Access to market becomes easier for farmers, IPs in Aurora town

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has inaugurated a 50-meter two-lane bridge in Maria Aurora town in Aurora province.

Located in Barangay Bayanihan, the infrastructure is seen to open new opportunities not only for residents but also for the Egongot tribe as it will ease transport of their agricultural products to a nearby market.

According to DPWH Aurora District Engineer Roderick Andal, the P57.9-million project also includes construction of a 286-meter flood control structure and 263 meters of road approaches.

“With its completion, villagers will no longer have to cross the rock-strewn river that also overflows during heavy rains and typhoons,” he said.

Officials said it will not only provide residents with better mobility, but will also improve the delivery of basic social services in communities that have become more accessible.

The project was implemented in support of the government’s goal of providing infrastructure services to remote areas for their continued development.
