CARIGARA, Leyte- The Department of Public Works and Highways-Leyte Second District Engineering Office allocated a total of P85 million for the construction of a concrete road leading to Villaconzoilo Agri and Ecotourism Farm and Silawa Falls, both in Burauen town.
The project involves 3.5 kilometers with the width of 6.1 meters and thickness of .028 meters, including culverts, excavation and embankment.
