To strengthen the efficient delivery of basic services in rural barangays, Baguio City Rep. Mark Go filed a measure establishing the Barangay Road Development program.

House Bill 6014, also known as the Barangay Road Development program, primarily authorizes the Department of Public Works and Highways to undertake the construction of road projects which will go directly to the identified barangays in the country.

“DPWH shall identify the barangay beneficiaries under this program by coordinating with the cities and municipalities. It shall be in charge from planning and assessment up to the implementation and monitoring of the projects,” Go said.

Philippine Statistical Authority data show that the country has 42,036 barangays, of which only 13.6 percent or 5,716 barangays were classified as urban. Most local government units, particularly in rural areas, lack sufficient funding and resources to continuously improve barangay roads and other infrastructure.

Go said once the bill is passed, it will connect various barangays to business centers resulting to more business opportunities and development in the cities and municipalities throughout the country.

“The construction of the roads under this program will enhance the flow of commerce and trade and provide more convenient and faster access in transporting basic goods and services from urban to rural areas,” Go said.

“The Barangay Road Development program will also sustain regional industries, improve agricultural and tourism activities, and promote the best condition for the general welfare of the commuters,” he added.
