PRDP road project in Tabuk almost done
by Elvy Taquio

A 15-kilometer farm to market road will soon be ready for use by farmers and residents in Tabuk City, Kalinga.

Provincial Agriculturist Domingo A. Bakilan recently announced that the improvement of the Bulanao-Amlao FMR is now 85 percent complete, while side structures, including road signs needed to be installed after the road’s completion.

The 15.8-kilometer FMR is funded and implemented under the Department of Agriculture’s Philippine Rural Development Project (DA-PRDP) with a project cost of P180,281,000. It will support the coffee industry in the province and ease passage for residents and the transportation of goods and products from farms to the market that has been a long-time problem in the area.

PRDP Rural Infrastructure Engineer Orlando Panabang said side structures such as slope protections, drainages, and the rectification of defects need to be completed and complied with prior to the final inspection of the project.

Along with the FMR, the Kalinga Coffee Trading Center (KCTC) located at Barangay Bulanao will be turned over to six farmer cooperatives as proponent groups of the Kalinga Integrated Coffee Processing and Marketing Enterprise, a sub-project under the PRDP’s I-REAP (Enterprise Development) component.

The trading center will be used for the consolidation and marketing of green coffee beans from enterprise proponent group members.

“Before the year ends, we hope to turn over all the goods and processing equipment needed for the operation of the enterprise and the KCTC in time for the next harvest season,” said Jocelyn Beray, PRDP Regional Project Coordination Office-CAR I-REAP component head.

Kalinga has recently turned over the first FMR completed in the Cordillera under the PRDP, which is the Banneng-Gombowoy FMR in Tanudan.

The improvement of Catabbogan-Wagud FMR in Pinukpuk is also ongoing with a physical accomplishment of 37 percent as of May. Three more proposed enterprise and infrastructure subprojects are awaiting approval for its implementation.
