Under the improvement of roads, Gov. Cua has approved the barangay resolution requesting for the gradering of roads of said barangay and immediately instructed the Provincial Engineer, Ireneo Benavidez to bring dumptrucks, loaders and grader for the immediate gradering of the roads.

Barangay Captain Arwin Agbayani has expressed gratitude to the governor and to the agencies supporting the CARAVAN for choosing his barangay to be the first recipient of the project. He said this project is a big help to the residents of Mangandingay.
