BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya, July 30 (PIA) – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has started the repair of eroded road portions in Kasibu town in preparation for the rainy season.
Engineer Glen Miguel, DPWH 2nd district chief said the agency is now supervising the Restoration of Roadslip/Eroded shoulder along Papaya-Malabing-Wangal-Binogawan-Tadji-Runruno Road in Kasibu town.
The project was funded under the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (NDRRM) Fund amounting to more than P4.7 million.
“We have to take advantage of the good weather condition since rainy season is approaching. Completion of this project ahead of time will ease the worries of the farmers from flooding during the rainy season,” Miguel added.
He also said that the repair of damaged stone masonry at the right riverbank will serve as protection to the rice fields while the restoration works will also ensure the safety of the motorists as they travel along the area.
According to Miguel, the ongoing project in Kasibu town has a total length of 154.4 linear meters of stone masonry.
The project which was started last June 8, 2020 with the target completion date on September 25, 2020 is already 40.22 percent accomplished.
The Papaya-Malabing-Wangal-Binogawan-Tadji-Runruno road repair project is being implemented through the DPWH’s Road Rehabilitation of Disaster – Related Infrastructure and Other Facilities program which included those wrought by typhoon “Tisoy” in December last year.
Miguel said they continue to provide and manage Quality Infrastructures in compliance with the rules and regulations as stated under D.O. 39, series of 2020, re: Construction Safety Guidelines for the implementation of projects during Covid-19 Pandemic. (MDCT/BME/PIA 2-Nueva Vizcaya)
