piaILOILO CITY, February 4 (PIA) --- Projects under the Tulay ng Pangulo para sa Kaunlarang Pang-Agraryo (TPKP) that will benefit agrarian reform communities here are just awaiting for implementation, said the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Iloilo provincial office.

The TPKP project involves the construction, installation and establishment of "universal bridges" in priority agrarian reform communities (ARCs) and Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) covered areas.

The Calumbuyan Bridge in Calumbuyan, New Lucena, Iloilo, and the Nabitasan Bridge in Nabitasan, Pototan, Iloilo are for survey and geological testing.

In the same report, nine other bridges in the province also underwent validation.
