DAR rehabilitates 10-km Tarangnan road in Samar

piaQUEZON CITY, Aug. 20 – No more bumpy rides from Barangay Balugo to the town proper of Tarangnan in Samar, after the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) rehabilitated the 10-kilometer road.

DAR Regional Director Sheila Enciso formally turned over the rehabilitated Balugo-Imelda farm-to-market road to Mayor Danilo Tan for the local government unit’s (LGU) maintenance of the said project.  

Enciso explained to the recipient LGU the latter’s responsibility in the maintenance of the project. She stressed that if properly maintained in good condition within 10 years, the loan will be converted into a grant.  

Included in the rehabilitation were spot concreting of about 6.5 kilometers and the construction of slope protections to prevent soil erosion that may lead to eventual damage of the road.  

Enciso also said that agricultural production and farmer’s income are expected to increase now that transportation of their products for trading will be much easier with the improved road.  

The project was implemented under the DAR’s Agrarian Reform Communities Project (ARCP) funded by a loan from the Asian Development Bank. The total project cost amounted to ₱25.4-million. The amount was shared by the LGU shouldering ₱14.6-million, while the remaining ₱10.7-million was funded by ADB.  

Mayor Tan thanked the DAR for the rehabilitation of the Balugo-Imelda road. He said Tarangnan was a recipient of another road project under ARCP in the past. “We are hoping that more blessings from the DAR be poured to our municipality as there are still many roads that need repair.”  

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer (PARPO) Leovigildo Monge said the project was implemented in the Cambatutay Agrarian Reform Community (ARC) passing through the Barangays of Balugo, Bahay, Gallego, Camunghan and Imelda.  

According to him, some 2,700 residents and farmers in this area are the beneficiaries of the projects where 286 are agrarian reform beneficiaries. (DAR)
