DPWH-Siargao to construct Katipunan-Maasin farm to market road in Pilar

By Michael O. Conte

SURIGAO CITY, Mar. 1 (PIA) -- To improve the inter-barangay and inter-municipal linkages for better agro and aqua economic activities in Siargao Island, the government has earmarked P5 million for the construction of Katipunan-Maasin Farm to Market road in Pilar town to be undertaken by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) this year.

“When completed, the road will serve as faster alternate route for farmers and fisher folks from the villages of Katipunan, Maasin, Salvacion and Mabuhay in transporting their products to market centers in the nearby municipalities,” said District Engineer Salvador E. Montil, Jr.

The road project will connect the remote villages to Junction OsmeƱa-Pilar national highway via the village of Maasin that will facilitate better access and delivery of agricultural and marine products.

The project is funded by the Department of Agriculture (DA) through Surigao del Norte 1st District Rep. Francisco T. Matugas.

In Socorro town, the DPWH has implemented rehabilitation and repair of the San Roque-Nueva Estrella FMR, Navarro-Lobo FMR, and Nueva Estrella-Catansoy FMR (Phase 3) at a cost of P3 million sourced from the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) of Cong. Matugas. (DPWH-Siargao/FEA/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
