The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) improved a 275- meter section of a local road leading to a public market in Guagua town in Pampanga province.

Located in Barangay Sto Niño, the P9.6-million project was funded under the 2022 national budget and includes construction of drainage canals on both sides.

“Heavy downpours often cause flooding along this particular stretch of road which has become a major problem for residents going to and from the Guagua Public Market which is located near the Pampanga River,” DPWH Pampanga second district engineer Gregorio Audea Jr. said in a Philippine Information Agency report.

“With the completion of this project, they no longer have to wade through flood waters,” he added.

The barangay’s secretary Janet Lapid expressed her gratitude for the completed project in the PIA report.

“Dati kasi yung way doon talagang lubog baha nagbabangka yung mga tao bago sila makalabas papunta ng palengke. We are grateful and thankful dahil pinondohan po itong proyekto na ito through DPWH,” Lapid said.
