P23-M Farm-to-Market Road Inaugurated PDF Print E-mail
Written by Vincent Bigcas   
The 3.5-kilometer road project was under the Department of Agrarian Reform’s (DAR) Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Program, with the support of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

It aimed to provide a more efficient flow of people and goods, particularly in the seven barangays of this town and two of Pilar, and better accessibility and mobility between the principal production and potential development areas.

It also sought to create new rural to urban development, enhance land values and decongest the existing urban center.

The project was turned over to Barangay Captains Asher de Lugar of Carmencita and Mario Celino of Santo Niño.

Kirskat Venture, owned by Leodegario Labao Jr., was the contractor of the project.

Those who witnessed the inauguration and turnover include Japan International Cooperation Agency consultant Yukihiro Kawahara, DAR Regional Director Alexis Arsenal, Vice Gov. Esteban Evan “Nonoy” Contreras, Capiz First Engineering District Engineer Sanny Boy Oropel, President Roxas Vice Mayor Alfonso Golero, and other local officials.

Oropel thanked the local officials and the residents for supporting the project, and appealed to them to help maintain the road. He revised the original one-lane plan and made the road two lanes.

Other supporters of the project were the provincial government under Gov. Victor Tanco, 1st District Rep. Antonio del Rosario, and the municipal government of President Roxas under Mayor Raymund Locsin.

Meanwhile, Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer Ma. Teresa Valencia said a P20-million bridge component project will be built next year.

Valencia said she also expects potable water supply to be made available soon to the residents and the public elementary school in the area./PN
