The Department of Public Works and Highways Eastern Samar District Engineering Office is set to implement two farm-to-market road(FMR) projects for the year 2020; 600 meters two-lane road in Barangay Polangi to Brgy. Gayam, Taft and 830 meters two-lane road in Brgy. Bonghon to Brgy. Sto Nino, Dolores.
The FMR projects are funded by the Department of Agriculture (DA) with a total fund allocation of Php 24.5M.
District Engineer Manolo A. Rojas said that the project is expected to be implemented this August 20, 2020. He also directed project engineers and contractors to implement the project in accordance with DPWH standard and specification and to follow COVID-19 protocols during construction.
“These projects will be a big help to our farmers especially on the transportation of farm products to the market which will be a lot easier once the road is completed,” DE Rojas added.
He also disclosed that the road will be a big help to carry out government services to the inner localities and the road will provide safe and convenient transport from the interior barangay to the town proper especially during emergencies.
District Engineer Manolo A. Rojas also directed that all 2020 and prior year projects should be completed before the year ends including the construction of these two FMR projects.
