DAR turns over P69.8M road projects in Gamay, Northern Samar
The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) said it has recently turned over P69.8-million worth of three farm-to-market roads in Gamay, Northern Samar.
The road projects are aimed to provide easier and faster access for farmers to transport their agricultural products to various markets, commercial trades, and other communities.
Regional Director Sheila Enciso said the farm-to-market roads are contiguous passing through the barangays of Cagamutan, Bato, Bangon and GM Osias with an aggregate length of 8.3 kilometers. The road project in Barangay Bangon is constructed with a 30-linear meter bridge.
“Because of the bridge constructed in with this road, the farmers and the residents don’t have to wade through the river anymore in crossing Barangay Bangon,” Enciso said.
Enciso said all projects are implemented under the second phase of the Agrarian Reform Communities Project (ARCP-II).
Aside from the four barangays where the projects are situated, Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer (PARPO) Nida Abelido said that residents from seven more remote villages also benefited from the road project.
