P24.5M road concretized in Aurora town – DPWH
A P24.5 milllion project to concretize the 3.448-kilometer San Jose-Barangay 2 Road in Maria Aurora town in Aurora province is complete, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways.
In a Philippine Information Agency report, DPWH Aurora District Engineer Roderick Andal said the completion of the project would bring convenience to motorists who had to pass through the area on rough road.
“Now, farmers and the locals alike are enjoying a more convenient and faster travel to this hinterland. Agricultural products, such as coconut and rice can now be brought to market easily by our farmers,” he was quoted as saying.
The project was funded under the DPWH’s 2020 Local Infrastructure Program, according to the report.
“The bigger picture of this accomplishment is what keeps us really proud,” Andal said.
“Aside from the shortened travel time, the coconut and rice farmers are benefiting from reduced gas consumption in transporting their products to the market because buyers from neighboring areas directly pick up the produce here, keeping the market prices low for everyone to afford,” he added.
