DPWH starts P64.9-M road projects in Siargao Island
Among these are the P18.720 million Junction Cancohoy-Pilar Road (Cancohoy-Pilar Road Section), P27.495 million Junction Del Carmen-Sta. Monica-San Isidro Road (Del Carmen-Sta. Monica-San Isidro Road Section) and the P18.720 Million Junction Osmeña-Pilar Road (Osmeña-Pilar Road Section).
These road concreting projects are part of the Siargao circumferential road concreting plan of the DPWH-Surigao del Norte 2nd District Engineering Office.
District Engineer Salvador E. Montil, Jr. said the completion of these projects will improve access roads for tourists to various tourist spots in the island as well as farm to market roads.
Apart from these projects, DPWH is also repairing various roads destroyed by the continuous heavy rains in the past days.
The Department is doing everything to make roads passable especially during heavy rains and ensure influx of motorists in Siargao, DE Montil added. (Michael Conte, DPWH 2nd Engineering District)
