TACLOBAN CITY – A coastal village in Borongan City will soon have a sturdy and better bridge, enough to stand with the occurrence of a flood.

Mayor Jose Ivan Dayan Agda promised to provide the residents of Barangay Siha of a bridge as the said area was rendered isolated after the city was hit by a continuous rain last week due to the low pressure area.

Agda visited the village last week and said that the city government will look for the needed funding to construct the bridge.

The city mayor said that they need at least P27 million for the construction of said Siha bridge.

Siha resident Randel Algo said that they are counting on the promise of Agda.

“At long last, this gives us hope. We’ve been dreaming and waiting to have a better and elevated bridge. Hopefully, like what is posted over the social media account of the city government, soon residents will no longer have to worry crossing the river whenever it rains,” he said.

He said that the promised bridge will be a big help to them residents, especially during inclement weather.
