P1.4 B–worth infrastructure projects to be completed in MP
by Alfred Macalling

NATONIN, Mountain Province – The Second District Engineering Office is set to complete P1.54 billion worth of projects in the eastern parts of the province this year.

A total of 21 projects worth P765.61 million were appropriated for the improvement of Junction Talubin-Barlig-Natonin-Paracelis-Calaccad National Road and improvement of access roads leading to trade, industries, and economic zones of the eastern municipalities.

The projects include widening, concreting, and construction of flood mitigation structures such as slope protection, retaining walls, and drainage systems.

The projects also include the construction of multipurpose buildings in Barlig and Natonin, completion of the MPDEO building, and other structures.

The office is also implementing 10 projects worth P713.7M from the Department of Public Works and Highways central office.

This includes the construction of flood control at Paracelis and P70M for the improvement Natonin Municipal Road and Natonin-Toboy Road from the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process through the Pamana program.

These funds were downloaded to the DPWH on the last quarter of 2017.

MPDEO-Officer-in-Charge Rustom A. Martinez said that all projects have been awarded and some of the contractors started the implementation in February. He is optimistic that all major roads in their jurisdiction will be concreted.

Martinez said that the improvement of completion of the roads will ease travel and help increase the productivity and profitability of farmers in the area.

Claro M. Basilan, one of the affected lot owners, said they agreed to allow the use of their properties to pave the way for the widening of the roads according to the standards and specifications of the DPWH.

Former board member Marcelino T. Balaso, a resident of this town, said travel time from Bontoc to Paracelis via Natonin will take around three hours once the concreting is done.

The concreting of another multi-million farm-to-market road, which were coursed through the provincial government, from the Konkreto at ayos na lansangan ang daan tungo sa pangkalahatang kaunlaran and Philippine Rural Development Program of the national government, for various access roads in Paracelis is also expected to be completed this year.
