The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed a farm-to-market road (FMR) in Dinalupihan, Bataan. The infrastructure located in Barangay San Simon resulted in improved mobility of people, products, and services.
DPWH Bataan 1st District Engineer Erlindo Flores Jr. said the project is a joint undertaking of the agency and Department of Agriculture. It was implemented in two different sections of the San Simon FMR. “A total of 666.00-linear meters of the road were improved under Section I, while 427.83 linear meters were concreted under Section II of this project,” Flores told 1Bataan News
Implementation of projects like FMRs are among the priority plans of the current administration to help improve the agricultural sector. Meanwhile, in Morong, DPWH also completed the improvement of a road section, an asphalt overlay project along the 861.66-lineal meter section of Bataan Technological Park, Inc. (BTPI) Road.
Flores said the road improvement aims to provide ecozone locators better access to the BTPI.
He added that they are committed on repairing defects and damage to the pavement on the road networks leading to tourism and industrial zones of the province.
