PGMA to inaugurate Agusan Sur Jumbo Bridge

VERUELA, Agusan Del Sur – President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will inaugurate tomorrow (Monday, April 26) the P78.9 million San Jose Vicente A. del Rosario Jumbo Bridge, a project intended to improve transportation means and spur the socio-economic development of this municipality and its neighboring towns.

The Chief Executive will be welcomed by Agusan Del Sur Governor Maria Valentina Plaza, Veruela Mayor Salimar Mondejar, Agusan del Sur former Governor Adolf Edward Plaza, Barangay Chair Arnold Dairo and DAR-13 Director Faisar Mambuhay.

The President will then lead the inaugural drive-through along the 140 linear meter long bridge and later get a project briefing and then followed by short public program.

Some 5,000 Agusan del Sur residents as well as local officials and farmers are expected to attend the event.

The road project is a single lane – 140 lms PSCG (pre-stressed concrete girder) bridge constructed over the Agusan River with bridge approaches, slope protection and vehicles guard rails. The bridge is composed of four spans of 35.00 lms.

With the construction of the bridge, travel of people and products from Maharlika highway going to Veruela and back will be reduced by about 60 kms. This will lessen transportation costs and open investment opportunities not only in the area but also with its neighboring towns like Loreto, Sta. Josefa and Trento. (PND)
