CATARMAN, Northern Samar- Farmers and local residents are now benefiting from the recently completed farm-to-market (FMR) road Phase II, in Barangay Jose Abad Santos, Bobon, this province.
OIC District Engineer Mario Villena said that the previously unpaved road was converted into two-lane concrete paved road with Grouted Riprap Slope Protection.
The 0.30-lane kilometer concrete road will give convenience to farmers and locals in transporting their farm products to the market centers, providing the community with the fresher goods for consumption. Motorists utilizing the said road section will no longer be burdened especially during rainy days, when the unpaved road was muddy and slippery posing hazard to their safety during travel.
The P9.8-million FMR project started its construction last March 22,2021 and was completed on June 22,2021, more than two (2) months ahead of schedule, funded under the convergence program of DPWH and Department of Agriculture (DA).
