DPWH completes P65.71-B worth of roads and bridges in 2009

MANILA, Dec. 18 (PNA) -- In keeping with its vision of improving the life of every Filipino through quality infrastructure, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) completed from January to Nov. 2009 P65.719-billion worth of national roads and bridges nationwide.

A total of 6,186.473 kilometers of national roads and 54,945 lineal meters of national bridges were constructed/rehabilitated to improve the country’s transport system and alleviate poverty in the countryside and isolated regions.

DPWH Secretary Victor A. Domingo said that the intensified implementation of public works and highways projects has also enhanced peace and order in conflict-affected areas through efficient transport and trade; strengthened national unity, family bonds and tourism by making the movement of people faster, cheaper and safer; and facilitated the decongestion of traffic.

DPWH also facilitated countryside growth by widening the reach of opportunity and progress with the completion of 70 farm-to-market road projects.

Full completion of the remaining four on-going projects will enable the realization of the total target 76.694 kilometers improved/constructed farm to market road under the P90.911-million funds of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).

Also, to improve the delivery of agricultural goods and services, about 692 kms. of the target 1,313 kms. farm to market road nationwide were completed under the Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources (DENR) funds which has a program amount of P3.630-billion.
