The provincial government of Palawan inaugurated Monday the concreting project of the 8.646-kilometer road from Bgy. Magbabadil to Cabigaan, town of Aborlan.
The project, with a budget of some P105 M coming from the Kalsada Program of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Conditional Matching Grant for Provinces (CMGP), was awarded to the provincial government for achieving the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG).
Governor Jose Chavez Alvarez said the identification of the project where the money was appropriated was based on the needs of the province.
“Ang ground breaking ay seremonya lang, ngunit ang layunin ay malaman niyo na wala kaming pinipili,” Alvarez said.
“Kapag tag-ulan sobrang putik, kapag tag-araw napakaalikabok naman at ngayon maiibsan na ang kanilang pagtitiis,” Board Member Albert Rama said.
Sangguniang Bayan of Aborlan also passed a resolution thanking the support of the provincial government for the concreting of the provincial road along Magbabadil and Cabigaan.
“Isang katuparan dahil ngayon ay masesemyento na ang ating kalsada. Sa hinaba-haba ng panahon, laging inuulit-ulit ng Sangguniang bayan na ipaayos na at ngayon lamang maiisasakatuparan,” Municipal Mayor Jaime Ortega said.
