The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is poised to finish construction of a farm-to-market road in Barangay Balite in Cabanatuan City by July this year.

The project was implemented by the Nueva Ecija second district engineering office with funding of P11.64 million under the 2022 General Appropriations Act, according to a Philippine Information Agency report.

“This is seen to greatly contribute to the agricultural economy of Barangay Balite,” district engineer Elpidio Trinidad was quoted as saying in the report.

The 1.403-kilometer road “will give farmers a faster and safer route for transporting their fresh produce and goods to Nueva Ecija’s major markets,” the report added.

The project is part of the agency’s convergence program with the Department of Agriculture.

“DPWH believes that providing the agricultural sector with adequate infrastructure will help accelerate the recovery of our farmers who have been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic,” Trinidad added.
