On June 3, 2014 a pre-construction conference for the 3,483.50 m Lalaguna to Umabay Interior Farm-to-Market (FMR) Road was held in LA UMA EXIN PI ARC, Mobo, Masbate. The FMR amounting to 17,593,026 pesos (with a letter of allotment advice of 15,331,065 pesos) is a component of the JICA-funded Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Program - Phase III of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).


The conference was aimed at encouraging closer coordination between and among the stakeholders, i.e. DAR, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and the Local Government of Mobo for smooth project execution.reg5pic19

Regional Director Luis B. Bueno, Jr. led the DAR team composed of Engrs. Imelda Lambojon and Jayciel Bartolome of the DAR-Central Project Monitoring Office, ARISP III Consultant Yukihiro Kawahara, OIC-PARPO II Samuel R. Ongcal, Jr. and OIC-PARPO I Herald R. Tambal of DARPO-Masbate, and OIC-MARPO Edwin C. Yanzon of DARMO-Masbate City/Mobo.

The LGU of Mobo was represented by Mayor Percival Castillo and Municipal Engineer Rodolfo Galido; while Engrs. Noel L. Sambajon and Carlos V. Aban were the frontrunners for the DPWH.

Before the pre-construction conference ensued the entire inspection contingent conducted an onsite inspection of the ongoing road clearing work which according to the DPWH already constitutes 14 percent actual work of the construction project.

Engrs. Imelda Lambojon and Noel L. Sambajon were the main discussants during the conference in which the organizational structure for construction, contract details, as-staked plans, work schedule, and control program including relevant construction strategies and implementation were openly discussed and conveyed to all the attendees.

In their respective messages, RD Bueno and Mayor Castillo both expressed that once this more than three kilometer-FMR is finished, it will bring economic progress and development to the LA UMA EXIN PI Agrarian Reform Community. (RAL-PIO)
