4 farm-to-market roads inaugurated in Abra
by Mary Joy G. Maguide

Four farm-to-market roads in Luba, Abra were inaugurated and turned over last March 27 to the beneficiary community and the local government unit.

The four sub-projects are the Balakbak-Barbarit FMR, Caniogan-Gayaman FMR, Patay-End of ADM FMR, and Tuquipa-Botot-Tuquipa-Luzong FMR, measuring a total length of 7,806 kilometers and worth P21.7 million.

The sub-projects, benefitting 118 households from the four barangays, were funded under the Scaling-Up of the Cordillera Highland Agriculture Resource Management Project 2 in Abra.

“The barangay is now accessible. Teachers and parents can now wear their stilettos in attending special events in the community. Students no longer have to carry their shoes in going to school, and most importantly, agricultural products can now be transported to the market with ease,” said Pastor Artemio Dumalanta during the projects’ blessing and inauguration of the four rural infrastructure sub-projects in Nagbuquel-Tuquipa, Luba, Abra.

“During the rainy season, we encounter a lot of hardship. A lot of farm produce are not sold and were left to rot. Students will carry their slippers in going to school. Pregnant women or sick individuals were carried on a hammock,” he added.

Rural Infrastructure Development Coordinator, Engr. Filemon Salvador, congratulated the beneficiaries and local government unit for sustaining their good performance, saying the barangay is the first to report their completion of the sub-projects last year and that theirs were the first infrastructure sub-projects turned over.

Department of Agriculture OIC Regional Executive Director  Cameron Odsey thanked the community for their participation and sacrifice that led to the successful implementation of the subprojects.
