the cool highland town of Maragusan known for its rich tourism attractions.
