DAR inaugurates P124-M Quirino province bridge

businessworldThe Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently inaugurated a bridge woth P124.28 million which will serve residents in Quirino province previously dependent on ferries tobring their goods across the river.

According to the statement released by the DAR on Monday, the 570-meter bridge will benefit residents from Sitio Katimbang in Barangay San Ramos, Nagtipunan, Quirino.

In the statement, Regional Director Marjorie P. Ayson, a lawyer, said that the bridge will “improve the mobility of the townspeople, who relied heavily on old wooden rafts to ferry residents and their farm produce across the Nagtipunan River and to the market.”

Ms. Ayson added that the project was made through the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project which is supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

ARISP, now on its third phase of implementation, aims to build and rehabilitate 111 irrigation facilities, an estimated 677 kilometers of farm-to-market roads, and 81 potable water sources, among others.
